Unicon X - Update of air fare and Tibet tour

Here is some new information about Unicon X.

Updated flight prices from China Air: I have just received more information on
China Air prices good through the end of June (there is savings up to $150 from
the other prices). New York–Beijing–New York: USD865
Frankfurt–Beijing–Frankfurt: USD817 Los Angeles–Beijing–Los Angeles: USD700
London–Beijing–London: USD817
Note: While San Francisco is not shown, I would expect it to be the same price
as the Los Angeles fare.
Note: There are group rates available.

Tibet Tour: There is another tour available for Tibet. A minimum of ten people
is needed. Already there are two confirmed people going (Dana Schneider and Andy
Cotter). If your interested let me know as a few more details need to be worked
out. Itinerary of Tibet (August 11 to August 16) Day 1 Beijing fly to Chengdu

Good prices. And they are good up to June. The other seem to change from
day to day.

I wonder if SportsTravel can put a footnote so that we will be allowed to send
our sport equipment without any extra charge (within limits).

The UK price is still over $200 higher than the prices we are booking and is
over $150 higher than I have paid including 2 internal flights. 4 of us so far
have booked with (Scandinavian Airlines) Heathrow - Beijing via Copenhagen £391

  • £27.30 Tax. Travelling on 30th July. If there are any UK unicyclists who have
    not had the details and would like them I will pass them on.

Weight is a problem though, 20kg limit so bringing Cokers is going to be hard.
(but not impossible).

Wow. At those prices we would have over 50 persons from Puerto Rico.
