    Now you can book your Oneworld Yokoso ticket online. All you need to provide is your international flights info and e-ticket numbers. It's pretty simple!

    There are some new requirements on the new Yokoso page.

    Not sure how strictly they are enforcing the ID with foreign address check. E.g. HKID doesn't have the address printed on it.

    Would a USA passport where one has filled in a foreign address on the contact page be sufficient? If so, anyone with a USA passport could qualify as you're encouraged to cross out and update the information on that page as needed.

    seriously who came up with this dumb idea...they should just check the entry stamp like JR does and have ways for Japanese citizens living abroad to proof their country of residence before their flight.

    I foresee a lot of international moves for a small number of people.

    LOL the tactic is to show them an ID in foreign language and claim part of that is your address :D

    The only way to crack you guys down is to check the entry stamp! Should I send in some comments and tell them how stupid this new ID idea is and how great the entry stamp idea is :rolleyes: :p

    But you still have to book the Welcome to Japan ticket through JAL/TA. Can't do that online yet

    What makes you think I haven't done that already and that's what triggered this change :rolleyes::p But it's nice that they finally let you do the booking yourself to avoid errors

    actually Yokoso is probably a money maker for JAL....they still get additional revenue on flights they would have gotten nothing...

    Well depends...probably losing money for YOUR Yokoso if you start flying lots of international flights with other OW carriers though. They are giving you all the F benefits with minimal flying :rolleyes:

    Minimal flights will be way less than this

    I've been flying Biz tickets between ITM-HND for the past 4-5 weeks..33000yen per roundtrip is not cheap
