The long way home….

Shortly after this post drops my flight to Houston and then Los Angeles should take off from Buenos Aires. It means that on Wednesday I will be back in LA, the place I started from last Saturday. Since then I have been to Cabo, New York (Twice) and Argentina. Trip Reports to come of course.

However, the way home is going to be interesting and has been constructed to use the good fares on Cathay Pacific from Male to the USA. This gives you an idea of the routing back to London:


It features some repeated experiences – London to Amman with BA. Some new experiences – a short side trip to avoid the UK taxes to somewhere I have never been before – Luxembourg and a Qatar Airways A320 plane for 4 hours from Doha to Male. I have a nice long stopover in Hong Kong in order to enjoy their lounges before a 15 hour trip to New York and then 7 hours to London, and home after 2 weeks away. 2 miles shy of 26,000 miles.

Everything is on OneWorld – American, British Airways, Royal Jordanian, Qatar, Cathay Pacific! Using a mixture of Avios, American Miles and the odd revenue ticket.

Keep your eyes posted for the mad Englishman!


  1. I was in Luxembourg a few months back – very nice place for a weekend trip. Stayed at the Doubletree – free collection/drop-off from the airport and good breakfast spread 🙂
