Upgrade points or other bonuses for top-tier elites

Dubbed JMB Diamond JCG Premier Service Selection 2010

In Japanese:

http://www.jal.co.jp/jalmile/flyon/sentaku/

You can choose from among six options between Dec. 1, 2009 and Jan. 31, 2010.

For instance, a Diamond member will be given 20 extra upgrade points and a JCG Premier 15. These are in addition to 40 points for Diamond and 30 for Premier given each other.

You can also opt for giving the same status as yours to a partner (with no upgrade points).

Overseas members may get a different package. The default option is already different for overseas members.

Finally! I have been waiting for them to update the page for 2010. So no other changes for other elite levels? And if I read it correctly, looks like they are finally giving out domestic F class upgrade to Diamond and JGC Premier

Edit: Actually are these for 2009 or 2010 elites? Say if you are JGC Premier in 2009 but doesn't qualify for 2010 do you get these benefits?

Some details

It looks like it is only for Diamond and JGC Premier.

This is in addition to the existing benefits these elite members have been receiving including 40 upgrade points for Diamond and 40 for Premier.

Application period for course selection: Dec. 1, 2009 - Jan. 31, 2010.
- If you reach applicable status in November, your application period will start Dec. 15. If you hit status in December, the final month of the program year, you can apply from Jan. 15.

Thanks for the translation Chiangi Too bad this is not the new changes for 2010 membership I have been waiting for...I will just keep waiting for the announcement...

Looks like elites in other regions will have the same options. Just saw the same link posted on JAL Hong Kong website (Japanese version)
