The ultra-cheap flights around the world are back!
You can currently book tickets from Rome to Singapore and one to Los Angeles (or Seattle or Newark, Salt Lake City) for just $338. There are many dates and options available.
To find dates, use ITA Matrix and search multi-leg FCO to SIN and SIN to LAX. Use the +/- 2 days option.
Mileage earning is a bit of a mystery in 2015 since Delta has been mum about partner earnings (tickets issued on Delta earn per spend not miles flown) so I would not be sure. The Etihad segment may earn miles with AAdvantage but SHOULD with Etihad Guest.
To get yourself to Europe, you can use a cheap one-way (like the recent New York City to Milan deal) or 20,000 AAdvantage miles until March 31st (30,000 after that).
If you are interested in taking a round the world ticket and seeing Asia and Europe on the cheap, don't wait as these deals only come around once a year (or twice this year) 🙂
I'm currently in the Seychelles and the internet is sloooow here, so please help others with your findings should you book and share dates and city pairs you found.
