Thanks for your fast reply. I know the website of Star Allience, but it's a disadvantage, because I have to name the exactly day of the trip (not +/- 3 days). OZ serves TAS only two times a week, so I found the connection via ICN by hazard. It would be better, if the website informs that the routing could be able on another day. And I've to ask specifically for the flight ICN- TAS on Tuesday or friday. A connection from FRA is not shown.
So either I'd have to check every several day for inbound and for outbound flights, or I'd have to ask one of the flight enthusiasts here. Maybe there's someone who knows a more interesting routing via middle east or asia.

Can you give us a rough time frame (= months in which you´d like to travel) to play with ? Also: What´s your preferred departure airport ? PAD ? HAJ ?
Or how far would you be willing to travel to a different departure airport ?
Have you tried to build connections via BKK ?
TK is offering connections to TUS via IST (at least from FRA and DUS).
If you don´t mind to travel on seperate tickets, you probably can also fly through DXB or similar.
Build a routing through Teheran THR ?
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !
The problem with stops in BKK, SIN or HKG will be that you will backtrack in your routing.
If flying on a RTW-ticket, you should check whether this is allowed or not.
If flying on a regular return ticket Germany-TAS, a routing via BKK/SIN/HKG probably will drive up costs !
None of the "regulars" seem to offer such a routing.
Also, www.amadeus.net does not list any non-stops between DXB and TAS (for flights in May 2005), but you could connect in THR (need a visa ?).
Also, there should be other carriers available out of the UAE who are not available on Amadeus (but I don´t know how to check/book their flights).
