This coming Sept./Oct. I have to go both to Germany and to Bangkok. I could do 2 separate trips but I thought it might be more fun to combine the 2 trips and do a RTW routing from my home airport of SFO.
I already checked the Star Alliance and One World web sites and played around with different routings but so far the estimated price came out to more than US $4000 even for simple RTW routings starting and ending at SFO and involving at least BKK and MUC or FRA. If I booked the 2 trips separately I get do so for way less than $3000.
Why would a RTW combination be so expensive? I expected it to be cheaper than doing 2 separate r/t. Are there any good T/As out there that I can contact for my RTW trip? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
