NRT Fastrack for OWE and guest in Y?

HI Guys, I will be flying soon to NRT and back on JAL in Y , likewise my friend.

Being a OWE with QR, I understand I will get Fast track access through immigration, however my friend will be flying on a different JAL Y flight. Will they grant access to both?

Thank you for your advice.

There is arrival fast track through immigration, but that is only for first class passengers. Not granted to status holders. There is no fast track for immigration upon departure.

For departure security, there is a fast track for business class, first class, and OWS/OWE (not to be confused with the JAL F security). I don't think they worry about it being te same flight, but can't remember right now if Oneworld allows a guest for fast track security as a general benefit.

Wanted to update as a data point, having just returned from NRT trip.

Checked in at F counter and was told that yes no problem using F departure fast track security which is just across the corridor from the F check-in, then proceeded to normal immigration desk after that (no-queue so didn't notice if it was actually priority line there). Was super efficient.

Enjoyed the sushi after that! Amazingly fresh especially given the outlay from me...

Donít expect it. You can be lucky if the courtesy is offered by JAL (for the dedicated F counter and fast track) but donít be surprised if it isnít.
By the way, security fast track for biz/OWS has hawks at the entrance (contract company, not JAL) who scrutinized the boarding passes and send away ineligible passengers.

In the linked web page I was wondering for a bit before I got it....

But actually the link is about the JAL F fats track and the picture is from the Oneworld fast track.

the “fats” track has always allowed one companion, probably because most Japanese are fat enough for the fats track LOL

Tokyoite was talking about Oneworld fast track whilst OP is flying JAL. So i just posted everything accordingly.

JAL posted everything in english and japanese with minimal abiguousness as seen above.

The JAL fasttrack is amazing... I wish I could use it when flying other OW and can waltz into the lounge!
