    I just noticed that Aeroplan has opened up redemptions from Canada to NRT. Even if you look for flights leaving tomorrow (Wed), coming back this weekend (Sat) you can find availability in Y, C or F. I tried a couple of bookings and got taxes in the range of $120 to $230.

    In a time when there are people who unexpectedly but desperately need to get from here to there, it seems that Aeroplan has quietly come through.

    Good on ya Aeroplan!

    While one can appreciate this as a move to permit relatives and others to get over there in a time of need, the cynic in me suspects it may also have come about because most revenue customers have cancelled their immediate plans and AC has lots of empty seats in all classes. Fuel surcharges to/from Japan have actually been among the lowest in AC's system and there are few other fees or taxes levied by the Japanese.

    Wonder how many in Japan will take up this offer with the increased concern about radiation.

    It is kind of strange as I have a friend with tickets for his family who is not allowed to change them (as of yesterday). He is desperate to get his kids out of Tochigi for a month or 2 !

    In normal practice, having an empty plane doesn't make a lot of seats available for redemptions. When have you last seen R9 on a TPAC flight? [​IMG]

    like others have said, i believe there is a significant imbalance between the number of travellers going into Tokyo vs the numbers wanting to leave Tokyo.... loads are all managed, so if its extremely soft they will naturally open up more spaces in R, I and X classes

    I have to admit that that thought was the first one to come to mind.
    I will give however give Aeroplan the benefit of the doubt.
