    JAL has posted some updates on the domestic side although all in Japanese only.

    CTS expansion from March 8 2013: http://www.jal.co.jp/info/dom/121129.html
    Completed Lounges (but furniture upgrades will follow from end of Mar 2013): http://www.jal.co.jp/info/dom/130322_3.html
    CTS refurbishment on March 29 2013: http://www.jal.co.jp/info/dom/130322.html
    ITM refurbishment on March 31 2013: http://www.jal.co.jp/info/dom/130322_2.html

    But I also have a blog post on this in English: http://jal-pak.blogspot.com/2013/03/updates-on-jal-domestic-lounges.html#more

    It's unclear to me whether the Mar 29 and 31 dates are the start of the renovation or they will be completed on that day. Anyone knows?
