    As one of my coworkers said "Isn`t this just a case excuse for JAL to start axing half the flights they should have ages ago???"

    Interesting thought to ponder....

    By the way all suspensions are subject to government approval

    These are huge capacity cuts. I didn't realize that NRT and JAL were suffering so much. (I mean the airline, not you JALPak.)

    FYI, I just got off the phone with JGC in the US. The unhelpful agent told me basically they handle passengers on these cancelled flights on a case by case basis. And they have to ask the management what to do. So fight for it if you want a better routing or any other compensation, especially if you are a loyal/high revenue JAL flyer.

    That being said, if you are booked on one of these flights in June, you won't know what will happen if they cancel in June. Good luck LOL I won't issue my Yokoso any time soon as they can't give me a definite answer if I can rebook without penalty or reroute my Yokoso ticket (my bet is yes but I don't have to take the risk as I have plenty of time to issue my Yokoso :p)

    Anyone affected by these cancellations? And how did JAL handle your case?

    Um...JL735 has 0 in business class and only high booking classes in Y are available in June...it looks like the flight will get cancelled soon...JL029 here I come :(

    Edit: Weird...JAL website still selling business class ticket but the availability tool on flightstats returned 0 :confused: Maybe there's still hope :eek:
