Z1-Z2 with connection in Z2

I'm trying to get from HAM to BGO. But as LH only has the direct flight on weekends, its no help to me when I'm trying to go on a weekday.

The best connection times are unfortunately via CPH, or OSL. LH has 2 flights via FRA, but the morning connection is always full even on revenue tickets. The later flight is simply too late.

So am I correct to say that for a oneway Z1 to Z2 C+M is:
3000 miles + 35 Pounds, but for the connection, its an additional 2000 miles + 15 Pounds? Total coming to 5000 miles plus 50 Quid plus taxes? A return would therefore be 10000 miles plus 100 Pounds.

Gosh, I could have gone longhaul with this much miles. Its so irritating to have this stupid 'connection' charge. Most flights hub through major cities and there are simply no direct flights all the time.

Thx

In Miles, for a return :
Z1 - Z2 = 12,000
Connecting flight = 7,500
TOTAL 19,500

A one-way is half of this.

in Miles & Cash :
Z1 - Z2 = 6,000 + 70
Connecting flight = 4,500 + 30
TOTAL 10,500 + 100

One-way is half of each of these.

You strapped on an extra 500 miles there.

Outside of *A, there's also norwegian.no via OSL, for cash.

Ah, I took it from the FAQ which (incorrectly) says 4,500. Who wrote that rubbish then ?

Ya. It ain't cheap either. I'd rather burn my miles.

BGO is really one of these far flung places that time forgot!
