JAL Promo for Flights within NA and SA

Now, the obvious comparison would be as against Avios.

But remember, that with JAL you get two stopovers, and the mileage is added cumulatively.

As an example:

Someone in NYC wanted to see some history in BOS for a few days, then continue on the next week for a trip to see the awesome airport in SXM (via CLT) for a few days, and then go to PHL for a wedding for a few days, and return to NYC.

So, NYC-BOS(stop)-CLT-SXM // SXM-PHL(stop)-LGA.



Total cost in Avios: 36.5K
Total cost in JAL: 16K

Interesting.
Does this apply to US flights that are codeshare with AA (ie. AA flights with US flight numbers?) or must it be on US metal?

Good question. My hunch is that it does not apply to codeshare.

So for those of us who are not well versed.. May I request some simplification for the simpleton that is I. I take points from MR , transfer to JAL, call JAL to book flights, where is the lucrativeness ? How could I book a family of 7 on this lets say from NY to SFO or PHX ? Would the US companion ticket be useful in any way ?

MR doesn't transfer to JL; only SPG.

US Companion would not be helpful.

An example of the lucrativeness is shown in the OP.

What specifically is your question?
