I see that people here prefer to use QF points to book JL as opposed to AA miles which is interesting.
How many QF points and taxes is JL F these days?

I don’t have any AA points, but more than adequate QF points. It’s one way USA - HND - Aus +. It will end up being around 285K points and around USD 65.

QF no brainer for me. The JL biz bed is cramped and very short in comparison.

WRT the OP, JL First is excellent. My only criticism is the cabin temperature - like most Asian carriers they think 24-26 degrees is suitable for sleeping.
I travelled JL biz to NRT and did`nt think it was anything fancy compared to SQ.

I will update the actual cost once the multiple pending authorisations charges on my cc get sorted out in the next few days hopefully.

I have no idea why theQF transactions are quite different. But I suspect it will end up being the AUD98 below.

Correction on cash component:
USA - HND = AUD98
HND - AUS = AUD145.

as per my cc charges.

We did several sectors on JL F AA awards.Taxes between US and Japan $US5.60 as well as less points than QF.
But that has basically stopped as JAL made their awards available 360 days out instead of 330 as it was until a couple of years ago.
At 330 days AA had the awards available as they were released.Now with JL at 360 but AA only making them available at their limit of 330 days out the F awards have disappeared by then with only an occasional opportunity.

Seems very frustrating. How about calling the local JL number and asking if they can enlighten you as to timing for a fix?

QF say that JL has changed the coding for their Award seats after 1 Apr.

I have spent weeks trying to get this sorted and now stuck with one way flights to CDG that I am unable to add any other bookings too.

As a couple we are booked in 1D and 1G - with the hope that the Salon is served in Row 1 first :cool:

It was a QF problem not JL as the new fare code for JL F was showing up as a revenue fare for QF bookings (and for several weeks my Award bookings have been showing up as “A” revenue F fares!

Long story short, I actually had Qantas call me on Friday and tell me that the other sectors are now ok to book, which is what I did.

Finally ticketed this afternoon and selected our seats in F for all 4 JL flights.

Now just hoping that our borders are open, that JL are flying, and that they are still offering First Class next April and May ☝☝
