    I thought I had a pretty good understanding of UA stopover/Open Jaw policy and thought that this work out okay; but UA.com seems to be giving me a fit and and says its not working. Anyone care to clarify where my logic is a fail?

    LAX - BER; VIE - KRK; KRK - LAX. That to me is 1 stopover & 1 open jaw.
    I then tried
    LAX - VIE; VIE - KRK; BER - LAX and that too wouldn't work.
    then I was like maybe because of BER not being open and what not so I tried this.
    LAX - PRG; PRG - VIE; KRK - LAX.... also didn't work.

    Did it not work online or with an agent? All three routings are fine; it sounds like the website is simply being its usual ornery self.

    Website didn't work. I didn't call in. This trip isn't until end of next year or early 2014.

    I just like to plan early.

    It's a legitimate reservation so it should price and ticket without issues. Sometimes the website is a bit wobbly-bonkers so you might have to call in for this one.

    I wonder if the site is rejecting the routing because UA hasn't opened the schedule that far ahead (I think they sell flights up to 330 days out).

    Thought that was the case so I threw in next month. Still no dice.

    I'd search each segment by itself and see if there is the availability you want. Write down the flight numbers and call it in. The agent should be able to price it with no issues.

    I've had trouble in the past with a reward to KRK. There are limited flights and if UA.com cannot find availability, it chokes at times.
