Japan Airlines has released substantial first class award availability on their routes between the U.S. & Japan for dates from now through next March. On many flights there are 3 or more seats available in first class.
American Airlines and Japan Airlines are OneWorld partners and a one-way fare between the U.S. & Japan is only 62,500 AAdvantage miles. If you connect to elsewhere in Asia, a one-way ticket costs only 67,500 AAdvantage miles.
Since Japan Airlines doesn’t normally release this much first class award inventory, this may be a mistake and probably won’t last long. You can search for availability on the British Airways website, but if your are using AA miles, you will have to call AAdvantage to book, since their website doesn’t show JAL availability.
For more info and options see this One Mile at a Time post.
