Hi Ben. I have a question about AA routing rules. I am excited for an upcoming trip with Etihad from LHR-AUH-SYD. However, I cannot find a reasonable way home from SYD and am looking at other options. My thought is to fly the A380 LHR-AUH-LHR and forget about SYD. With an award ticket originating in Europe, will AA allow me to connect in AUH and continue on anywhere else? I donâ€™t want to spend 2 weeks in AUH and would prefer to head somewhere like SEZ, MRU, or Asia to hop a flight to DPS. Any insight on routing after the LHR-AUH leg?
@ Mark — On a single award you could indeed continue to somewhere else in the Middle East/India, though you couldn’t continue to Asia on the same award. That being said, one-way first class awards between the Middle East and Asia are quite reasonably priced, so they’re not a bad option. If you haven’t been to India, that’s one destination to consider.
