Important Information

 

Earning Miles

  • Emirates Skywards Members are eligible to earn Skywards Miles on all Japan Airlines–operated international and domestic flights with a JL code. Japan Airline–affiliate flights on Japan Transocean Air, JAL Express, and J-Air are eligible to earn miles.
  • Infant fares are not eligible to earn miles for domestic and international travel.
  • Members will earn Skywards Miles only on Emirates and Japan Airlines codeshare flights operated by Japan Airlines.
  • Please give your Emirates Skywards membership number when making your reservation. Please note that membership number registration at the Japan Airlines check-in counter is not accepted on Japan Airlines domestic flights. If you have not given your membership number before your flight, you may request post-flight credit by sending your original boarding passes (there are no tickets issued for Japan Airlines domestic flights) along with your Emirates Skywards membership number to Emirates Skywards.
  • Miles cannot be earned on Group Inclusive Tours (GIT) / Inclusive Individual Fares (IIT), rewards flights, or free ticket promotions. Miles cannot be earned on any industry or agency discount tickets, charter flight tickets, or special provision tickets.

Spending Miles

  • Reward tickets are not valid on codeshare flights operated by any other carrier other than Japan Airlines and Japan Airline–affiliate flights on Japan Transocean Air, JAL Express, and J-Air.
  • The same number of miles is required for a reward ticket, whether for an adult, child, or infant who will occupy a seat. Miles stated are for direct flights only.
  • During Peak Periods, reward flight availability is limited as determined by Japan Airlines. Please visit the Japan Airlines website to find out more about blackout dates for international flights.
  • International Rewards
    • International Rewards allow one stopover, in addition to the final destination, at the connecting city.
    • A connection of 24 hours or more will be considered a stopover.
    • Involuntary stopovers, including connections, will not count against the total number of eligible stopovers allowed.
    • International reward tickets in Business Class and First Class that have a domestic sector either to or from Japan will be booked as Economy Class reward tickets for the domestic sector.
    • Within Japan:
      • For journeys that originate outside Japan (where Japan is not the final destination), but include stopovers in Japan, a maximum of two stopover locations in Japan will be permitted for the entire round-trip journey.
      • When Japan is the destination on a journey that originates outside Japan, in addition to the final point of destination in Japan, one other stopover point in Japan will be allowed.
      • For journeys that originate in Japan, stopovers in Japan will not be allowed. However, transfers (changing of plane within 24 hours) will be permitted.
      • Only two Japan domestic sectors may be included in the entire journey for international rewards.
      • Where no direct service is operated, two or more reward tickets may be required.

For Japan domestic routes, special rules apply to reward tickets as follows:

  • Infants not occupying a seat need to be younger than 3 years old and must have a non-revenue ticket when sharing a seat with their parent.

Reservations

  • Each domestic sector for reward travel shall be reserved no earlier than 09:30 (Japan time) two months prior to the departure date of the flights, as per Japanese local regulations.
  • Open tickets are not allowed.
  • Routing restrictions: Any two sectors can be included in one reward ticket, provided the same sector in the same direction of travel is not used twice.
  • All reward flight sectors must be on direct flight.
  • All flights must be confirmed at the time of booking the reward ticket. Waitlists or reward ticket name changes are not permitted.

Validity
