Mileage run? What's the point of the multiple r/t's?

He only needed LHR-JFK and NYC-IBZ for next week. That alone was $3100 as he needed a very specific flight.
I added an open jaw LHR-JFK and it dropped the price to $1400. Then I just kept going :)
Booked 3 flights for less than the price of one.

Amazing! Makes the $1900 in J LAX - FCO seem like a bad deal.

Their first time flying international business or first, first time to the far east, and first time to Israel since the mid-80s, longest amount of time my father has ever taken off of work...
Should be interesting if they survive all those flights.

Just the way the cookie crumbled.
Raison d'etre for the trip is a wedding in Israel, but flights are the tricky part with an inflexible schedule.
