    Unfortunately, AA explicitly forbids using HA to/from North America; or at best, forbids it when in combination with an international destination. See AA Award Chart (#1). See Discussion (#2).

    Otherwise, it would be particularly attractive to fly HNL-JFK (HA) , then much later JFK-AUH-MLE (EY). A business class o/w would be 67.5k for these two legs. This still appears possible using AA (and maybe AS), but with annoying routing/stops on the way to New York (or my final, real destination, WAS).

      As pointed out in this post (, AA now allows US-Hawaii award redemption on HA. Check this link on AA’s website:

      Now, as far as stopovers using HA are concerned, you can easily have a stopover in HNL enroute to Pacific or Asian destination as HNL can be treated as North American gateway on certain routes. And with the new HNL-JFK route starting next summer, JFK could also be a great stopover option enroute to SA, Europe, Middle East, Asia and India. However, please note that for any award itinerary to be valid as a single award, it is important there be a published fare between your origin and destination on the operating airline. A great example would be EY one that you have raised in your comment.

      Unfortunately, JFK-AUH-MLE on EY is not have a published fare or routing on EY. Same applies for ORD-AUH-MLE. However, you can book an award on YYZ-AUH-MLE route. Further, please note that for HNL-XXX-YYZ-AUH-MLE to work, your entire award including the stopover has to have a published routing. In this case, although YYZ-MLE is published, HNL-MLE is not and thus it will not be issued as a single North America-Middle East/Indian Subcontinent award.

      Hope this helps you. I would welcome your comments.

    Yes, definitely helpful. It raises a number of questions, perhaps for another post. The main crux is how and why are “published fares” produced? Feel free to answer any of the following: [1] I assume ExpertFlyer, “Fare Information Search” is the best way to see if a fare is published. True? [2] Are there any other ways? [3] Also, am I right to assume the “published fare” must be published by AA? [4] And toward the logic behind the system, does a “published by AA” fare imply a codeshared AA flight number; and [5] vice versa, that an AA flight number means I should be able to find a published fare? [6] Are you saying that while ORD-AUH-MLE is permitted, only ORD-AUH is codeshared AA; [7] and that AUH-MLE is EY; and [8] therefore, even that is unlikely to change to price as a single reward? [9] Or, only that it’s just unlikely to work using a designed stopover, because a published fare is unlikely to be between two end points that AA is not directly serving? [10] Amd If that is the case, how does the AA Award work on segments in regions where only non-AA carriers are present (e.g., MLE-AUH-ICN). [11] Does the published-fare-rule-must-exist stipulation only apply when it is AA + another carier?
