    I pulled this up on a US-Turkey fare on TK:

    I'm not seeing the distinction between an end-on-end and a side trip.

    After doing some further research I'm moving toward understand the difference between a side trip and end-on-end ticketing.

    What I'm fuzzy on is this scenario:

    US-IST-XXX(destination)-IST(stopover)-US, where XXX is a domestic Turkey destination.

    If during the stopover in IST a r/t is flown IST-YYY-IST, where YYY is an international destination, would this be considered a side trip?

    I once had a ticket on UA to do CDG-FRA-IAD, with a stopover in FRA during which I did FRA-PRG-FRA on LH, spending 5 days in PRG, and it was perfectly legit because this was on separate PNRs, I think.

    Bump. I would like to know the answer to this, too.

    Also, does anyone know a good resource for interpreting fare rules in general? (What the hell does travel must be through the point of combination mean?)
