I am looking at booking flights to India from Australia using velocity points.
When I check MEL-AUH and AUH-MAA, the availability shows up individually on EY, but when I search MEL-MAA, the EY options dont show up. I cant do international multi-stop on the website. The same happens with QR on MEL-DOH-MAA.
What is strange on some days, it shows these married segments option in economy, but never see it on J.
So, I called up and they can do it. However, the pricing seems to be off.
From my understanding MEL-AUH-MAA is 9079 miles which should price at 121k miles.
However, they are doing them separately as MEL-AUH at 104k and AUH-MAA at 38k giving me 142k miles.
Is this correct? I thought if the flights were with the same carrier and the transit was less than 24 hours, it should price as one trip.
