The foreigners? JAL? Please write more clearly.

The airline will offer 50,000 free return tickets for flights to select destinations between July 1 and Sept 30, with overseas members of JAL Mileage Bank eligible to apply from the end of February.

So, if you use your miles for purchasing a one way domestic ticket, JAL will give you the return ticket free.

Nice idea! I wonder which cities qualify?

Taxpayers' money will be used to pay for this.

Both? Either? It's a good thing for everyone concerned.

Except for low cost carriers, all standard airlines sell return tickets.

You can buy as well one-way ticket but it will be more expensive than the return one.

Thus I do not see any gift here.

The airline is collaborating on the campaign with the Japan Tourism Agency...

Uh-oh. JAL's deep ties and obligations to the government and the public agencies in the past are largely responsible for its numerous taxpayer-funded bailouts. I was under the impression after the last rescue that the airline pledged to become more "normal," ie, competitive and cost-conscious, as opposed to doing what the govt wants it do out of national interest, like promoting the Olympics.

If JAL has extra money sloshing about maybe they could put some of it in a fund to recompense the loyal shareholders whose investment turned into confetti when the company went under and was bailed out by the taxpayer.

One way tickets are expensive and sometimes more than a round trip.

It seems people here don't understand that a return ticket is out and back.

Example:

one way = Haneda to Sapporo.

return = Haneda to Sapporo, and then Sapporo to Haneda.

That's great, considering how expensive Japanese domestic routes are.
