I am planning a long haul trip with my two sons that will be about 15,000 miles each on AA flights in December. With the 1,000 mile bonus info from JALPak http://www.jal.co.jp/121campaign/jal_oneworld2011/index_en.html plus the combinability of family miles on JAL, I believe that we can earn a grand total 48,000 JAL miles for this trip. I will not be needing the miles to make a status threshold on AA. One concern is that JAL award redemptions seem to have hefty fuel surcharges. AA awards on JAL flights have no fuel surcharges. Any advice on the best way to credit these miles?
