F space to/from NA is probably blocked by the inventory lost from the New Years Eve deal. J space may be harder to come by due to the holidays, but I suspect demand should be returning to normal by...

If it didnít show back up immediately, try waiting for 10am JST (5pm PST), as that is when JAL releases new space to partners. Good luck!

JL releases seats at 10am JST daily, so you can just check around that time once/day. I donít really use AwardNexus, but yes EF doesnít show JL and CX availability.

Right, I guess for that matter, does anyone know if there is any money back for canceling after flying half of the trip? My guess is $0, given that when I booked on the CX website, the return leg...

I think it's 350% toward earned miles but only 150% toward EQM on AS. The 200% "additional bonus" doesn't count.

I can't even get Cathay's website to price HKG-YVR through JFK (at any price) without doing a multi-trip itinerary. Where did you see that HKG-JFK-YVR is a valid routing?

I'll add that Cathay *does* release some space to Asia Miles before its partners as well as provide waitlist functionality. IMO that's the incremental value of the program. If the seat is already...
