Has anyone been able to book this fare recently? I see tons of availability on Matrix, but cannot find a single place that can price the flight? Thanks.

I got to pay screen via google flights. 3 options (aa.com, jal.com, or call jal). I only tried with the first 2.
alternatively, a TA can book these (confirmed). I like to throw a bone to the TA I use as he works hard for me and does a bunch of gratis stuff. It's just the same to me.

I was able to book a few weeks ago JFK KUL on the Japan Air website but there were very few available dates in early December when we’re going.

Alaska or American

I'm trying to figure out if I should credit to Alaska (MVP Gold 75k) or American (EXP)...am I doing the math right below to help make the decision?

Ticketed: Japan Airlines
Ticket Class: X
Air miles: 20,120 (Round Trip) JFK-Tokyo-KUL-Tokyo-JFK

Alaska:
RDM (100% Base Miles +25% Class of Service +100% (Additional Bonus)) = 45,270 + 56,587 (MVP Gold 75) = 101,857
EQM (100% + 25% Class of Service Bonus): 25,150
*Not sure about EQM

or

American Airlines:
RDM (100% Base + 25% Class of Service) = 25,150 + 24,144 (AA EXP) = 49,294
EQM (2.00): 40,240
EQD (25%): 5,030

For Alaska, you definitely don't get 125% of the total. You get 125% of the base miles as MVPG75.

20,120 * ( 1.0 (base miles) + 0.25 (class of service) + 1.0 (additional bonus) + (1.0 * 1.25 (base miles * elite mileage multiplier))) = 20,120 * 3.5 = 70,420 RDM.

Still a good haul, but not as good as your initial calculation.

Edit: This is to the best of my understanding going back to check previous AS credited flights. I'm not exactly an expert compared to most on here.

It is one that I created for myself, particularly useful for multi-airline, multi-cabin, itineraies.

This fare from JFK to TPE/TSA has returned at a lower price, ticketable on either JL or AA. You can get it below $2,000 with an Expedia package. (I'm not sure about Amex IAP.)

Example
JFK-HND-TSA -- $2,069

Thank you. Do you know if better to book on JL or AA, or doesn’t matter? (If crediting to Alaska)

also how do you book Expedia package or get further discount?

It does not earn if ticketed by AA after February 20. It earns better in AS if ticketed by JL regardless.
