    Typically, we would want (1) More EQM, (2) Lower price, (3) Stopovers for those with travel instinct.

    I am seeking the opinion of the masters here on how certain kind of fare rules can best be exploited for these purposes:

    (1) Stopovers permitted. OK, this one is obvious.

    (2) Add-on fares permitted. This allows us to add 3x and lower price. Anything else?

    (3) End-on-end. What is this good for?

    (4) Surface sectors permitted. What is this good for, besides seeing an extra city?

    Any other components of fare rules that are exceptionally useful?

    Don't think you will get any better answer here than was given on FT. Pretty sure there was an answer to a question just like this on the main thread on FT.
