When booking RT ana allows 2 free each way. Now that they switched to region based, you can stick trailing flight to west coast for free
Thanks alot.

If you buy a round-trip on DL then there is no YQ

Correct,  But LHR-NYC by itself there will be YQ.

Would you rather fly direct or fly the best product with a connection?

Also, origin?

Least amount of miles would probably be on UA booked through NH at 88k RT.

Or you can fly AA for 100k RT. I see they're scheduled to fly the dreamliner DFW-EZE until the beginning of November.

Are you saying you'd redeem a standard award with a stop in SFO?
