Flying Open Jaw

Has anyone had experience with flying open jaw with points? What is the extra fee or how is it caluculated?

I've flown open jaw several times (USAirways) and did not have to "pay" additional points...which program are you specifically talking about?

It should be no problem--just choose Sky Miles Award travel and then choose the Multi-City option.

With United's Mileage Plus, you can't book open-jaw award travel on-line, but you can do it on the phone with a representative. Good luck.

We've never had to pay a fee for open jaw with points. Since points are usually based upon places in the same continent, shouldn't be anything special in the calculation.

I have done it twice - once with US Air and once with Delta. Both times I had to call as I was trying to use them on codeshares. It was a $10 fee for the phone and $10 fee for multi-city.

hi joebear,

we have continental miles and using our miles for our upcoming wyoing/south dakota trip. we're flying open jaw to idaho then flying back from south dakota. there was no extra fee - all we had to do was set it up as multi city. we could've done it online but called instead.

good luck!

GOod news! I was able to get it worked out using points for all five tickets and flying open jaw. I did have to call delta agent but he was extremely nice and it worked out that we can all fly for just $124 a piece.
