How many segments on a one way TK award?
Hi, I have been looking to book an award on TK Miles&Smiles, from Asia to Europe in J.
On the TK award chart this costs 45000 miles, this is a one way award and I was wondering how many segments/flights I can add to a one way award and if backtracking is allowed.
I already sent some emails to some TK sales offices and they confirmed it is possible to mix carriers (even though some websites state that it is impossible)
In other words: I want to maximize the amount of flights/time in the air for the least amount of miles.
I’m not staying at any airport more than 24 hours so it should not qualify as a stopover.
I found some award availability on United.com and[B] I was wondering if this itinerary would be ticketable at TK for 45k miles:[/B]
This one from NRT to AMS via KUL and IST on NH and TK, i’m not staying at any airport more than 24 hours so it should not qualify as a stopover.
Second one is from KUL to AMS via TPE and VIE on BR, ET and OS:
I hope you guys can help me!
