What is travel (Stopover) and opening (Open Jaw)?
If you fly from New York to Tokyo in Tokyo to play a week after flying to Beijing, after spending three hours at the Beijing airport to fly to Shanghai in Shanghai one month later to fly back to New York, routes are as follows:
In this case, is a stay in Tokyo, but Beijing has not.Why?Because the standard travel is between before and after your flight is more than 24 hours, shorter than the 24-hour call transfer (Layover).In this case there is a Layover in Beijing.So you may ask, if I stayed in Beijing for 23 hours also count?Count!This we call long transit (Long Layover), does not take up places to stay in the mileage.
Then a stay how long can I stop it?Theory, how long do you want to stop as long as, but because a plane ticket to fly out in a year, so as a limit is one year.So take advantage of your stay, can we play a real place.
There is a special case, if your ticket is in United States territory, is transit more than 4 hours stay.
The example above is a standard round trip travel with no openings, so in theory can be several miles to swap out any of such a ticket: UA,ANA Air Canada, Asia Miles, Alaska Airlines mileage, Korean milestone, Lufthansa miles and Singapore air miles.(Of course, it is better for Star Alliance mileage)
So what is open?
Is your ride is flying from a to b, but return is flying back from c to a, which is an opening at the end.For example, here is an example (New York, Los Angeles, and then flew back to New York from San Francisco), painted like is a slightly open mouth:
Two openings then what is it?Is the following:
In this case, repeat after me: the end of the trip is not the beginning of the return, the return is not going at the end of the beginning.This is at the beginning and end of a mouth.Us default opening an object without special note at the beginning or at the end.
Open and travel can be combined, in 2015 the new ANA Mileage Exchange (1) in this article, I come up to an example:
Airline alliance in the article introduction to our example three out of the ticket:
Both tickets, we are in the end made an opening, respectively, in Singapore and Osaka had a residence.These are the standards of a mouth and a stay, we can not only use the ANA mileage out of the ticket, or UA mileage, you can also use Singapore Airlines ' mileage.
Have any readers know, what mileage can also be used on these two tickets out of it?Welcome saying your opinions in the comments.
