Adding a Free Domestic Roundtrip to an American International Award

In the discussion of American’s new one-way awards with stopovers permitted in international gateway cities, a Flyertalk member pointed out that members living in gateway cities can book themselves a free domestic roundtrip when booking an international roundtrip.

If you live in New York and are booking a roundtrip to Tokyo, why not also book yourself a trip to Miami as well?

From the Flyertalk post:

Here’s what I was thinking of doing:
Newark – Jackson Hole ($219 in Y / Purchased Ticket)
[Stop]
Jackson Hole – Newark (F Award Ticket #1)
[Stop]
New York – Hong Kong (F Award Ticket #1)
[Stop]
Hong Kong – New York (F Award Ticket #2)
[Stop]
New York (LaGuardia) – Eagle, CO (F Award Ticket #2)
[Stop]
Eagle, CO – New York ($219 in Y / Purchased Ticket)
