I don't believe so, but I also don't believe it would matter. When "cash" tickets are reissued for a new itinerary, the new itinerary is priced and the value of the unused ticket is applied to that new itinerary, with an add/collect collected (if needed). Even if you could keep award tickets like this, the same thing would likely occur in that the new award would be priced and additional miles would be collected if the new itinerary requires more miles.

I'm assuming the poster wants to do it to hedge against further miles devaluation and needing to use more miles for the same destination in the future.

---if a couple was dividing their assets, which included one having 7 figures in multiple airlines and hotels...at this point it's early in the game and I could rightly do a lot of flying, but the interest just isn't there at this point.
