    Which carrier you think is the worst JMB partner in terms of mileage accumulation rate for discounted Y? Here is the page for different accumulation rates: http://www.jal.co.jp/en/jalmile/flight.html

    Although BA and S7 earn only 25% on most discounted Y fares, CX (and in some way QF too) is worse IMHO. You can't earn anything on most of their discounted Y fares. You have to book in high booking class L to get any miles. For AM members, they earn at least 50% miles on JAL flights!

    But the worst has to be Emirates! You don't earn anything on discounted Y. Only FULL Y fares give you mileage :eek:

    Pretty useless. Flying AA last year was a bit disappointing too...

    I guess you have to fly JAL metal if you want your FOPs!

    Of course with the 20% JALCard and 2x domestic bonus :)

    But mileage wise I hate it when AM members earn on all JAL fares and we can't [​IMG]

    By the way the AA accumulation rate *might* change once JBV starts. But that's *pure speculation* at this point. But their rates aren't that bad to begin with compare to carriers like CX, BA, etc

    How about AA? They claim that's one of their stron points on the JBV presentation :eek:
