Time to complete a DONE4 - 12 months from ticketing or first flight?

Hi All,

I have the last leg of a DONE4 and I want to push the flight out. I can't work out if the ticket is valid 12 months from ticketing or from when the first flight commenced?

From the "permanent" rule sheet

7. MAXIMUM STAY
Return travel from the last stopover point must commence no later than 12 months after departure.
Happy wandering

how about this. Let say the first flight is Jan 4, 2019, the last stopover point has to start on Jan 3, 2020? but there can be multiple flights from the last stopover point and each transit can have up to 24 hours. so the last flight can be pushed to something like Jan 6 2020?

Unfortunately, that will be beyond NVA (Not Valid After) on the ticket and thus not permitted.

I mostly agree. What matters is how the ticket is written. For example, I think there are (or used to be) some AA flights which flew LHR (or maybe it was JFK)-LAX-HNL. It was one flight number, but with a change of planes at LAX. I don't think that that is considered a transit or connection for this purpose. I believe that it's the departure of last flight identified on the ticket that is the determining one. One flight number (and thus one coupon) counts as one flight even if there's an equipment change en route.

A flight from last stopover can be Jan 4th 2020, not Jan 3rd 2020.

We have discuused intensibly about 1 year/12 months validity in another thread.
For example,
If the first flight dearpts on 28th Feb 2019, the last flight can depart on 29th Feb 2020.
