    While planing/researching my next trip ... I wanted to get from ICN to KIX. To my surprise I couldnt actually find a JL flight from ICN to KIX. Then I looked around some more and found the following.
    JL5120 / JL5212 / JL5214 ... but surprise surprise those flights are actually KE flights (723/725/721)

    I'm not sure if those JL flights would be bookable ... since they're actually KE flights?

    Does anyone know?

    thanks!

    you are looking at the wrong airport. JAL only flies to GMP from KIX.

    Its pretty straight forward isnt it ? .....if the operating carrier is a not a partner of AA ...one cannot book awards or receive miles on paid tickets for that flight code-share or not.:)

    Even more simple than that is the general rule that codeshare flights are not bookable as awards. There may be a couple exceptions out there somewhere, but that general rule is pretty solid.

    Interestingly one of the exceptions is with AA miles. QF codeshare flights on JQ are bookable for awards.

    I'm also looking to book a one way ICN-KIX using CX Asia Miles and it seems I can book it via partner award on AA (according to asiamiles award finder) . I guess it would be via their partner JL operated by KE or operated by JL themselves.

    Will check it out with CX if it's possible to book this award flight.

    JQ is QF's low cost subsidiary.

    it is bookable but be aware you will spend more miles if you use book with your AA account than booking with JAL Mileage Bank account.
