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?
You can't. It has to be a RT.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

Ok, now I am starting to understand... Just to verify....

If I book a RT mileage ticket for example:

JFK-WAW-TLV
TLV-WAW-JFK

I can stay in Warsaw (both ways?) for 24:00+?

Does it need to be called in or its doable on united.com?

Please clarify

Sheesh.

A round trip entitles you to ONE stopover, i.e. one stay over 24 hours in addition to your destination.

No, not two, not three... ONE.

Eg: JFK-WAW(stop)-TLV(dest)-WAW-JFK.

Ok, thanks for clarifying.. And the stop can be taken on either the outgoing or return.. correct?
What about the booking process? Available to do on united.com or only via phone?

Yes.

Can be done on either; but if it's complicated, you'll have to PUTPAC.

Don't forget that you're not limited to doing the stopover in Warsaw. Assuming the tickets are available, you can do the stopover elsewhere in Europe, N. America, and possibly other areas as well if you can get them to price it out.

I hate these redemption's. You get to sit on the EX-europe/TLV flight in couch.

Nice connection on the return, juts 1.5 hours. Much better than the routes on DDMS (although obviously he was trying to show LOT avail.)

Don't forget that you're not limited to doing the stopover in Warsaw. Assuming the tickets are available, you can do the stopover elsewhere in Europe, N. America, and possibly other areas as well if you can get them to price it out.
Can your stop be completely out of the way? Hypothetically...
JFK-WAW(connection)-ORD(stopover)-TLV-WAW-JFK?

Where do they draw the line?
Has to be the same region. Otherwise it might be more expensive. Some regions like Hawaii will still be a good deal.

-1. United OJ rules are very murky but they are definitely not region restricted.
