They usually dont show.

ETA: Showing up on mobile now as well. This might be a good sign. Hopefully it isn't a one night or one day thing

What does Dan mean by: "You are allowed to stay up to 24 hours as a connection, plus stay as long as you want as a stopover in addition to the destination you’re trying to reach on an award ticket"

I am not clear what this means, anyone mind clarifying?

He's explaining the difference between a connection and a stopover...

What don't you understand?

Trying to figure that out too. I know UA allows a free connection (which means under 24 hours) which is why it costs the same to fly JFK-WAW-TLV as it does to go direct JFK-TLV. (Obviously you think why on the world should it cost more to have to take a stop, but technically you are flying to a new place so you have to think of it as a nice thing that the connection is free. But anyway...) where does the stopover come into play? Can you take a stopover on each direction or only once per trip?

Ie can you do this?
JFK-WAW-ZRH-TLV and
TLV-WAW-ATH-JFK

You're allowed one stopover on a round trip award, and two open jaws (as UA awards are bookable as one ways).

So, you can stay in WAW for 23:59 as a connection, or use up your stopover and stay for days/weeks/months.

1) The 2 OJs are TLV at one end and JFK at the other?

2) Gotcha. But can you do WAW as a connection and then also go a new city as a stopover?
JFK-WAW(connection)-ZRH(stopover)-TLV-WAW-JFK?

JFK-WAW(connection)-ZRH(stopover)-TLV-WAW-JFK?

1)No a open jaw is flying into one city leaving from another, i.e., JFK-LHR(Stopover)-CDG(Open jaw) return FRA-JFK. It is kind of like two one way tickets (to/from different cities) to book them together so you can have a stopover
2) Yes, that would work.

Im not holding my breath .... They were displaying SN for a short while as well and now they aren't. Might just be some kind of glitch.

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.)
