will this route qualify for an AA award ?

will this route qualify for an AA award ?

    I am looking at BOM – AUH – LHR – MEX. no stopover, just BOM to LHR on EY and LHR to MEX on BA. There is no direct flight to MEX from BOM and according to AA routing rules Europe can be used as a third region, not sure if this qualifies as a single award.

    [USER=959]@aaron[/USER] unfortunately the routing will price as two awards because you are transiting two separate regions (middle east and Europe) along the way and you are only allowed to transfer one. You could call and try but in my experience with AA I don’t think there is much of an option.

    So I am once again racking my brains on how to get to MEX using AA miles. So this time I am routing transpacific, so any idea if this route will qualify for a single award i.e BKK – NRT – LAX – MEX
    BKK – LAX on JL and LAX – MEX on AA. thanks.

    [USER=959]@aaron[/USER] — Actually, you should be okay with the first routing you proposed. Transiting Europe is allowed on awards between the Middle East and North America, and both Mumbai and Abu Dhabi are in the same region.

    The second routing should also price as a single award, so just depends on what you’d like to do! [URL][/URL]

    Thanks for the correction [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER], I forgot about AUH being in the same region!
