Hi Tom, I am not the top expert on JL by any means, but I have been following the news on their discussions with DL and AA, and on the government task force charged with restructuring and saving JL. I believe I read somewhere that the government will not allow JL to fail. Plus, you must have seen already the lists of routes to be cut in separate threads on this forum. I will venture to say that you will be safe if you book with JL if it is your best option in terms of routes, stops, duration of layovers, fares, mileage accrual, etcetera. If you are still worried, consider using a credit card for the booking and maybe paying for travel insurance (I have seen it on cheaptickets.com for example, at a nominal price). Most of all, enjoy your December skiing trip and write a report.
Well, a bit more than "nil" but FAR less than 1%. We're only talking about a few months down the road, they will still be here. IF--and this is a big IF--they did go broke, they wouldn't suddenly disappear. They woud file for reorganization and continue to operate as normal.

JAL is pushing forward with self-revival plans and supporting measures from the Japanese government. At the moment, there are absolutely no concerns about bankruptcy. JAL will survive, and you can be assured about that!
