I was pretty excited to try JAL as I’ve heard good things. I don’t have any points or miles with Oneworld carriers so I transferred AMEX MR points to British Airways Avios during a 30% bonus. This flight typically is pretty expensive as it’s between the two popular close in airports popular with business travelers. Unfortunately, British Airways just increased the cost of redemption. I redeemed just 15,000 Avios (~12,000 AMEX MR with the 30% bonus) for this flight. However, the price has now gone up to 16,500 Avios.
