With a US Airways Round the World First Class redemption completed in a single week, I finally felt like a real #AVGeek. (Not to mention I’d done it with various HUCAs using only 100k miles and paying no fuel surcharges for BA First Class!) This is not the kind of thing that normal people do. Thankfully, we’re not normal people.

Still, I’ve never been one to rest on my laurels. The overwhelming feeling in situations such as these is that there’s always more that you can do, something else to push the envelope a little further.

Nobody leaves their mark on the World by simply following in the footsteps of others. I’m not the first person to do a Round the World trip in a week. Hell some people even do them in less than two days.
So, I had another trip planned, a trip which would begin three days after my return from the First Class Round the World.

My plan was to maintain my body clock on Asian time, whilst living and working in London. I would be visiting the gym at 4am and getting to sleep by 7pm (work permitting).

Having completed my RTW I was going to fly back to Asia, to see my girlfriend Kamara and her family in Shanghai. Kamara had stayed in Asia and would finish her RTW by flying home to London a couple of days after me.
Throughout the course of this extravagant long-weekend I’d be trying Singapore Airlines for the first, second, third and fourth time.
Not only would I be flying SQ four times but I was planning on sampling as many of their products as possible:

The First and Suites flights were booked with SQ miles earned via Amex Platinum and Gold cards. (Total for both flights: 85k miles + taxes)

The Business Class flights were booked with Avianca miles using tricks no longer available. (Total for both flights: 45k miles + taxes)
