SUPER discount on North America and Europe flights upgrade


Japan Airlines is running a campaign in Japan offering its JMB members as much as 63% off the required mileage for upgrade awards to North America and Europe. This is probably to match ANA's latest upgrade campaign.

Campaign period:
June 22 2009 - September 30 2009 and registration will start on June 16 at 4 PM.

Upgrade award from

  • Japan to Europe: 55,000 miles -> 20,000 miles (roundtrip)/ 10,000 miles (one-way)
  • Japan to North America: 50,000 miles -> 20,000 miles (roundtrip) / 10,000 miles (one-way)
  • Japan to Sao Paulo: 70,000 miles -> 45,000 miles (roundtrip) / 22,500 miles (one-way)

Looks like you are eligible as long as your ticket has a booking class of K, B, W, or Y. This is insane!!! They had 50% off upgrade award before but only Normal fare or those eligible for PY seats are eligible for the campaign. No idea if they will extend this campaign to other region of JMB members. If they do, can I ask for a refund for my upgrade in July :(
