    It seems that with the new segment pricing, you could price a RTW by pricing out each segment that you want to do.

    I have yet to read about a OW RTW anywhere on the site.

    Actually I dug a little bit into the site and found this chart for 2+ partners:

    This is the link: http://www.britishairways.com/travel/ba6.jsp/multi-carrier-avios-costs/public/en_gb

    Keep in mind that the "one connection" clause only works for BA flights. They are rather unclear about that on several pages.

    Sample routing: LAX-LHR-HKG-SYD-LAX is 360K in F w/ BA, CX, QF. Separately, that is 75K + 90K + 75K + 150K = 390K.

    LAX-HKG-SYD-LAX on CX and QF is 300K in F. Separately that is 105K + 75K + 150K = 340K.

    So whereas you would want to avoid 2+ partners under the old rules, doing so here might actually save some miles.
