Sure, simplest option is to just book two one-ways. Or if you want it all on one PNR then I believe you can book using their “multi-destination award”

The one way price looked to be the same as round trip.
I didn’t see a multi choice.  I’ll look again.

Is there a way to get UA status benefits when flying Copa when booking through Copa?

Significantly cheaper to book on Copa then through UA.

Depends on airport.
Generally if it's one ticket, then it should be fine

If I see EY availability on AC why when I call AA they tell me that the date is unavailable and only other dates are available? Do I need to Huca? Is it possible to only have availability on AC and not AA?

Maybe try to call and say you couldn't reach them in time because of the long wait times?

Someone's coming from MIA to NYC for a bris on Wednesday.
Because Monday is July 4th, I'm wondering if there's a best day to fly.
Which days will have more flights, so busier airports and more likely to have delays and cancellations?
I'd book her on a different day.

Booked an international flight (US-Israel) with Delta thru Chase UR. I mistakenly only put my wife's middle initial on her ticket thinking her passport only had the initial (so i.e M for Miriam). Will this be an issue? If yes; can I easily change it? Anything on the phone takes forever these days! Called Chase, I need to await a callback..........

Shouldn’t be an issue at all

They always warn that the travelers info on the ticket must exactly match the passport, no?

Middle names aren't an issue. Talking from experience.
You might have issues with TSA Pre or global entry but I don't think you will.

I never put my middle name on tickets, and never had issue with precheck

How long before the 11:50 Elal flight on Motzei Shabbos from EWR do I have to be there? Is it possible to make it from Lakewood with Shabbos ending 9:10? Economy with checked bags.
