How Many Miles For Around The World In F?

Tue Aug 15, 2006 11:55 pm

Every now and then I see people saying, or posting trip reports that they are cashing in miles to go on an around the world trip in first class. How many miles does this take? Most airlines require at least 100,000 miles to fly from the US to Australia, or Europe in First, so I can only imagine how many miles it would take to make it an around the world trip, with multiple stops.

I you wanted to go with Star alliance you could either have the miles on UA which is 400,000 for first class. Or you could buy the miles, which would be 8,000 dollars. That would allow you to fly first class on any star alliance airline around the world in First class!!

It not to bad of a Price really when you think about it as SQ, CX and other airlines normally charge sometimes 10,000 dollars for JUST a round trip ticket.

On the star alliance website you can download a "star alliance mileage calculator." I use it alot to plane out dream trips!! Wink

JFK-NRT-LHR-JFK (16170) doable for 180,000 AA miles.

330,000 for a 50K miles max 16-segment RTW in F with AAdvantage.
