Question regarding Mileage Calculation in RTW

If I have a flight, let's say EZE-GIG, RG 8613, which stops only for transit in GRU, but it is the same flight number and therefore one sector - how is the mileage calculated? EZE-GRU-GIG = 1268 miles according to Great Circle Mapper or just EZE-GIG = 1236 miles according to Great Circle Mapper?

I know it is not a big difference, but that might just be the hair that decides if my routing is "legal" or not...

Thanks for your help!

if only one flight coupon has to be issued, that the direct miles will apply.

Mileage calculations vary between different ticket issuing airlines. UA 'applies' airport to airport miles (Different New York airports: EWR, LGA, JFK will show different mileage calculations when booking with UA) - LH applies airport-city to airport-city miles (example: LH FRA-EWR and FRA-JFK show the same mileage with LH)
