JL availability can be searched on another OneWorld carrier like BA or QX. If JL makes seats available to BA, then that same inventory is almost always available to AA as well. There is unfortunately no direct way to search for JL inventory to AA, but searching for OneWorld inventory usually works.

Some people have pointed out that even using JL's own website to search for awards corresponds to AA inventory as well. I'm not a 100% sure on this because I've heard otherwise, but this is the method I used to book my last JL award redemption using AA miles.

And yes, you have to call to book the awards. Good luck finding what you're looking for!
