I booked an award ticket to KIX (Osaka) today on UA in business, should I switch it over to ANA? As it stands right now I'm flying PHL-ORD-KIX.

Where are you finding this information? Doesn't seem to be on US website and haven't seen any announcements made in news. Would be nice, I figure we could use ANA intra-Asia? Would it be only 90k in J to Asia?!!?

I know, i'd fly ANA so i could add a flight to Sapporo (CTS) on ANA rather then take the train from Osaka.

I thought Siegel went over there many months ago and signed this deal. I think they've been implementing it over the past few months.

Taking a train to CTS from KIX is not my idea of a good time unless you just like riding trains. It's a good 5+ hours on the bullet train to northern Honshu, and from there it's another long, long trip (through the world's longest tunnel...) to get to Sapporo.

It's like a 1.5 hour flight, and I bet it's cheaper to fly than to take the train...

Isn't this just part of joining Star Alliance? ANA is in Star Alliance. It starts on May 4. Ergo...
