Best way to avoid yq on Emirates with Jal miles
« on: November 30, 2017, 07:15:52 AM »
So far the combinations I've been able to find departing from New Zealand, Australia, sri lanka, and the MALDIVES  do not have yq via ita.matrix. Also starting in the Maldives Roundtrip is no yq!

In addition it's been reported cheap or no yq from Hong Kong and Tokyo via Dubai to the US.

yes well JAL is only a bargain on RTs so starting out in MLE is not really an option

Ya ik, so you can always start in mle and take the way back just to Dubai and book a flight from there.

I wish I knew if you can do open jaw or multi city with jal.

According to tpg (no raya) and travel is free, all it says in a one way is: no transit via point or country of origin.

We have reviewed your letter concerning redemption of Starwood points through JAL Mileage Bank to book award travel on Emirates. 



Upon becoming aware last November that Emirates is applying a fuel surcharge to award travel, JAL promptly updated the Emirates fee information on its website and otherwise began advising our JAL Mileage Bank members of the surcharge.  We understand that you transferred Starwood points and/or made a booking through JAL on Emirates (without being ticketed) prior to the applicability of the fuel surcharge.  While JALís website and our agents advise that the fees applicable to award travel are subject to change, as a courtesy to you, our valued Mileage Bank member, JAL agrees to return the transferred miles back to Starwood points. You have advised that 160,000 miles were transferred. Upon verification, we found that 200,000 miles were transferred.



If you are in agreement, please kindly reply back with your acknowledgment and we will begin working with Starwood to achieve that result.



Thank you for being a JAL Mileage Bank member.

Of course.

I think there's a non-negligible chance they do not.
