Thank you Dave. After our landing at KSFO, the flight crew and attendants broke out the little champagne bottles for a toast. Oh, and this took place at the Intercontinental San Francisco, not anywhere near the gate.

Nice, Dave! Only three flights and the harder way of westbound. Is it possible to make it in two, based on the current flight schedule?

Thank you Dave and Marty. I think three is the minimum number of flights with the current schedule to make the round-the-world trip.
