Adam and I have successfully converted a business trip to Japan into a
*cheaper* 'round-the-world tour (it's a loophole to promote United's
single-airline RTW service).


That's Boston to Washington, D.C. to Paris, then a day with Robert Harley on
the town in Paris. Then a connection Paris to London to New Delhi. In India, a
tour of Agra, Varanasi, and Delhi, then onto Hong Kong. One full day in Hong
Kong, then on to Tokyo for three days and Honolulu for one, stopping to meet
Ernie in Los Angeles and my family at Dulles... around the world in 10 days!
(Adam: 237 hrs, RK: 247)

Adam will be travelling the same route, but starting in LA.

Economy: 2570 (vs. 2800 to Japan alone)
Business: 3618 base (vs. 4500 to Japan alone) (this is us!)

Reservations RK: 5422PS AR: 5425D0

Unlimited stopovers, no more than 4 in the US and requires one in Europe.
Changes to day or time are OK. Change to route -- 1st reissue is OK, $35
add'l. Any segment can change date/time as long as stopovers don't change. $35
