Now members of American Airlines AAdvantage program can travel between San Francisco and Tokyo Haneda, the more convenient airport to Tokyo, or Vancouver-Narita using up to 50% fewer miles in business class than without this award special.
The number of required miles to travel in business is 50000 miles and in economy 30000. You can also mix business and economy class. These awards are valid only on JL (Japan Airlines) operated non-stop flights and only between these cities.
You can book your flight starting on October 18th. The valid travel dates for these discounted awards are between November 1st, 2011, and February 29th, 2012.
There is no other way to book these awards than by calling AA, and pay the partner award ticketing fee. You can use either British Airways or Qantas websites to check the award availability on JL. Unfortunately AA.com doesn’t show up any partner award availability.
