I am looking at some multi-stop flights to australia from the UK via Asia. I am not dead set on a route but i have some places i know i want to visit. Emirates and Malaysian are offering some very good prices but obviously you have to stick to their their specific routings to keep the costs down.
I am aware of airline alliances such as oneworld, skyteam and star alliance that offer round the world flights and regional airpasses through various routes due to the ability to use a combination of airlines.
Is it possible to get a similar set up to this that does not involve having to go all the way round world?
