JAL Domestic Award Search (BA Search Engine)

Hi - Has anybody had any luck searching for JAL domestic award flights? I've tried to the BA search engine and it doesn't seem to show any domestic award availability, internationally is not a problem.

For example if I search JFK -> CTS or JFK -> OKA it will have no problem finding me an award routing me JFK->NRT/HND-> CTS or JFK->NRT/HND->OKA but if I search just HND->OKA or HND->CTS or the reverse it shows no availability for anytime, which I find hard to believe since there's tons of flights everyday.

Basically the idea is to use 60K Emirates miles w/ one stop over to do JFK -> CTS -> OKA -> JFK

thanks

Welcome to Flyertalk Christopher Chang, and welcome in particular to the BA forum, it's good to see you here. And I hope we will see more of you in the future too.

You can only book domestic JAL two months or less before departure:

Booking Domestic JAL with Avios

As an alternative, particularly if you are chasing status with the BAEC system and you are not a Japan resident, have a look at the JAL Explorer Pass tickets.

Today, JAL opens domestic flights at 330 days advance (without international connection, e.g. individual/standalone/independent/whatever domestic flights).
