For a trip with a stopover, the 3-region flight award is ideal. This allows you a stopover within the second region and you can even fit in a longer stay. In certain cases, you need significantly fewer award miles for this when compared with two standard flight awards.

Region 1 is the departure region (North America), Region 2 is the stopover region (Europe), and Region 3 is the destination region (Southeast Asia).
With the 3-region flight award, you save 40,000 miles in this example when compared with standard flight awards in Economy Class. You only spend 100,000 miles compared to 140,000 miles for two standard flight awards.
