Stopovers on Award Flights ?

Hi All,

Flying CX First JFK -HKG on AAdvantage award, then going on to Shanghai 2 days later on CX Dragon, and I cannot connect quicker. Am I allowed a 2 day-stopover in Hong Kong or must I take two awards (or pay for HKG-PVG)?

Thanks all.

Two awards.

AAdvantage does not permit any stopovers on any of its currently-offered awards.

You can do this on an AS award but not AA.

In the good old days you could get a free stopover at NA gateway. Now, you are limited to the 24 hour connection time limit on international itineraries

Use BA Avios for HKG-PVG if you can; only 15k miles for J (and a very modest YQ of $20ish) compared to 22.5k.
