Change to EK’s JAL Award Chart?
I was just playing around with using Emirates miles to book a r/t J ticket on JAL, and remembered this great FM post about uses for EK miles: [URL]https://frequentmiler.com/searching-for-emirates-sweet-spots-with-partner-airline-awards/#Japan_Airlines_(JAL[/URL])
I always thought 125k for North America to Japan in J was a good deal, and 145k to Australia as well. So am I crazy or did Emirates change their JAL award chart to distance based and kill these options? Or can I just not find the right page? Their search tool seems to be a bit broken as well. Here’s what I believe is the new award chart but would be very happy to be told I’m wrong: [URL]https://www.emirates.com/us/english/skywards/about/partners/airlines/japan-airlines.aspx[/URL]
