On a sidetrack, do you know how many shares one needs to own to use the shareholders discount?

None, because you can buy the coupons at any good 金券ショップ here in Japan. The going rate right now is around 3,500 JPY per coupon. NH tends to run closer to 3,200 JPY.

More changes will come. This includes surface sector won't be counted towards total sector miles when making partner redemption.

Ticketing fee will go way up after the Amadeus switch!

http://www.jal.co.jp/en/inter/paymen.../overseas.html

E.g. Current ticketing fee is USD20 in the US and it will go up to USD50 after the switch.

And the Yokoso ticketing fee is TBD. Currently it's USD10.

I donít really trust TAs especially to do anything complicated.

It's still free in India on new tickets Or you can call China which is still much cheaper (150RMB, so ~USD22).

Looks like advanced front seat selection is coming to international flights from Nov 16 2017! This applies to all JMB FLY ON members, yes even JMB Crystal! Will be interesting to see how this is going to be different from the current selection options.

I'd be very sad if there is a reduction in the airport controlled seats.... Or no grading between the various status levels.

When they implemented this on domestic flights I didn't notice much differences in seats I am allowed to select. But if they open up more seats for us to pre-select, I hope it's for JMB FLY ON members only and not open to all partners' elites.
