    All,
    trying to work with United agents (nice, but running into issues) with the following round-trip one stop over Itin:
    SFO-SEA-NRT (Stopover)-ZRH-TLV (Destination)-ZRH-NRT-SFO.

    This is round trip, not going over 2 oceans and only longer than few hour connection in NRT and TLV.

    What am I missing?

    btw - if i could TLV-FRA-SFO i would but was told this would be round the world ticket.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    You cannot do USA-Tel Aviv via Asia on a single award AFAIK.

    The agent calling it a RTW ticket may have been incorrect. I'm not certain if TLV is a permitted stopover between Japan and the USA but if it is then you simply have a round trip to Japan with a stopover.
