    Hope someone can clarify this for me -
    Using AA miles I would like to book an award flight on Etihad in F from Johannesburg to the US via Abu Dhabi.
    I am confused whether this route can be done as one award or two separate awards? AA award chart shows 120,000 miles from Africa to the US in F. Would this routing qualify?
    Also - to slightly complicate things - Etihad does not have F cabin on JNB-Abu Dhabi leg; so the whole award will be charged as F while one leg will be in J - in this case, would it be better/cheaper to book as 2 separate awards?
