If I do for example EWR to BOS 11:51 and arrive 12:58. Can I take the return 1:50 from bos? Do I have to leave the airport and go through security again or can I just go off the plane and go onto the line to board?

I've done it to MIA, no need to go out of security.
Although the turn around time is tight.

I need one more segment to reach my status for 2018. Whatís the shortest round trip flight from EWR?

AVP, BDL, PVD are the shortest distance.

If I do for example EWR to BOS 11:51 and arrive 12:58. Can I take the return 1:50 from bos? Do I have to leave the airport and go through security again or can I just go off the plane and go onto the line to board?

Completely doable.

Since when do they fly to AVP and BDL?
And PVD isn't as cheap as IAD or BOS.

Looks like both of those were on the EWR chopping block. Both routes existed within the last year.

If you take the next return flight itís usually the same airplane that you arrived in that will take you back so no issues with missing it.

Does a reward ticket count towards the minimum 4 segment requirement?

Quality of Airline which is better. I have flight EWR - Vienna - TLV on Austrian Air business class. I could change it to Lufthansa, is it worthwhile?

Vienna is a very small Airport pretty convenient for a stopover, nice lounge also

FRA/MUC are much bigger
Personally would stick with OS.

I flew Lufthansa B, I can attest @ 6' my  feet had almot no room to move when fully flat. From pics of Austrian B it looks like they are a bit more roomy.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

-1 If anything, OS is tighter.
