Geneva to Moscow starts at 9,500 miles, so booking these offers [8k for MOW-AMS, 3k for AMS-GVA] represents a 15% increase on the price you could otherwise get.

Remember now that all miles pricing is point-to-point, and connecting itineraries are cheaper than the sum of the corresponding direct itineraries. As such, I would be upset if the best I could do on such a routing was the higher price!

Promo Awards on shorthaul are now only really of interest for people originating in, or terminating at, either PAR or AMS. They are not really of interest for connecting pax.
