No JAL pilots calendar at T1 Flight Shop, but did have JTA ones that are sold out in Amazon.jp. I thought they were selling bulk packs of the snack goods previously, or am I misremembering?

Hmm... I canít remember now. I remember seeing a stack of them at least once somewhere on my trip and thinking wow theyíre not sold out, but I think it was the calendar section of a bookstore.

Senior CA starting chuckling when she saw the copy of Air Stage behind Airline (January is for JAL?). GrASping life is alright, but I think I prefer PY.

Shoot, I forgot to ask for wontons on the outbound flight.

Flew back on Xmas even from HNL and found that JL tagged our luggages with handwritten notes on Xmas ornament shaped tags when we retrieved the luggages! Very cute. I wonder if they do this every year, and on every routes? Flew JFK-NRT last year on 23rd arriving 24th but didnít get anything.

I have not flown on Xmas, but flying on Halloween from Hi Chi Minh City got a very cute Halloween tag. I don't know if they do it an all routes, but they do seem to have some holiday tags.

But it seems to be only for the one day, colleague flying on the 30th of October did not get a tag.

SAN will be the best deal for upgrade with SS and full long-haul service (unlike YVR)

There are new restrictions added though...you can't get miles back if you have redeemed the upgrade at discounted rate, e.g. SFO

Yeah I saw. For the summer season, more capacity is needed. For winter, still wide open. I guess it is still tourists more than businesses filling the planes.

I am sure there are plenty of J Pop groups that will look photogenic on the side of a plane....

but they aren't as popular though...do they have enough fans to fill multiple chartered flights to HNL for their concerts?
