I notice there's a lot of talk of AA award tickets best used via AA distance award chart vs the normal OW partner & AA flight chart but I can not find information regarding this. There is something called OneWorld Explorer and its related award chart, but I do not believe this is the same as AA distance based reward is it? I thought OWE is a RTW type award ticket where one must travel over each ocean once w/maximum of 16 segments etc. Is this the same as the Distance Based Award or something different. I am a bit confused and would hope someone could shed some light on this. thx --- I saw this post by Lucky, but like i stated earlier I thought OWE was a RTW type ticket? If not then is there an award chart for the RTW OWE ticket? Or is that too based upon the distance based chart?
