Frequent Flyer Program
Japan Airlines offers regular passengers with the airline JMB Mileage as a frequent flyer program.
Members can earn miles through travel and everyday activities for award tickets, coupons, merchandise and other travel awards.
The program's airline partners also include JAL's Oneworld partners, as well as Air France, China Eastern Airlines and Emirates. For the airline's most frequent flyers, JMB offers Fly On Program, a frequent flyer service status program; and JAL Global Club (JGC), an exclusive club designed for experienced travelers. The JMB program has no membership fee, and mileage will be valid to the last day of the 36th month following the month of the flight or transaction date.
In addition, if a JMB member does not accumulate mileage within 36 months after becoming a member, or a JMB member's account remains inactive at zero mileage for a consecutive 36-month period, JAL may withdraw or cancel the membership of such member.
The Fly On Program is the frequent flyer service status program and is divided into four membership levels, Crystal, Sapphire, JGC Premier and Diamond, based on the member's travel in the last calendar year. Additionally, a minimum of four JAL Group flights on eligible fare classes are required. Members earn Fly On points on eligible fare classes on JAL Group and Oneworld member airlines. These are used to calculate the member's eligibility for membership renewal, upgrade or downgrade during the membership year. Higher-tiered members are provided with increased travel benefits such as bonus mileage, additional baggage allowance, priority boarding and airport lounge access.
There are two phases to the Fly On Program service benefits:
one begins after two months following qualification for membership and the other begins from April of the following year.
Membership is valid until 31 March of the second year following membership qualification.
Japan Airlines entitles its passengers to 3 pieces of baggage of up to 32kg for First and Business Class passengers and 2 pieces of baggage of up to 23kg for Premium Economy and Economy Class.
Each passengers may carry on board one personal belonging and one baggage of up to 10kg in weight.

Japan Airlines teams up with Boom Supersonic
Denver-based Boom Supersonic has found a valuable new partner in its quest to make supersonic commercial flight a reality, as the company this week announced a strategic investment from Japan Airlines. Specifically, JAL is pitching in $10 million to help Boom develop its Mach-2.2 airliner, but the partnership also allows the airline’s leadership to offer Boom’s visionaries decades of industry experience. At the Paris Air Show in June, Boom announced 76 firm aircraft orders, and this partnership gives JAL the opportunity to pre-order up to 20 aircraft. “We are very proud to be working with Boom on the possible advancement in the commercial aviation industry,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines. “Through this partnership, we hope to contribute to the future of supersonic travel with the intent of providing more time to our valued passengers while emphasizing flight safety.”

Japan Airlines and Aeroflot consider joint business as part of new pact
Japan Airlines and Aeroflot are to start code-share flights as part of a wider planned collaboration.A joint business could be created in the future as part of the strategic co-operation deal. The aim is to provide more options for travel between Russia and Japan.
This follows the relaxation of visa requirements from January 1, leading to increased travel demand between the two countries.
The first stage of the codeshare co-operation is due to start at the end of the 2018 fiscal year.
Jal currently operates four weekly flights to Moscow Domodedovo airport from Tokyo Narita using Boeing 787-8 aircraft. Frequency was temporarily raised to seven flights a week to accommodate the demand during the peak summer season. Aeroflot operates daily non-stop flights year-round from Moscow Sheremetyevo airport to Narita using Airbus 330-300 aircraft. Jal executive vice president Tadashi Fujita said: “As the only airline in Japan operating to Russia for over 50 years, the launch of a forward looking partnership with Aeroflot demonstrates our strong commitment to this very important market. “As we jointly started the Tokyo-Moscow flight 50 years ago, this strategic co-operation of mutual benefits will offer both airlines’ customers more options and flexibility.”
Aeroflot strategy and alliances deputy CEO Giorgio Callegari said: “The Japanese market is a long-standing and important one for Aeroflot. “We believe that by expanding our partnership with Jal for both direct and transit traffic we will be able to further develop this market by providing more opportunities for our passengers.

Japan Airlines and Aeromexico will begin codesharing on select routes in Mexico some time during the next financial year, as the two airlines look to enhance connectivity between Japan and Mexico.

Which exact routes will be included in the codeshare are also still to be determined, however Japan Airlines has confirmed with Business TravellerAsia-Pacific that the two carriers are currently looking at adding about 12 of Aeromexico’s routes in Mexico to the agreement.
The agreement adds to Japan Airlines’ existing joint-business with fellow Oneworld carrier, American Airlines, which sees it currently serve eight destinations in Mexico via Los Angeles and Dallas Fort Worth. These include Aguascalientes, Cancun, Guadalajara, Leon, Mexico City, Monterrey, Queretaro and San Luis Potosi.
