JAL seat blocking on business class award?

JAL seat blocking on business class award?

  1. kw2652

    Hi, I’ve flown JAL business on the Apex Suite 777 several times and was always able to select a window seat in advance. But I feel like I read somewhere that JAL is now blocking Apex Suite window seat assignments for award tickets but I can’t remember where that was and I never saw it mentioned anywhere again. Can anyone confirm if it’s still possible to select a window Apex Suite in JAL business on the 777 and/or 787? Thanks!

    Hi kw, I know of at least one other poster here who is blocked from certain seats on award travel. I thought he was able to snag a window, but only in rows 7 / 8 / 9 on the 777, not forward of the door, even though rows 3 and 4 had open seats. I think if you have OneWorld Emerald status you can select any seat on an award.

    Hi, yup thats me, JAL in J from HND to SIN and I am stuck in the 2nd J cabin with the entire plane boarding past you and possibly close to crying babies of Coach. Spoke to JAL and I cant do anything about until same day at HND where if a window seat is open in the forward cabin I can get it.

    As long as you can get a window seat in Apex you will be good, even if its in the 2nd cabin. Although I dont know JAL that well so is there even a 2nd J cabin on your plane? If there isnt and you are totally blocked from any window seat that would be a huge bummer, and especially in an Apex set up.
