If you were to take a round the world trip, what cities/ countries would you fly to and on which airlines? I did one this year, and have one planned for next year. But here would be my ideal, purchased in Business through Star Alliance: (This fits the "under 29,000 miles restriction, comming in at 28,365 miles, calculated throug http://gc.kls2.com/):

Yeah I thought about going starting off eastbound and then going around but I think I'd like to visit Asia first then that way I can mellow out in Amsterdam, if ya know what I mean. If you're referring to flight times and jetlag as far as going eastbound first, the way I look at it, I make up the time lost as soon as I get back home.
How about adding additional requirement in routing -- itinerary has to include at least 1-2 stops on each continent!
My itinerary fits your new criteria as well.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

While we're all dreaming. On no particular airlines or alliance, and given I had much money and a year to do it....
BKK-SIN (probablyby land over a months time)
CUN-ATL (back home again)
NOw, if i could manage this trip, I would spend a few months in Europe bouncing around trains and so forth. Same in Australia and Asia. Its amazing how fast the time (and the money) can go when your seeiong the world. Maybe after i win the lotto. UNtil, dreams and on segment at a time.
