AsiaMiles Award Help
Complete novice poster. Wonder if anyone could help with some questions on asia miles oneworld multi-carrier award:
1) are surface sectors included in total mileage, i.e. if within my itinerary, I had LAX-JFK, then GIG-ZRH, would the distance between JFK & GIG be included in my total mileage to calculate my oneworld award zone?
2) using the above example, would the JFK-GIG surface sector be considered 1 or 2 stopovers?
3) can I the ultimate destination on my ticket be in a different country to the original origin?
Appreciate any help on this. I can’t get clarity from asiamiles terms & conditions on these questions.
