Has anyone ever managed to book a round the world ticket using air miles?
Did you do it yourself through you airline loyalty programme or did you have to call them and organise it over the phone?
Was it easy enough to organise?
I have a heap of Avios (British Airways / One World) points and will have even more by this time next year so was considering a couple of business class round the world tickets with a few stop offs. Starting in London and then something along the lines of Miami, Memphis (wife is an Elvis fan), Las Vegas and/or San Francisco, Sydney, Singapore, Dubai and back to London. Probably over 3 to 4 weeks.
Also, potentially cruise between San Francisco or Los Angeles and Sydney so would not need this flight segment. Would we be able to miss this segment out but still do the itinerary on a round the world ticket?
