Hi, can someone please shed some light in this fugal flying idea.

When you do this do you book your buisness flights to Guam and just get off at japan and do a runner? the fly to guam from japan and get back on the plane? or is there some sort of stopover you can do? i want to be in japan for 2 weeks 1/4 way through next year, so yeah any help on shedding light would be greatly appriciated.

Cheers

Using USDM can have one stopover in your case Japan, can also have up to 24 hours in other ports depending on when fights depart.

You profile does not say where you are located (best to show it), if in a capital city why go via Guam?.

If you are looking at an intra-zone award (Australia to Guam) for 30K miles, a stopover is not allowed anywhere on your itinerary.

For 90K miles, (Australia to North Asia) you could stop in Japan, but that defeats the purpose of 'doing a runner').

If you miss any flight segment -for example 'doing a runner' - the rest of your ticket will be cancelled.

You can do it if you book two return trips and technically do a runner on both.
But that would mean 60k points and an economy fare to Guam so almost not worth it.
