You can book it on one PNR. But it will be priced as two tickets.

Call, if they can't see the space then try a different country's call center.

Over 24 hour connection, yes.

But the issue with MLE is in AA's routing rules that don't allow routing via a 3'rd region (i.e. NA>ME>Asia).

24 hour connection or 24 hours total travel time?

You can't have any single connection that is longer than 24 hrs, total travel time can be as long as you want, assuming you follow all the routing rules.

Sorry for the n00b questions. So even when I can pull up JFK>AUH>MEL on Etihad on one award when I call AA I will be charged two award tickets?

Correct, but that's because, for the most part, AA doesn't let you route through a second region en route to a third.
