Is this itinerary valid for reward travel? Open jaw + stopover

I am trying to find availability for the following reward travel itinerary online:
outbound: OKC-OTP
inbound: BUD-PIT(3 day stopover)-OKC

However, I receive the following error:

Code:
! We could not process your request. Please see the message below and make revisions.

! Itinerary not valid for Reward Travel; see rules regarding Open-jaw Travel.
But, when I click on the link, I get this:

Code:
# OPEN JAW: One open jaw permitted.
# STOPOVER: One stopover is permitted, unless otherwise noted. Additional mileage may be required for SaverPass rewards within the Mainland U.S., Alaska and Canada.
So, I thought that my itinerary would work, as it has one open jaw, and one stopover in PIT. Am I wrong?

Yes, it is valid. CO.com still cannot handle stopover itineraries. Find the inventory you need and call it in.

Your itinerary should be fine, you just won't be able to book it online more than likely and will have to call in.

Thanks. Well, it looks I'll have to call anyway, as LH availability does not show up online

The ANA site is your friend, with the appropriate workarounds, of course.

Great! thanks for this info to call in, I thought based on online error message that we were not going to be able to get rewards for a similar stop over and open jaw

Always so much good help from this community
