However, LAX does not seem to work and that is sadly a dealbreaker, atleast for me.
If anyone manage to pull up JFK-LAX-MIA-GYE R/T. Please shout it out!
Won't happen. AA does a lot of this, copying and pasting of parts of their routing rules from other fares. Just because a stopover is allowed in LAX, doesn't mean it can be routed through LAX .

This is an MPM fare, with MPM as follows:
/WITHIN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE/ MPM 3588
MILEAGE SYSTEM APPLIES BETWEEN ORIGIN AND DESTINATION
MILEAGE SYSTEM APPLIES ORIGIN TO DESTINATION
TICKETED POINT DEDUCTION OF 800 MILES APPLIES
WHEN TRAVEL IS VIA CHI AND/OR MIA AND/OR DFW

Since JFK-LAX is 2475 miles, LAX-MIA is 2342, and MIA-GYE is another 1922, routing via LAX would go way beyond MPM.
