When 2 Sectors Have Different Seasonalities

If the 1st sector has a different seasonality to the 2nd sector, the required mileage for each seasonality will be combined.

  • (Example) Roundtrip between Tokyo and Osaka with flights in different seasons

    • The symbol "-" indicates the destination

    1st sector (Tokyo-Osaka): Departs on November 25, 2018 (high season); Basic sector mileage: 280 miles

    2nd sector (Osaka-Tokyo): Departs on December 23, 2018 (regular season); Basic sector mileage: 280 miles

    • STEP 1 Confirm Departure Date Seasonalities

      Go to the seasonality chart to check the applicable season(s) (low, regular, high season) based on the respective departure dates for your outbound and return flights.

      November 25, 2018 = Regular Season; December 23, 2018 = High Season

    • STEP 2 Confirm the Sector Mileage

      Go to Required Mileage Charts (1 Sectors) and check the sector mileage under Quick Summary of Required Mileage.

      1st sector: 280 miles (0-300 itinerary miles range)

      2nd sector: 280 miles (0-300 itinerary miles range)

    • STEP 3 Confirm Required Mileage

      Using the Required Mileage Chart (1 Sectors), confirm the required mileage based on the mileage ranges and seasons.

      For the 1st sector (0-300 itinerary miles range in regular season), 6,000 miles are required for award redemption.

      For the 2nd sector (0-300 itinerary miles range in high season), 7,500 miles are required for award redemption.

      Required Mileage

      6,000 miles+7,500 miles=13,500 miles

Required Mileage Charts

When 2 Sectors Have Different Seasonalities

If a 4-sector itinerary involves flights to/from outlying islands in Okinawa Prefecture (Miyako or Ishigaki) with a connection in Naha, and the sectors have different seasonalities, 25% of the required mileage for each respective sector will be used to calculate the itinerary mileage (the total of each basic sector mileage).

  • (Example) Roundtrip between Tokyo and Ishigaki via Naha with flights in different seasons

    • The symbol "-" indicates the destination

    1st sector (Tokyo-Okinawa): Low season (L); Basic sector mileage: 984 miles

    2nd sector (Okinawa-Ishigaki): Regular season (R); Basic sector mileage: 247 miles

    3rd sector (Ishigaki-Okinawa): Regular season (R); Basic sector mileage: 247 miles

    4th sector (Okinawa-Tokyo): Regular season (R); Basic sector mileage: 984 miles

    • STEP 1 Calculate the Total Basic Sector Mileage

      See the mileage chart to check the basic sector mileage for each sector, and then calculate the total basic sector mileage.

      984 miles (1st sector) + 247 miles (2nd sector) + 247 miles (3rd sector) + 984 miles (4th sector) = 2,462 miles

    • STEP 3 Confirm Departure Date Seasonalities

      Go to the seasonality chart to check the applicable season(s) (low, regular, high season) based on the respective departure dates for your outbound and return flights.

      • The symbol "-" indicates the destination

      1st sector (Tokyo-Okinawa): Low season (L)

      2nd-4th sectors (Okinawa-Ishigaki-Okinawa-Tokyo): Regular season (R)

    • STEP 4 Confirm Required Mileage

      Using the Required Mileage Charts (4 Sectors Involving Okinawa's Outlying Islands) , confirm the required mileage based on the mileage ranges and seasons.

      For the first sector (2,001-4,000 itinerary miles range in low season), 17,000 miles are required for award redemption.

      For the second sector (2,001-4,000 itinerary miles range in regular season), 20,000 miles are required for award redemption.

      For the third sector (2,001-4,000 itinerary miles range in regular season), 20,000 miles are required for award redemption.

      For the fourth sector (2,001-4,000 itinerary miles range in regular season), 20,000 miles are required for award redemption.

      As the itinerary includes different seasons, the required mileage for each sector should be divided by 4 and the resulting amounts should then be combined.

      Required Mileage

      (17,000 miles / 4 =)4,250 miles + (20,000 miles / 4 =)5,000 miles + (20,000 miles / 4 =)5,000 miles + (20,000 miles / 4 =)5,000 miles = 19,250 miles
