For $50M it's quite an investment. Though once you buy no need to worry about points availability anymore..

Where'd you see $50m?

It has the price in CHF which seems to be Swiss money

It's 1.02 to the dollar. For all intensive purposes you can take that amount as is.

Does TN open J space as the flight gets closer or is it pretty much static?

Seems static from what I'm seeing but just checking if anyone has experienced anything more optimistic...

IME space is pretty much static and decreases as seats are sold, no changes when flights gets closer (I do remember reading somewhere the space is not actively managed)

Yeah that's what Lucky says- hmmm

Only 1 seat in J PPT-LAX ...so either switch off taking turns sleeping in J...or suffer both in Y

If it was a daytime flight I'd care more about sitting together but overnight I'm tempted to go J/Y split (no AF J either).

Thoughts?

Was J totally full for you?

Wondering if the J cabin usually fills with upgrades or if there are a few empty seats (not for coming up from Y, but for a lap infant car seat)
