As far as I know, LH and QR have a code share agreement between Munich and Doha. So maybe you can book them on your RTW trip. The question is how to continue from DOH. I'm not sure if Thai serves DOH from BKK.

I was just going to say that but I dont think so that codeshared flights of non Star partners applies to the ROW tkt. Otherwise then the choice if u include the codeshare partners of each STAR partner would be huge.
I wouldnt bet on u being allowed to fly QR MUC-DOH !!!

QR serve alchohol on all their routes. They are a great airline and deserve this title, but with my personal experience they are amazing on European routes, but on mideast routes they are much worse in terms of service.
