As long as they are 2 separate flight numbers. If the same flight number usually get only 1 segment and MQM of the distance between origin and destination. If flying NYC - ATL - SNA on one flight number, usually only get MQM of NYC - SNA.

I can say that for SW this would not be the case. Which matters for that sweet, sweet companion pass

How do you connect flights with a single flight number...I've never had that happen on hundreds of flights?

D1 it just depends. Screwed up a mileage run a few years ago and I had to fly an extra segment

@D1 there are a lot of flights that are direct, but not non-stop. For instance, AC34... direct flight from YYZ to SYD, with a stop in YVR. Much more prevalent on USA carriers tho.

How long is too long before meeting an SO’s parents? We’ve been together a little over 2.5 years and I still haven’t met them. Part of it is because they’re in India and we’re in the US and covid travel bans won’t allow it, but they have suggested FaceTime and my SO refuses. I think he wants to make sure it goes well but given our trip was planned December 2020 and won’t happen anytime soon, shouldn’t I at least meet them virtually? Am I reading into it too much?
