Hi, I am looking to book an itinerary in Jan-Feb from LAX - MLE with a stopover. I have researched ana website as well as united. I am coming up with 3 segments outbound and 5 outbound due to my stopover city. I have 2 questions. 1) I read somewhere that max segments is 4 + 4 = 8 in an itinerary. Anyone violate it making it 5. 2) My stopover is a non-star alliance hub city. anyone had any luck doing a stopover at a non star alliance hub city recently? My itinerary is nothing crazy. and I will be well within the allowed MPM limits.
