First Class Round the World for 3800 Dollar - Economy
Now, I hesitate a little to publicize this tip on how to really get cheap flights in first class traffic. However, the information is available in another forums, and since the audience in that forums is currently minimum, the following may be a small rewards for the old members still hang around.
I' m mainly interested in the multi-continental Oneworld Explorer airline ticketing of the Oneworld airline alliances, including Qantas, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, American and some others. Up to 16 flights over several different geographical areas can be operated with this ticketing system. However, the purchase of the fare and the start of your New Zealand journey in New Zealand will cost only about $3150 + tax and fee.
Well, it's simply that the least expensive place in the world to start an Oneworld Explorer first class pass is from Sudan with SGD 20,400. Lately, the value of the Sudanesian Pounds has just gone down, so the value of the tickets is only about $4,500 (+ tax and fees). When you try to make this reservation through a tour operator, you will only be told the Australia rate as you are in Australia - that is $18,584 + tax and surcharges.
Anticompetitive conduct has been found by the Canada judiciary and the original fare should therefore be available if you purchase the tickets at a Canada based agency. What matters is that I just bought such a fare at the beginning of this year. Somehow the fare was even cheaper:
3780 for the basic rate + $1300 in tax and pay. Here you can find all about how to do this in this forum: In order to prevent the annoyance (and danger?) of entry into Sudan, I plan to start with flying to Dubai on frequently flier points and then take a cheap Flydubai local service to Khartoum for about $150 per leg.
Arriving in Khartoum at 23:55, less than 6 hrs before the first round-the-world round-the-world round-the-clock mission, a King Jordan ian departure at 5:25. It will be my third journey around the world, where I will start in a low-wage nation - but for the first times in first class.
Tonga (no longer available) and the Philippines were the two former starters. So the Philippines are no longer such a cheap place to buy the tickets. However, please find more information in the Flyertalk Forums.
