Most Exotic Places Alliance Networks Reach

Tue Jan 18, 2005 8:51 pm

Looking at some of the alliance timetables (Star, Oneworld, Skyteam), I noticed how far your FFP miles can carry you on the network of your airlines' alliance network. Before I get flamed: what I mean by "exotic" in this context are places that don't see many flights at all, or that don't have many international connections, and are basically beyond airlines' or anyone else's beaten path.

Examples:

Star Alliance: Yuyhno-Sakhalinsk on Sakhalin Island in Far Eastern Russia (Asiana), Boa Vista in the Amazon Jungle (Varig)

Oneworld: Falkland Islands, Easter Island (both LAN)

Skyteam: Ulan Batoor (Korean), Antananarivo/Madagascar (Air France)


Any others you can think of? Which are the far flung corners of alliances' networks?

oneworld goes to Easter Island, one of the most isolated places on earth. I may try to use the AA connection to get there someday!

Oneworld: HKG-CEB on Cathay Pacific

Cebu is actually not a real exotic place, it is a huge town frequented by tourists from all over the world. I had a nice holiday there last year.

Oneworld: Falkland Islands, Easter Island (both LAN)

I agree with that, the Lan flight to Easter Islands which continues to Tahiti is quite interesting and would be a great addition to my logbook  Big thumbs up.

Currently I am planning a trip on Continental, their so called "Island Hopper" is flying from Honolulu to Guam with five stops on various Pacific islands which are Majuro, Kwajalein, Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Truk. But a LA flight from FRA via MAD, SCL, and IPC to PPT looks also very interesting, well I have to decide between these trips, not easy  Big thumbs up.
