What is The Business Class Product like?

At the point of writing, there are many combinations that you could book, in terms of the airlines, the aircraft types and the types of Business Class seat. Here are some examples of the types of Business Class seat that you will be getting:

Japan Airlines Skysuite on B777-300ER / 787-8 / 787-9
Japan Airlines Skysuite on B777-200ER / 787-9

You might just want to be a little careful on the KIX/NRT/HND to BKK sector. If the aircraft type is B787 and it does not indicate “Sky Suite”, at the Japan Airlines flight selection page, you may be getting this Business Class seat:

Japan Airlines Shell Flat Neo in 2-2-2 seat configuration on B788

Where Should I Credit This Ticket?

Check out where to credit. These tickets should book into fare code X for a Japan Airlines flight and fare code I for American Airlines, for some great earnings on Alaska Airlines. If you choose to fly solely on Japan Airlines between LAX and BKK, you should be able to earn at least 37,416 Alaska miles (base miles).

I strongly recommend you to credit your flights to the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan. Check out the post below to find out why.
