Dear all, My partner & I are planning and saving for award travel from London to Melbourne in December 2012. I have "enough" miles in American, and he has enough in Qantas, so we were hoping to build an itinerary that we could request from our respective programs. Given that we have to stop in Asia each way, we were hoping to take advantage of free stopovers, ideally Tokyo or Bangkok on the outbound and Hong Kong on the return. Using the OW planning tool, there are many routing options (encouraging!), but we're not sure if there are limits to the number of stopovers when applying mileage redemption. Is there an easy way to determine this? Also, I know that many FF-ers favor using miles for premium cabins. We'd love to do that, but our concern is that tickets to Australia in their summer will run £1700+ each, which should be much below the applicable taxes and fees. Is this a fair analysis? Thanks!
