    Hey Lucky,

    Just wondered if you could give me a rough estimate, from your experience, of how many miles it would take to do a around the world trip for two people in business class, starting west coast US on to Hawaii, New Zealand, couple stops in asia, middle east, europe and back again. Realize there can be many factors, but looking for a number to aim for as I plan a 10 year anniversary trip. :) Love love the blog...daily jealous reader :)

    @ Charles -- It would require many awards, so you're really just paying whatever the segment by segment amounts would be. Really can't give a good estimate there, but if you look at the award charts of the programs you may have miles with and where you want to go, you can get a better sense. If you want that many stops I think you're looking at 300,000+ miles per person in business class.
