Two things:

1. I'm pretty sure we want to post the details here, not a link to some other webpage.
2. I'm also pretty sure TWOV through China will not allow for this itinerary. Connecting inside of China before leaving for a third country is not allowed IIRC. Therefore, one would need a visa to fly this itinerary.

It would appear you are correct:

• Travelers making intermediate stops within China, even on the same flight number, are not eligible for 72-hour TWOV (the 24-hour TWOV rule is still valid). All major Chinese airlines have flights of this nature (e.g. CA via DLC/XMN/PVG/CTU, CZ via CAN/XMN, MU via KMG/PVG), so be sure to examine them before booking.

(pulled from wiki on http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/china...er-thread.html)

However, that begs the question.. with 25+ hours in the above screenshot. Is it valid without visa?

More info:

24-Hour TWOV

24 Hour TWOV: available in most cities except Fuzhou (FOC), Yanji (YNJ), and Shenzhen (SZX)(current exclusion as of 7 August 2016), and the only option if you have more than one stop or transit in China##

Note: passengers travelling on US and Canadian passports are not permitted to use the multiple-stop transit within China if transiting through Tianjin (TSN), Weihai (WEH), Wuhan (WUH), Xi'an (XIY) or Zhengzhou (CGO).

The 24 hour period is measured from your first scheduled arrival into China, until your last scheduled departure from China. This includes any transits or domestic flights you might undertake.

Note: special provisions apply to Urumqi (URC), where you are permitted to stay in transit for a maximum of 2 hours. You may then proceed to other transit points in China, for a maximum total stay in China of 24 hours (scheduled arrival at first port of entry, to final departure.

You should also read the section 'other important considerations' below.

Transit time in China is 29:30. Doesn't sound like it will work. You need a visa.

If that's Q on MU it earns 0% on AA.

Pretty much all Skyteam member airlines earn 0% on AA, regardless of fare class.

I'm going to assume he meant Delta, but if not this fare would earn 0% on Delta as well since Q fare class.

EDIT: Just looked up the itinerary on Orbitz and the SFO-PVG and PVG-SFO legs are in Q, but all the others are in B class so they will earn 150% MQM 20% MQD

A full day in Kunming can be pretty cool. The stone forest nearby is a nice sight as well as the city itself.

Just a random date picked for a week trip. Seems to work for longer stays as well.

Expedia says PVG-CCU is in B-class, which is 100% on DL/FB.
