## My definition of a direct flight is correct. Unless they've changed long-standing rules recently, you would only get miles based on the great circle distance from A-C in the scenario I outlined above. Hence why I'm unsure whether you'd get two segments. I think you would, but I wouldn't put it past the airlines to say otherwise.

What do you mean by a "flight with two legs?"

One leg = direct flight. Anything more than one is indirect flight. In my case 2 flights or 2 legs. Thanks M1

If it is the same flight number throughout, I don't think it does. Hence my question.

OP, your statement is true, but the term "direct flight" <> "non stop flight." A direct flight includes the situation where you fly A-B-C all under the same flight number. Even if you change planes and crew at B.

Each time you get on a plane is an mqs

At least one segment per nonstop flight

One successful takeoff + one successful landing = 1 MQS regardless of if it is the same flight number or not.

Yeah, I hear OW1 only works locals
