For passengers transferring to an international flight from another international flight, through check-in may not be available depending on the itinerary. Please ask for details at the first international flight departure airport.
I will need to give JAL a call regarding this. Not sure how they will handle this if you have a tight connection and check through isn't available

If I knew, I would have pushed back my flight by a few days. Don't want to fly during the migration at all. But at least I am not flying out on Day 0. It was a nightmare when CX migrated over to Amadeus few years back.

Ack! I reread the dates and online check-in is suspended 11/11. Just wonderful, looks like we'll have to exit at LAX, go to the counter, then go back in. And make sure I have printed copies of the itineraries.

I didn't see anything about domestic, other than 11/15-16. Does that mean it's mostly unaffected or that will be communicated later?

Please please please go well. Domestic flight on 19th and ITM-HND-SFO on the 23rd.

Did the web check in Thursday and was able to print the boarding pass yesterday, so that part appears to still working. For some reason I couldn't print out my own BP, just my wife's.

You won't be able to book it until the migration is over for the reservation system.

Looks like the NA ticketing office is pretty busy...they may not be able to issue my Yokoso before the cut off even though I provided all the docs yesterday LOL Oh well I don't care as long as I don't have to pay for the USD50 ticketing fee.

Sure but expect super long line and if things don't go smoothly there could be delay.

No longer allows separation payments of Y and Class J/Domestic F upgrade fees
Kinds of confused about this rule. Does it means if I purchased Y class and I am not be able to pay 1,000/8,000Yen at airport for upgrade to J/F?
Thanks.
