Not happy once I was at the jet bridge! Saw F sign and I knew something was up. JAL ended up using the originally planned equipment type on my flights! No wonder my Class J cleared. But I want domestic F if it’s available oh well I had already spent the upgrade fee at the airports during connection so they are getting my money either way LOL

How available are Cathaway J flights from YYZ - DPS for 2 people? Planning a trip for next March, trying to accumulate miles right now just curious if I would still be able to book it ~4-6 months before departure on miles

Difficult to say, maybe the Cathay forum can help you a bit more on general release times. Then there is the question of of that reflects to JMB availability.

Anecdotal, I recently booked a J award on Cathay 5 months out, and found reasonable availability So certainly not impossible.

And speaking of AM, any rumours on the codeshare with them? I have a Mexico City trip in my fall schedule, and it would be lovely to have the direct AM flight as JL codeshare.

Because our corporate deal does not cover NH.

Unfortunately not So I guess my best option will be JL to DFW and the AA the rest of way

For the JGC paper coupon (2000yen), what's the best use of them? I can spend them on ticket but the service charge seems high whether at the airport or over phone, and there isn't a way to purchase online right?

There is no way to use them online. I have tried to book a ticket online, not issuing it, and then go by the JAL Plaza in Yurakucho to have the coupons applied. That also triggered the 5300 yen booking fee.

I don't really understand why they don't give epoints to non Japan residents as well So much easier to use.
