There is no fare ticket rule or "non qualifying itinerary" (whatever that means). Some agents just won't short check bags. At the destination you can always request your bag is offloaded and not loaded on to the next flight.

Of course, if you had a short layover then asking to short check a bag would raise questions.

No it isn't.

You do stay the saturday night in the ticketed destination, e.g. ABC-LON (stop over) LON-XYZ (sat night) XYZ-LON-ABC.

And I did say check if the fare allows stop overs. Some cheap ones will do, especially those sold in some markets.

Yep - when in Nice for new year's eve, I ALWAYS am able to enjoy new year breakfast on the balcony and/or a delicious first pizza of the year on a sunny terrace, and in December, you do get the bonus of some of the most exciting Christmas food around including truffles, foie gras, French xmas logs, Italian panettone and more! OK, I know where I am heading for as soon as I get a chance in December!

Indeed, in some markets, most cheap I fares allow a stopover in London in at least one direction and I wouldn't be surprised if the US was one of them, but this can of course also mean a significant increase in taxes because of the APD.

Hence why on a longhaul to shorthaul you would do it in the LONG to SHORT connection direction, rather than the other way around.

i.e. For ABC-LON-XYZ, if ABC-LON is long haul and LON-XYZ is shorthaul do:
ABC-LON (stop over and shorthaul dep taxes) LON-XYZ (sat night) XYZ-LON-ABC. Rather than stopping on the return.
