Chicago. Direct isn't imp.  Looking for least amount of miles.
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.

Lax to EWR
I'm debating if I should go direct in economy with saver awards, or make a stop in SFO in business awards

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

I could do the math. My question is if lh looks at it like two separate bookings or one with two flights in it.

That. M&M is a region based program, not distance.
