I wonder whether the 24 hour limit differentiates between transit and stop overs. This will make it particularly attractive as it allows back tracking as well

Quick trivia question...the first one to know (or even have been to) all these airport codes gets a free drink...

The following routing is possible with this RTW ticket - all flights in business class, total cost (excluding taxes and fees) about 3,300 Euro:

CAI-xNBO-SEZ-xNBO-xJNB-CPT-EZE-xPTY-CCS-xPTY-UIO-xPTY-SJO-xPTY-xGUA-xIAH-NAS-xIAH-HNL-xMAJ-xKWA-xKSA-xPNI-xTKK-xGUM-ROR-xMNL-xKUL-MLE-xDXB-CAI

If you want to see how that looks on the map... http://makeashorterlink.com/?D2CF12484

Admittedly, I like exotic locations and beaches... http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/biggrin.gif.

I'd probably never really do this one, it's just to show that this RTW seems to offer some interesting routings not possible with the other carriers...

WOW What a tremendous effort! Hats of to you for one of the most innovative routings I have seen.

I know most of the codes. What city represents the following codes
xKWA-xKSA-xPNI-xTKK

Can you also create another add on in your magnificent website indicating airlines?

CAI-NBO KQ 321
NBO-SEZ KQ 450
SEZ-NBO KQ 451
NBO-JNB SA 185
JNB-CPT e.g., SA 307
CPT-EZE MH 201
EZE-PTY CM 448
PTY-CCS e.g., CM 223
CCS-PTY e.g., CM 222
PTY-UIO CM 271
UIO-PTY CM 270
PTY-SJO e.g., CM 110
SJO-PTY e.g., CM 111
PTY-GUA e.g., CM 111
GUA-IAH e.g., CO 1120
IAH-NAS CO 1452 (only operates until August)
NAS-IAH CO 1455
IAH-HNL e.g., CO 1
HNL-MAJ CO 957 (this one and the following flights are with COMICRONESIA, but not excluded according to rules)
MAJ-KWA CO 957 (Kwajalein, Marshall Islands)
KWA-KSA CO 957 (Kosrae, Micronesia)
KSA-PNI CO 957 (Pohnpei, Micronesia)
PNI-TKK CO 957/959 (Truk, Micronesia)
TKK-GUM CO 957/959
GUM-ROR CO 953
ROR-MNL CO 891/894
MNL-KUL e.g., MH 705
KUL-MLE MH 189
MLE-DXB EK 552
DXB-CAI EK 925


You'd probably need to pay for a few stopovers in Micronesia as these flights don't go on a daily basis and you could not leave again within 24 hours.

If you don't really have THAT much interest in Micronesia, you could instead take Air Pacific from HNL and go to Australia through Fiji, and perhaps also get to see the Solomon Islands on the way.

While typing this up, I realized there aren't even any KLM/NW or Malev flights and Europe is not included. Well, I guess with 40,000 miles, one could find a bunch of other itineraries that might make more sense http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/smile.gif.

I booked this fare last summer in BKK thru the Continental GSA and found it great if being used for leisure travel.
My routing was BKK-X-KUL-JKT surfaceDPS-xGUM-xNRT-xEWR-BDL.
I then did a Winter break of BDL-xEWR-UIO-xPTY-SDQ-EWR
and am set for the summer with MAD-AMS-DEL-SXR-xDEL-MAA-xKUL-JKT-xKUL-BKK.
Since the majority of the carriers don't have First Cabins, the C fare (and this was the 35,000 miler) was just right.

I paid about $4250.00US with taxes and one extra segment ($100) included--of course that was last summer's exchange rate.
