It's the same trade-off that SQ business has had for years, although they did improve the amount of recline available in newer refurbishments. Some people enjoy the extra elbow room as opposed to the...

I guess sometimes you have to make a judgment comparing the cost (paid/unpaid holidays, etc.) of different dates against the cost of a higher fare. 200k in economy for a medium haul route is insane...

It seems like a lot of the price hike you are experiencing is because you left the booking too late considering the popularity of that particular aircraft/route. There would have been cheaper fares...

I don't think you're looking hard enough. There are J flights for 222,000 yen around that time and Y for a little over 100,000. You just can't be to picky on the weekdays.

I find that puzzling as well, especially considering that they are serving the medium haul style single trays in business class.

I recently took a HND-BKK that departed after midnight and the flight was credited a couple of hours prior to landing, so if you are on the 16:40 out of NRT that day, maybe it scrapes through?

I find it difficult to agree with this. If that were the case, then why wouldn't they just remove the PY perk for SFC while preserving it for Platinum and Diamond members?

I think there are a...

Superior meals for Premium Economy over Economy for the first time. Seems to tie in with the changes to PY access for elites. I wonder if this will eventually be replicated across the fleet.

I'm wondering if that's why my waitlisted upgrade from PY to J went through at the gate on a HND-BKK the other night. I.e. A diamond demanding a PY upgrade and their clearing me forward at the last...

Honestly, it depends on what metric you're using for comparison. In terms of seat width ANA is great. On the other hand, I'm not happy with the amount of recline, and I think the huge legroom delta...

I guess JL doesn't need to change anything - they never offered complimentary PY upgrades, and instead of them having to offer it to compete, ANA has helpfully met them at the bottom.

Sorry to heap on the questions, but do you have a Japanese address? It seems that the SFC card can only be delivered to a Japanese address.

You'll see recurrence prevention language all through Japanese corporate risk management regulations. They need to show they are taking steps to stop it from happening again. I agree it is a bit of a...

And in response no ANA Group employees can consume alcohol on ANA planes or in ANA lounges. To be honest I'm a little surprised this was not a rule in the first place.

Smart to play it safe. I thought I had my 50,000 perfectly worked out with a final trip to Phuket, only to find that the TG-operated Bangkok-Phuket leg accrues zero premium points.

Interesting question, because in the English answer to this question the term "mileage" is used, which has got to be mistranslated.

On the English page explaining premium points, it reads:
