    It seem that both AA and United fly from Chicago to Japan. What is the best useage of points to get to Japan from Chicago Business class wise?

    I have about 250,000 in both accounts and looking for 2 tickets?

    Any really nice planes or cabins that go there?

    ANA flies direct. Definitely a superior option using *A miles.

    you can use UA miles for ANA. Or your AA miles for Japan Airlines. Either option (on a 77W) is going to likely be far nicer than UA or AA metal.

    Their Staggered Business Class offers good seats. And the food is always great. :)

    JAL's C service is some of the best I've experienced - far and away better than AA. Given the choice, though, ANA would be hard to beat.

    When you say you have 250K in both accounts - 250K in UA and 250K in AA?

    I think JAL is still using the 787 on BOS-NRT if willing to fly ORD-BOS first. :)
