    I need to go:

    London-Tokyo-Hawaii-Los Angeles-Atlanta-Toronto-NYC-London

    I have tried round-the-world fares, but these seem to cater for those whom;

    a)\tWant to stop in Aus/NZ
    b)\tHave more stops that what I need (as the US and Canada portion can be booked as a US Multi-stop section)

    Does anyone have any ideas how to go about getting the best fare? I have considered buying Tokyo return from London, and then throwing the return sector, and buying an rtw. from Tokyo, getting my N. American stops (and Hawaii) in it, and once I get back to London I can throw the rest of the sectors/ or use it another time in the future. Nevertheless, this seems like rater a waste; there must be a better option, yet now, this is the most cost effective solution.

    My only time constraint is that I need to be in Toronto between the 18-24 of August, all the other appointments are flexible in the beginning of August.

    Any ideas or opinions would be apriciated.

    EDIT: I want a Buisness Class ticket, and I would not mind driving from Toronto to NYC.

    The travel agents in UK are quoting me a fair of about 7,000 GBP, Buisness Class.

    If I do as I said above, and buy part of the ticket in London, and part in Tokyo, it will cost me 5,000 GBP.

    I will try those, as of yet I have only tried expedia UK, and the fare was stupid.

    Although I do think that Orbitz is for US residents only.

    Depends on how much time you need in each place. If each stop is really just a "stop" for a brief meeting, then you could accomplish this with simple routing. If on the other hand, you need to spend a night or more in each place, then it won't be so easy. Try www.flyertalk.com. Those guys over there are insanely adept at this stuff. Based on today's fares, however, I don't think you're doing too bad for a rtw itinerary. $5K for B is pretty darned good. A simple RT from Dallas to Italy right now is $1700 in COACH.

    5k pounds not dollars; that's about $9500
