following the expanded advanced booking window window for international tickets, JAL will do the same for domestic ticket from Sep 10 2019. This includes JMB award bookings as well. Guess golden week and Obon award bookings will have to be done much earlier in advanced now

I do not think booking available 330 days in advance does not mean all discount fare will be available at 330 days in advance. In the U.S. when trying to book 330 days out usually means heavily discount fares are not available at that point, in the U.S. usually have to wait till around 6-4 month in advance for most discount fares.

I think we will see how JAL will do discount fare availability. Also JAL still follow traditional summer/winter schedule change, when booking that far in advance then good chance there will be schedule change.

The schedule could certainly change, especially since they are currently in the process of reallocating slots at HND.

Of course there are schedule changes on HND CTS as well. Nothing is set in stone Both timing and aircraft allocation can change. And not all aircraft have F.

Difficult to say, as JAL has not given many details. Book when you see a price that you are happy with.
