I am unable to log on to the JL site unless I use my regional log in.
I assume that award.flights uses a global site but I can only log in with my regional site otherwise I get an error message, for example, “Members who are not registered in the xxxxxxx Region cannot log in from this screen.”
I don’t know if you can use an IP address or some other means to determine the correct logon site to use.
I never realized this but it looks like you need an “American Region” account.
Create a dummy US account and it should work.
This is new. I’ve never had the problem before. Is there any way you can add “Region” in as a Setting so that another account isn’t required?
Alternatively, could you create an award.flights account that everyone uses?
Adding “Region”- I probably could but it seems like a lot of work because I’d have to test that all the regional sites are the same.
Creating an global account for everyone to use? That won’t work – it’ll get blocked and/or not work at all.
The easiest solution is to just create a dummy US account
There appear to be only 4 regions:
Europe / Middle East / Africa
Asia / Oceania
Right, but if there are differences in the regional sites(I don’t actually know if there are), I’d need to test it for each of the sites which is a lot of work for not much gain.
I’m in the US, with a US ip (No VPNs) and for some reason it still opens to a JAL Japan regional page with the same errors as above.
Hmm. It should log you in to the US page.
If you go log in once yourself at the page http://www.jal.co.jp/en/jalmile/use/partner_air/p_jmb/application.html#tabs, does it still happen?
Although it wasn’t what I wanted to do, creating a dummy US region account worked for me.
