    I am planning to travel ORD-IST-JED(6 days stopover)-BOM (destination) and 6days later, return BOM-JED-IST-ORD.
    I will prefer if I can directly fly BOM-IST-ORD in return, but I am not sure if it will be legal.
    I think my planned stopover in JED will not be allowed because it is not a star-alliance hub.
    I have 120k miles each in UA and USair. I am hoping to get 2 return biz tickets for the above trip in Turkish airlines. IST is hub for star member Turkish airlines, so most probably I will have to make stopover in IST.
    But, I have to stay in JED for 6 days. How can I do that in given miles?

    I need your feedback and suggestion to make this trip happen in real.
    Please let me know if the above mentioned travel plan is feasible with given miles and airlines policy?
    Also, I have USairways credit card, if that matters for anything in award booking. I know it can get me 5000 discount on booking but only when I book on USairways.

    I don't want to do following but may be I have to

    ORD-IST-(6days stopover)-BOM (destination) and BOM-IST-ORD.
    then buy separate return ticket for IST-JED during 6days stopover in IST.
