    Hi all,

    About time we wrote another one of these for this year.
    • Rolling tier elite qualifications
    • Bring back upgrade points or if that`s too embarrassing then having upgrade vouchers for Premier and Diamond as one of their gift selections with same usage as how upgrade points used to work.
    • Longer operation hours for call centres. Suggestion would be for min for Diamond and Premier opening 7 days a week from 7 am to midnight - Fumitani suggests opening 7 days a week from 7 am to 9 pm min.
    • Give 50% bonus mileage to JGC normal members to match SFC
    • Remove cancellation fees for awards to Premier and Diamonds
    • Have JMB Diamond luggage tags like NH Diamond
    • Guaranteed Y or C for Diamonds
    • Elite flight bonuses to be on all OW flights rather than just AA and JL flights
    • No YQ on int award tickets (sendaiben)
    • Allow awards to be booked up to 6 hours before the flight (Fumitani)
    • Make JGC membership only allowed for Japanese residence with JAL credit card like NH`s Super Flyers Club (Fumitami/Simon)
    I`ll add more when i remember all my wishes and add everyone elses as they come in.

    Well you`ve got that on domestic flights which is better than nothing.

    • allow awards to be booked up until 6 hours before the flight
    • call center open from current 8am to 7pm change to 7am to 9pm at least.....including weekends
    • no overseas JGC members (be like NH and have CC based only)

    Depends where you are based as to where overseas is.

    Thinking again about this maybe the better answer is to charge more points for their JGC annual fee. I think 15,000 points per year should weed out a lot of non serious JAL flyers and matches more or less of the yen value we pay for the credit card fee in Japan.
