    Hey Lucky,

    I need to fly to London and want to avoid the fuel surcharges. I was thinking of flying to Europe, then flying to London. I'm just wondering if it would be possible to book something like this on a one way award travel ticket?, eg Lufthansa NYC to MuC, spend 3 days in Munich, then fly to London. Then Coming back Fly from London to somwhere, spend 3 days then back to the US?

    Are these stop overs still allowed anywhere? Would I have to call them up to do it, would it get me out of fuel surcharges?

    @ Paul -- Which miles are you trying to redeem? To clarify, fuel surcharges have nothing to do with London. There's a UK Air Passenger Duty, but that's the only thing directly related to flying to/from the UK:
