Issue Resolved: Issues seeing JAL redemptions on Alaska Search?
Im looking for NRT-US award search availability on Alaska and I cant find anything at all. Looked at NRT-other airport searches as well and it looks like JAL's inventory is not searchable on Alaska. Can anyone else confirm?

JL is switching reservation systems

Down to 3PM pacific

JAL awards are back up now. I was hoping F floodgates would open like when SQ did their reservation system change a few years ago but no luck.

I wonder if anyone on the JAL or other OW forum has seen any problems with their website for showing intra asia awards.



same as BA too. BA can not seen any award from JAL

I know i saw a ton when it went back up, yesterday looked like less. Right now i see space on all 3x daily flights PEK-NRT/HND.

Yep there looks to be an anomaly. I see the non stop NRT-BKK but only as part of a connecting reservation.

NRT-BKK is only showing the NGO connection

JL 717 is only showing PE as available that week if you search on BA. 707 doesn't show AT ALL. Since AS doesn't support JL PE...

I would keep checking on a daily basis, but also call AS and ask them to contact JAL to explain the situation (flights available through AS before the switch are gone). Perhaps someone can wake up the IT folks to fix the problem.

You're new here, aren't you? EK awards have been showing phantom inventory for a long time due to bogus data from EK, as far as I can tell EK's response to AS is "pound sand".

It’s not just AS (see: BA, the same inventory is not showing correctly there either) and historically AS hasn’t been able to get partners to fix a damn thing, which is my point. There have been longstanding problems with partner award inventory (not just EK, that is one example) that don’t get fixed because they are not under AS’s control and partners don’t care because partner availability is low priority. Really. It’s why we don’t have JL PE on AS awards (we did and then it broke, even though we have BA/QF/CX PE). You are better off agitating on the JL board since this problem shows up on JL’s system, no? It should affect their own elites.
