    Hello,

    Has anyone been able to book an additional flight leg when flying SFO-Europe-SFO? If so, what are the legal cities? I tried the search engine and get an error. I have in the past booked east NYC-PRG-NYC stopover-SFO.

    I would be ok paying some additional miles (to get to Mexico, back to caribean, or Hawaii). But I have tried all of these and the engine errors out.

    SFO-PRG-SFO then LAX (just to try something easy and close)
    SFO-PRG-SFO then HNL
    SFO-PRG-SFO then AUA
    SFO-PRG-SFO then CUN

    Am I doing something wrong, or is SFO basically a destination that cannot be added to?

    Thank you,

    Michael

    Stopover at origin often breaks things these days. Can you put the break somewhere other than SFO?

    I am able to create it if I go YOW-PRG-YOW wait a month SFO That doesn't break it. I tried YOW-PRG-YOW then CUN...2500 more miles, but works.

    I am wondering if it is because I got so far out west....I guess that's my question. Are these possible with West Coast cities. I tried asking an agent but you can imagine how that ended.

    Take what the website will give you. These days if you call anything in, the odds are the agents are looking to reduce your scope and won't assist you - even within the purview of their own rules, never mind beyond the intent.

    Don't like to accept the website. If I search SFO-PRG-HNL then this is allowable, and by the way the connection is in SFO to HNL....so it is just a stopover on the itinerary. It has to be allowable I think....and it does make a huge difference, 5K for the add on, vs what 35K for Hawaii from SFO (same as Europe).
