How to check Emirates award availability with JAL
I am looking to book a flight on Emirates First/Business class using some JAL Mileage Bank miles. As there is no way to check for available flights using JAL’s website (one has to call) I am using Alaska’s website to search available dates. Two questions:
– Is it fair to assume that if there is no Emirates award redemption available for a specific date on Alaska’s, it will also not be available on JAL?
– Are there other ways I can check dates available for Emirates award redemption with JAL?
Alaska has sometimes mentioned not having full access to partner award availability so while in general what you see should be a good indicator but if you want to make sure I would call in.
I am also trying to search for EK award availability to book with JAL. Using Alaska and Qantas. They are not matching up. When dates are on Alaska the are not on Qantas and some dates on Qantas are not on Alaska. Which is more accurate? Super confusing!
Unfortunately, youre just going to have to call JAL to confirm space
