Hi,

I'm in the process of doing a RTW DONE4 in June. I need 760 SC's by June 30 to reach QF Platinum and my QF Gold status re-assessment isn't until June, 2008
I need to be in MCO from June 7-14 for a conference and after that I want to visit FRA, GVA, HKG, BKK and CNS before returning to MEL by June 25. Having read a lot of the SC maximising questions and using the Mileage Monkey I can get at least 1000 SC's but I have a couple of questions:

MCO to FRA? - I have the option on AA of a 777 or a 763, which is better?

Or is BA a better option in J even thought its via LHR which I hear is not the best transfer airport.
Also, I'm confused about the SC earnings on the transatlantic flight, do I earn more on AA than on BA?

Thanks
Brumm

Doing a DONE4 and want SC's; Forget BA (at least while in NA) and use your 6 NA segment to fly F on 2 class domestic AA routes. (I did LAX-DFW-SEA-DFW-ANC-DFW-JFK for 780SC's.) I'm sure you could fit Orlando into a similar routing.

For more help about getting to Europe, I suggest to ask the knowledgeable oneworlders over on FlyerTalk.

Not sure if its still relevent but the 777 would be better than the 763 i think. Unless you really like the 767's for some reason, neither is bad but the 777 is very likely to be newer.
