AA Award US-Asia transit in Canada?
Is transiting in Canada allow for AA award between US and Asia? For example, are CLT-YYZ-HKG and SEA-YVR-NRT valid routings?
Hi there, Canada and the United States are in the same region so that would be fine.

Different countries in the same region might not work in some cases. I have this routing from North America-SYD [JFK-YYR-SEA-LAX-SYD] where they would charge separately [JFK-YYR + YYR-SEA-LAX-SYD] just because I fly out of the state and come back in. Not sure if that is just me not fighting the rate or there is an actual rule for US specifically.
[USER=310]@Wesley C[/USER] — That’s likely because of cabotage laws. You’re not allowed to fly between two cities in the US via another country, so it would have to be two tickets, and thus two awards. If you were leaving from YYR it would be one award.
