RTW Ticket...
So many people have been asking...so I finally decided to make a page dedicated to
where my 'Around the World' ticket is taking me. First of all, I decided to go through
the Star Alliance. This will put me on flights operated by airlines such as United,
Lufthansa, South African Airways, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, etc. My
travel agent weighed the options between the Star Alliance and the One World
alliance (American, British Airways, etc.) and thought the former would work the
best in my case.

While there are many other small flights I'll be taking to get to certain places, this
main ticket will take me to/from some of the major cities over the next year. The
Star Alliance RTW ticket is only good for 39,000 miles of travel. Therefore, I'm
going to need to fly to San Francisco after New Zealand and will then buy a separate
ticket to get to South America.
Below is the general itinerary of my RTW ticket. As of right now, these
are the dates. But with the type of ticket I have, the dates can change at
any time...

April 26th:                San Francisco to London
July 1st:                     Budapest to Cape Town, South Africa
August 9th:               Johannesburg, South Africa to New Delhi, India
