TAM joins Oneworld Alliance on March 31, 2014, and JAL Mileage Bank already has a promotion for economy award redemptions on TAM flights between April 4 and October 3, 2014.
You receive 24% to 33% discount on number of JAL miles required for award redemptions that start at just 10,000 miles during the promotional period down from 15,000 miles.
You can access JAL’s web page for this offer here.
JAL TAM Discount Table
The discount depends of the award bucket based on the total number of miles flown including any surface segments.
Note that there are no fuel surcharges for flights originating from Brazil.
JAL often has economy award promotions for flights on partners. If you are planning to fly around South America, this offer can make sense.
