What's the issue? The RTW routing?

Is it better to book first and then change to more complicated routing? What are the change fees like?

I believe Aeroplan allows Australia-Europe via the USA, so FRA can be your destination and NYC the stop.

Good to know, but I have to avoid AC YQ carriers...

Do I need the *G card when I check in in order to get the 3x70 suitcases on UA?  Or if its on my reservation its enough?
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

If things work properly, it will be on the reservation.

LH once asked me for it, and I believe OS doesn't really have the ability to "see" it

Yeah, but the question was about UA. The others don't even give 3x70.

I got star alliance gold from Turkish air, and I'm flying Swiss JFK-GVA-TLV (2nd leg is operated by Elal)
What benefits do I get (particularly baggage wise)?
