Thank you. I follow now. But how can you do 2 OJs? (Forget the stopover for a second.) JFK-CDG (OJ) FRA-JFK. Where does the second OJ come in? (I understand AJK said book it as 2 OWs, but I still don't see how you could use 2 OJs.)

JFK-CDG then FRA-EWR.

That's not using 2 OJs, that's just booking 2 OW tickets to/from different cities...

Yea but if you book to one way tickets you wont get the free stopover. Book them together and you have two open jaws and now you can make a stopover.

Now I get it. So I can see this being fun, but not necessarily how it helps financially unless your goal was to start in JFK and end in LAX. Now you have to get your own ride from CDG-FRA and LAX-JFK.

Google would never have explained it to me as well as the guys here. I know what an OJ is. I couldn't picture how to get all those benefits one RT because I couldn't see how the trip could end anywhere but where you started. I would barely even call the above scenario a RT.

Last Q - does this only work when paying with UA miles or will it work if using partner miles?

Each mileage program has its own unique rules.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

OK, tried reading these responses but its not going into my head...

If I am booking:

JFK-WAW-TLV with LOT is 80,000 UA miles. The stop over is 8-10 hours or so... That is easy & simple...

What means a stopover? More than 24 hours? If yes then how can you get that for 80,000 as well?

On international awards, most airlines view any stop of up to 23:59 a "connection," while any stop 24:00 or longer is a "stopover."

On round-trip awards, UA allows a stopover.
