Award Question: returning from a different place

When using MFU or a straight award is it possible to return from the start point from a different destination that you already set out from.

eg. LHR-LAX
SFO-LHR

dumbass question I just never usually sort out my own award travel

Naturally - one has people to sort out life's little details! Sorry, Fraser, but I'm afraid the DD to the Distressed Gentlefolk just got cancelled!

Awards can be issued as open-jaws, online you can just book two one ways as suggested (but that would be expensive as a MFU as it would price single fares to upgrade from), otherwise you need to call (shudder )..

I take it you're driving up Hwy 1?

One of the most beautiful drives ever!

Sorry LondonElite I was just using that as an example to explain the gobbledeygook in the lines above. It was more likely to be LHR-IAD and MIA-LHR. Though the ever changing situation means I will probably just fly back from IAD anyhow, sorry to .... everyone around!

Forgot to mention I did do Hwy 1 back in '91 from the back of a Lincoln Continental. Next time I vow to do it in an ragtop.

Anyone here from San Francisco or LA that has a spare DB7 Volante that needs some sea breeze through it?
