    I know they joined one world recently but am wondering if this is still doable? I still see their flights coming up on ANA's search.

    The answer is "no". UA does not even list TAM as a *A partner anymore, so that one would not even be sure about the rules (e.g., eligible TAM fare classes) that would apply.

    They may still be a partner with ANA but that doesn't mean UA can book them (and UA cannot). Not all partnerships are strictly along alliance lines. US kept a bunch of *A partners, for example, though not all for the same duration.

    Contact the program where you have the miles and request the award booking.

    What about them?

    I don't think Qantas has JJ inventory available online yet. No idea if JAL or Cathay do. Or any others. I was pretty satisfied that I found one reliable source so I stopped digging much further than that.
