    So discounted mileage upgrades and a handful of domestic coupons for elites is a reasonable replacement for UGPs? I don't think so...
    Full flat business class seats is nice but not until 2013

    Hope there is better to come...

    The question is does it apply to JGC members (discounted upgrades ) or just crystal, sapphire , Premier and Diamond? It seems a little unknown from what they have put up so far...

    Interesting the difference in Japanese and English pages.

    No mention of stage 1 - Bic or even that there are 4 stages on the English page. Does that mean that's it for "improvements" for non japan based jmb members?

    not to mention if history is any indication, most of us won't see the new seats until 2020 :rolleyes: :p (ok...probably 2015)

    and if that's the case, that probably means no big changes for JMB program itself?

    I think so. They have done enough damage for one year.

    seriously if NH offers SFC for overseas members without requiring them to get a Japan CC, I would seriously consider joining the dANArkside

    LOL that would be the day i die.

    I wonder what benefits or promotions they will offer for the next "benefit" releases on the 14th and 27th! So far the benefits offered are not that bad and overall benefits but what is next? Save 1,000 miles on redeeming Class J vouchers for elites?

    I`m told there is more to come but it is top secret. Release on the 27th is the big one but i think it is more related to the program rather than elites specifically hence why i think more Y fares will get 100% miles rather than 70%

    yea that would make it up somehow! but if that's some JMB changes like this, they would have posted that on the Eng site too...there's no mention of further announcements on Eng version...maybe it's the new C and possibly F seats announcement on 27th :p But no idea how that would be mileage project 2012...unless they give elite discount on those seats :p

    I think all the elite changes have finished hence this was the Fly On bonus announcement. Next announcements would be related to the program (in theory) but not elite benefit changes. Makes sense right?

    Weird. That is a good point about lack of announcements. Maybe it will all be geared towards domestics only. Credit card miles per 100 yen going up?
