Round The World With...?

Tue Jul 18, 2006 9:07 pm

Im thinking of taking a round-the-world trip in Business class,
I was inspired by the latest issue of 'Airways' where one chap from South America flies on each Oneworld carrier around the world.
I believe he also did the same trip on Star a couple of years earlier.

Any ideas which alliance would be the best to do this trip with ?
Im leaning toward OW but if anyone has any suggestions Id appreciate them.

Im trying to fly with the airlines with the nicest business class product.

Hope your all having a good day

it really depends on what destinations you want to cover and when you want to travel

South America

SA)">OW strong ( LA / SA)">AA )
Star weak ( RG on deathbed)

North America

Star strong ( AC /UA / US )
SA)">OW strong ( SA)">AA ) but with definite gaps in coverage


Star strong ( LH /LX / SK / BD / TP / OS / LO / OU / JP / KF )
SA)">OW not quite as strong ( BA / IB / AY with EI leaving and MA joining )


Star strong ( SQ / TG / OZ / NH with FM and CA joining )
SA)">OW a lot weaker ( currently only CX with JL to join ... and presumably KA now that CX are taking them over )


Star SA
SA)">OW BA franchise partner comair


SA)">OW dominate as QF offers the only alliance member domestic flights although
Star have a strong presence at gateway ports with NZ / SQ / SA)">UA / TG / OZ / OS all currently operating
