    Hey Chris! Looking into this direct of JA site - see some things about fuel surcharges. Can you shine a light on that if you know anything about it? Cheers

       Chris_Myden on December 5th, 2022

    Hi Pete,

    Many airlines list 'fuel surcharges' as one of their various taxes and fees. The airlines can essentially set this number to whatever they want. One airline might set their fuel surcharge to $300 for a flight from Vancouver to Tokyo. Another airline might set their fuel surcharge to $200 for a flight on the exact same route. It's supposed to represent the increasing cost of fuel.

    So the bottom line is you always want to compare prices between airlines after all taxes and fees. That's the only price that matters. The price is $788 CAD roundtrip after all taxes and fees (including the fuel surcharge).

       Juan on December 7th, 2022

    Hey Chris! Is this deal available for just YVR > NRT? No luck so far on G Flights or the JAL website. Thanks

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on December 7th, 2022

    Have a great time Catherine and Ania!

    Juan: No, unfortunately not. JAL's flights from Vancouver to 'just Tokyo' and back are currently priced between $1480 and $1999 roundtrip.

    Hello Chris!

    This is a good deal thanks a lot! A quick question if you dont mind please: do you know if this ticket is cancellable or changeable with some fees?

    Thanks,
    Paige

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on December 7th, 2022

    Hi Paige,

    This page on the Japan Airlines website shows the difference between the 3 levels of economy fares.

    Special Saver - non refundable, fees to make changes
    Special - non refundable, no fees to make changes
    Flex - refundable, no fees to make changes

    These prices are the Special Saver. With roundtrip flights on the JAL website you can choose the higher levels (which cost more of course). But I've noticed with Multi-City flights there doesn't seem to be a way to choose online. You might be able to call JAL and ask if there's a way for them to book Special or Flex over the phone.

    Hey, Chris! Do you know if it is possible to book this multi-city but instead stay in Tokyo? Would the rest of the flights be voided?

    Has Marissa been here?
       Marissa on December 10th, 2022

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the info for the great flight deal.

    Regarding the cancellation policy, does the following apply for this deal? (Ie. are flights eligible for free rebooking)?

    https://www.jal.co.jp/ar/en/info/travelalerts/200423/

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on December 10th, 2022

    Hi Sean, yes, unfortunately all airlines usually automatically cancel the remainder of your ticket once a leg is intentionally missed. This article attempts to explain why they do this.

    Hi Marissa, in that article if you click under 'Some fares are available with no change fee for travel from the U.S., Canada and Mexico.' - it takes you to a page that lists 3 different types of economy fares. Have a look above at my reply to Paige with some info on the 3 types.

    Has Marissa been here?
       Marissa on December 10th, 2022

    Thank you Chris for answering my question. It is clear that any changes will incur a fee.

    Does anyone know how much it would cost to make a change? There are so many pages on JAL and it seems to vary depending on where the ticket was purchased. I couldn't find this info myself. Thanks!

    Has Jessica been here?
       Jessica on December 13th, 2022

    Hi Chris! The deal for April/ May is showing up as $1,400 when I click the link for April/ May - do you know if the deal is gone now?

    Thank you so much!

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on December 13th, 2022

    Hi Jessica, unfortunately it does look like the April and May dates are gone. September and October dates are still working.

    Has Chris_Myden been here?
       Chris_Myden on December 15th, 2022

    Just to mention that limited April and May dates are working again. It seems to only be available if you use April 17th for the first leg. And May 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16 for the third leg.

    Has H been here?
       H on December 16th, 2022

    All dates are gone again in April.
