With 1,000 destinations to choose from, globetrotters can take advantage of a 10% discount off SkyTeam’s lowest economy class Round the World fare. The promotion is valid on tickets of up to 26,000 miles purchased from 1 February until 31 March 2013. Tickets must be purchased seven days in advance of travel.
