Premium Fare Deals in JL

I have actually searched through the Premium Fare deals section in Mileage Runs, but it seems fairly difficult to find deals for JL (only two out of 4-5 pages, I stopped after that).

Hopefully if there are good deals on premium fares (PE/BUSINESS/FIRST) then it can be posted here....

There rarely are good premium fare deals on JAL. Though more if you don't start in Japan.

Not so much a premium fare, but American Express offers JAL premium economy at about 15% less than JAL direct or fare found on google. My Son and his three friends just purchased four premium economy tickets from ORD to NRT on American Express for a savings of almost $1,000. I was surprised to see such a discount on American Express.

My post focused on the opportunity to by JAL tickets through American Express at a discount to what JAL offers direct or what can be found on google flights.

Thank you for contributing to this thread.

I got an email from JAL a few months ago regarding special fares they were having in J from the US <-> Tokyo. I think the best deal was around $4,200 round trip. I took advantage and booked a trip.

The minimum stay is a bit of a killer for doing 4 of these, if you can't throw them in to a work schedule of longer stays.

Yes. Booking code R for Premium economy was introduced this month, and booking code E will be switched from Premium economy to Economy come 2020 October.
Could mess up people's earnings in premium economy when booked into R.
