JAL Upgrade TOKUTOKU Campaign: 50% off on Upgrade Awards on Selected Routes


Japan Airlines (JAL) has rolled out yet another upgrade discount campaign on flight to Korean, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Guam. This time lower booking classes are eligible (not just Y and W). You can redeem a roundtrip upgrade award on these routes with just 10,000 JMB miles! Below are the details no this discounted upgrade award campaign. Campaign Period: October 10 - December 21 2011 (Flight Date) and there is no restricted travel datesfor this award Eligible Members: JMB members from ALL regions. Eligible Routes: Japan = Korea/China/Hong Kong/Taiwan/Guam flights. Eligible Booking Classes: B/H/K* Required Miles: 10,000 JMB miles * For Y/W classes, you are eligible for a more flexible award. Please refer to JAL website (Japan, Asia/Oceania, American, EMEA) To apply for this discounted upgrade award, you need to have your tickets issued! This is different from the other upgrade award which you can first make a reservation, wait till the upgrade clear then issue your ticket. You can only apply through JAL website if you book your ticket through JAL unfortunately. If you book through a travel agent, you would have to contact JAL by phones. Although the campaign says website only, since it's not doable through the web in this case, you should be fine. But if you want to be 100% sure about this, call JAL first :p Also, only roundtrip upgrade awards are available for this discounted upgrade award. NO one-way upgrade with half of the required roundtrip miles. Hey you already got 50% off :p The deadline to apply for this award is 23:59 2 days prior to your departure date online. Pacific Time for the American region, UK time for the EMEA region, Hong Kong time for the Asia and Oceania region. BUT for Japan region members, they have until noon 1 day prior to outbound departure date to apply. One confusing part of the campaign page is that it says JL coded code-share flights operated by other airlines are also eligible BUT the code-share upgrade flight and route restrictions apply. On the Japanese version of the page, it links to the eligible codeshare flight upgrade page. You can find the English version of the page here. According to the restrictions, none of the flights on Japan - Korea/China/Hong Kong/Taiwan/Guam routes is eligible!? Am I missing something?
