Using JAL points on EK

For the new EK awards, it seems like I lose with LIS-DXB being 63K miles on the new award chart in Business versus 60K before.

Am I allowed a stopover at least, within Europe? Or an open jaw?

Thanks

Didn't that page you link tell you stopovers are allowed? Anyway here is the full details: http://www.jal.co.jp/en/jalmile/use/partner_air/p_jmb/

2 stopovers (at 2 different cities) is permitted. Surface sector is considered as a stopover and miles of the surface sector is included in the total trip miles calculation.

Completely unrelated question, but EK is now putting YQ ex-Australia flights. Is that getting charged on JL?

Someone asked me the same question recently and got back to me via twitter saying JAL has not passed the YQ onto us yet.

I just made an EK redemption and can confirm that I was not charged YQ.

I just booked a YYZ-DXB RT in EK F using JAL, and they charged me $650 in YQ.

I made a JFK-MXP( in First) last month and was charged less than $60.

Would be sorry to hear that if true. Guess AS is the better option for EK now.

not so good

also makes no sense. yyz-dxb has embedded q surcharge of 295 x2 ($590) and jfk-mxp has embedded q surcharge of 475.

So are you saying that I was overcharged $60? The agent said that "fees and taxes" would run about $650. I haven't seen a charge on my card yet, but is there a possibility he is incorrect?
