I've heard that UA allows award tickets to be 15% over MPM and that that opened up routing options like US-Europe-Asia or US-Asia-Australia. I'm trying to figure out how that works for SFO-HKG. Direct = 13,854 rt Thru FRA = 22,796 rt -- 65% more mileage Mileage is from MileCalc. So my question is how do you get to Asia thru Europe on miles? I just can't see it, though would love to do it.
