Subject: [RTWers] Re: RTW Air tickets
Here's a whole other way to go.  I recently discovered a site called
flyertalk.com.  They provide great helpful information about rtw
flights.  I am now looking into the One World Explorer ticket which
is very flexible and much cheaper if purchased out of Cairo,Egypt
directly through BA there.  Now that isn't going to suit everyone but
since I'm based in Israel it's fantastic.  It's much cheaper than me
having to get to London, and the ticket price itself, is also that
much cheaper. 

For those interested.  Check out flyertalk.com and go into the
oneworld forum.
