JAL doesn't have access to the same saver inventory?

It's the DXB-MLE that can be a challenge.

Anyone have experience with JAL? Stopover policy? Mixed-cabin award policy?
I know someone that transfered SPG to JAL, he told me it was a big PITA.

Took over 3 weeks.

I'm getting the sense that EK F is the hardest possible way to get to the Maldives F...

Booking is a secondary issue.

First come up with 250K SPG :P

I believe both book into Z.

Again, both book into Z and FT seems to report the same.

Also, FTers report 100% match on what's available to EK is available to JL.

SQ, LH book with Krisflyer and M&M O class yet it's unavailable for partners who also use O for F awards.

Anyone have experience with JAL? Stopover policy? Mixed-cabin award policy?

I'm just looking for a clear path so I can pick the right cards and start the build.  Would really appreciate it if ya'll could help me to build out this following list:
Option 1
Airline: EK F via JAL
Points building method: SPW
~ Pts requirement: 130,000 pts/person via JAL

Option 2
Airline: SQ F via United:
Points building method: SPW + AMEX + United Explorer Points
~ Pts requirement: 150,000 pts/person via UA

Option 3
Airline: Etihad F via AA
Points building method: SPW + AA points
~ Pts requirement: 180,000 pts/person via AA

SQ does not release long haul F seats to United.

1. You need 125K SPG or 155,000 JL miles per person.

2. You cannot book SQ F via UA. Only way to do it is via SQ Krisflyer. Thus, you need AMEX MR. You can check on exact cost. (Note: Very hard to find 2 Saver awards in F on the A380, so you may consider flying their 777.)

3. Correct. Also, lots of availability last I checked.

Nice find.

But I was referring to their JFK-FRA-SIN route.
