Segments/Routing, Mileage Run & Status Earning

Segments/Routing, Mileage Run & Status Earning

  1. Stav9678

    Hello All,

    I have posted maybe 3 questions on this blog so far, I’m very new to this and I try to keep up with the news on airlines, mileage plans, credit cards, etc. I don’t travel much but when I do I would like to take advantage of it and try to earn as much miles or segments that I can. I have seem posts of routing from LAX to ORD to DFW to MIA to JFK and so forth. How do you book a flight like this? Is it all one-way tickets from one destination to another? I don’t see really any stops more then 2 and if I choose a multi-stop itinerary it’s usually cost a few hundred dollars more then direct. I’m I not searching right, using the correct websites, etc?

    What is the best way to search or find multi-segment stops and book them? I live in the DFW area so that’s my home airport so if I was flying from DFW to LAX what’s the best way and cheapest way to do this while racking up the most miles and segments I can?

    Try the multi city tool on AA or Google Flights. Using AA’s multi city tool I think i priced out LAX-JFK-MIA-PTY for under $500 in business class

    I took a look at aa.com and went to Advanced Search and selected Multi-City but I have to put in each city manually is there a way it can search the from and to and gave me all options or flights from point A to point B? manually putting in cities it would take a lot of time and entering different cities to find the lowest or best price posible. I’ll try Google Flights but anyone know a quicker, easier simpler way?

    With the ITA Matrix (and therefore I assume Google Flights) you can list multiple possible destinations by just listing them in the destination box. (e.g. LAX, SAN, SFO)

    if I search using Google Flights can can you provide step by step, I tried what you was saying but something I clearly did not do right.

    Try a one-way search and put multiple destinations in the destination box. Now, that’s not going to have you zig-zagging all over the country but it will show you the cheapest fares to those cities. When you have one you like then you can try to find cheap fares from THAT city. There’s no magic bullet (that I’m aware of) that will build you a cheap multi-stop flight. It’s a lot of trial and error.
