Japan Airlines JAL BUSINESS CLASS Tokyo to New York



#japanairlines #jal #businessclass #jfk #hnd #japan #すごい 

Overall Impression:

Japan Airlines' Sky Suite Business Class product has been out for a few years now, but I've never had the chance to try it until now. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the seat was. There are 49 JAL Sky Suites (a.k.a. B.E. Aerospace's Apex Suite) business class seats on the Boeing 777-300ER, which are configured in a 2-3-2 layout. I was initially worried that the seat might feel cramped because of the dense layout, but my worries went away as soon as I sat in the seat. The shoulder and legroom were more than adequate for me. The seat reclines to a full flat bed. In addition to the supplied full size pillow and duvet, the crew also places an airweave mattress on the bed upon request, which made the bed super comfortable. The window seats are notably more private than the aisle seats, but the aisle seats have an extra side storage compartment which the window seats lack. The food were all catered from Haneda which means that they were excellent quality and the crew did a good job in the presentation. Service was efficient and polite, but the crew felt a bit disconnected and cold to non-Japanese passengers. My only biggest gripe with this product is the lack of overhead air nozzles considering JAL keeps their cabin a bit too warm for my liking, the air vents would have made a big difference. Please join me and let's fly with JAL's business class.

What I liked:

JAL First Class Lounge at Haneda Airport - The JAL First Class Lounge in HND is one of my favorite lounges in the Oneworld Alliance. We have access to the lounge via our Oneworld Emerald status. As you can see from the video, there's plenty of food and beverage options including made to order hot food. There's also plenty of seating, including a smoking room for those who smoke.

The Seat - The seats offers plenty of shoulder and legroom space and reclines into a full flat bed. The window seats takes the cake for privacy and aisle wins for storage space.

The food - Onboard catering was excellent, especially if you like Japanese food. I ordered the Japanese lunch set and it was amazing and very nicely presented. You can also order from the anytime dining menu at any given time during the flight.

The onboard service - The flight attendants delivered excellent and polished service during the flight. Though the service was not as warm as other Asian carriers, I still think the crew was well intentioned and eager to please. I was proactively offered drink refills and the crew always responded to my please and thank yous. :)

What I didn't like:

The IFE - This plane uses JAL's Magic V Entertainment system. Sadly, it seems you can only navigate the IFE content using the touchscreen remote, which I'm not real fond of. There were a good amount of new movies, TV and Audio content, and even some games.

The cabin temperature and no air nozzles - JAL is notorious for having a very warm cabin which is not everyone's cup of tea. I personally like a cooler cabin, which more conducive to sleep. Sadly, this flight was a bit too warm for me, and air nozzles would have helped me cool down.

It was OK...I guess:

The onboard bar - During the flight, the crew sets up a walk-up bar near the galley for some self-service snacks and beverages. Sadly the bar was very basic with just a few selections or snacks and wines, unlike other carrier's very extensive snack selections.

Japan Airlines First Class 777 Tokyo Narita to New York JFK

Japan Airlines's first class is one of my favorite first class products. As with all Japanese airlines the service is refined and elegant from the lounge to the end of the flight. The crew on this flight were extremely passenger oriented and proactive. They anticipated our needs and did frequent checks in the cabin to see if we needed any refills or food. Despite the long flight, their attitudes remained cheerful and perky which I really find amazing since it is so easy to get exhausted on long haul flights. I really appreciated one particular FA who spent a lot of time chatting with me and getting to know me. She offered Japan Airlines branded gifts to take home which was a nice personal touch.
There are some changes I noticed on this flight since my prior first class trip 2 years ago. There is no longer a cloth Loewe amenity kit. The amenity kit is now by Porsche Design and the products has been trimmed in quantity and quality (Hainan Airlines offers a better stocked kit). The pajamas were a limited edition also by Porsche Design available from March - June 2017.

From the moment you walk into the lounge you are welcomed by a staff member who personally go over the details of your trip and help inform you of any gate changes. You are then welcomed into the lounge by another staff member who follows to your seat and brings you a hot towel and a drink. The lounge in the main terminal has a sushi bar, which has a limited selection of freshly made sushi. The food buffet was plentiful and had lots of very tasty dishes, however I did find the food in the ANA suite lounges to more interesting and delicious.
I personally enjoy JAL's seat much more than ANA's boxy Suites. It is easier to view out of the window and if you are traveling with someone, the aisle seats are also more conducive to conversation since you are literally boxed in in ANA's seats.
The food onboard is definitely an experience. Everything was beautifully presented. The flavors were very interesting. The caviar course was not accompanied by the usual sides. Rather the rice wafers and the egg yolk cream formed a unique savory flavor which when mixed with the salty caviar was truly a unique and tasty combination. The desserts were especially good including the lychee yogurt sauce and the condensed milk ice cream. It wasn't as overpoweringly sweet as expected but fruity, refreshing, and creamy.
Overall, this was a perfect first class flight with excellent service from the ground to the air and delicious food at every minute. I especially appreciate the effort the crew put into their service. I honestly can't wait to fly with Japan Airlines again.


Japan Airlines Business Class flight review, onboard the Boeing 777-200ER JAL SKY SUITE III cabin, as flight JL711 from Tokyo (Narita) to Singapore, including a look at JAL Sakura Lounge. Full JL711 flight report:

This flight takes 7 hours and 25 minutes, with an oshibori served and water bottles given during the boarding. After take-off, it was an exceptional fine dining experience with Japan Airlines' BEDD (SKY AUBERGE by JAL) inflight dining. The Japanese menu option I had was divine and service polite and with a smile. I loved the privacy the JAL SKY SUITE III seat offers, as well as the convenience in the several stowage compartments and charging ports within arm's reach. It was a delightful and memorable experience with Japan Airlines Business Class.

Japan Airlines First Class Suites - JFK to NRT

This video hosted by Jayme Drummond (Carioca NoMundo) with subtitles in English - shows the experience on Japan Airlines First Class from JFK to Narita Airport in Tokyo. The flight duration on the the Boeing 777-300 is approximately 14h30min. Japan Airlines, a One World member, is the most well know Japanese airlines and it's fist class is a true luxury experience. They provide both Japanese and Western menus, a huge selection of wines, spirits and sakes. Pijamas, amenities and a proper bed turn down service are provided during the flight. The open suite full flat seats turn into a large bed and the flight attendant offer 2 options of mattress - soft and hard - according the passengers request. Called airwave system - apparently the same developed by NASA - this was one of the top things I had experience on this flight review. Hope you enjoy this video, subscribe and join Carioca NoMundo airlines and hotels Youtube channel. Flight number JAL05.

Este vídeo apresentado por Jayme Drummond - Carioca NoMundo - mostra a experiência a bordo da Primeira Classe da Japan Airlines do JFK para o Aeroporto de Narita, em Tóquio. A duração do voo no Boeing 777-300 é a aproximadamente 14h30min. A JAL é uma companhia aérea membro da One World e uma das mais renovadas cias japonesas. O voo em Primeira Classe a bordo do 777 é uma verdadeira experiência de luxo. Existe a opção de menu japonês, ocidental, uma extensa carta de vinhos além de sakês. Pijamas de algodão, amenities e um incrível serviço de preparar a cama antes de você dormir. As poltronas das suites de primeira classe reclinam 180o e ao preparar a cama, as comissárias oferecem dois tipos de colchão: um mais macio e outro mais rígido. Este sistema de colchão duplo é chamado Airwave e foi aparentemente desenvolvido pela NASA. Com certeza esta foi um dos pontos altos na avaliação deste voo.

Airline: Japan Airlines
Flight Number: JL34
Route: BKK-HND
Class: Business Class
Aircraft: Boeing 777-200ER
Registration: JA708J (Oneworld Livery)
Delivered: June 2004
Flight Duration: 6 hours 10 minutes
Distance: 2,852 Miles

Overall Impression:
Japan Airlines offers a solid business class product for the Bangkok to Tokyo route. I especially liked arriving at Haneda airport due to its close proximity to Central Tokyo. This flight is operated by a retrofitted Boeing 777-200ER with 3 classes of service ranging from business class, premium economy, and economy class. There are 42 Sky Suite III business class seats on this aircraft laid out in 1-2-1 reverse herringbone configuration. The seats recline into a fully flat bed and all seats offer direct aisle access. We were also pleasantly surprised that the cabin temperature was kept cool during the flight.

The crew on this flight delivered polished and proactive service, as expected. All our needs were taken care of and anticipated. The catering was also very good out of Bangkok, although the first meal service was just a light snack due to the late night departure of the flight. Instead, a full meal service is done 2 hours prior to landing.

Overall I was very happy with this flight and I definitely prefer the business class seats on this 777 over the 787-9 Dreamliner as they seem wider and the cabin felt less cramped.

What I liked:
The Food – In my experience, JAL consistently offers excellent catering in business class and this flight was no different. The first meal service was a light snack due to the late night departure of the flight. The snack was a chicken and pork satay dish, which was flavorful and delicious. 2 hours prior to landing, a full breakfast meal service was offered. I ordered the Japanese meal, which was artfully presented and equally as scrumptious. The food tasted fresh and the ingredients were high-quality.

The Seat – I’m a big fan of the reverse herringbone seat configuration due to the comfort and privacy they deliver. The JAL Sky Suite III seats on the 777 was comfortable and functional. The storage, table, and seat controls are all intuitively placed and within an arm’s reach. The seats also felt roomier and less cramped than those on JAL’s 787 Dreamliner. Amenities waiting at our seats included slippers, a pillow and duvet set, bottled water, headphones, and a JAL mini amenity kit. The business class lavatories also featured some toiletries and a toto bidet washlet.

What I didn't like:
JAL Sakura Lounge in Bangkok – JAL operates their own lounge in Bangkok. The lounge is a good size and offers plenty of seating while waiting for your flight. There are also shower rooms available. The food offerings were pretty limited, and I feel that the Cathay Pacific lounge next door offers a much better food and beverage selection.

It was OK...I guess:
The IFE – This aircraft features JAL’s Magic VI IFE system. The interface was simple and easy to navigate. There are a good amount of movies, TV shows, news, music, etc., but nothing compared to other carriers like AA that offers a plethora of media content.
The Cabin Temperature – JAL is notorious for keeping their cabin temperature very warm during the flight, which isn’t very conducive to sleep. Surprisingly, the crew kept the temperature relatively cool on this flight, which I very much appreciated. Now only if JAL fits their planes with air nozzles, I would be a much happier camper.

Flight Experience | JAPAN AIRLINES BUSINESS CLASS REVIEW | Narita to Melbourne JL773 | 787-8

Hi guys,

Welcome back to another episode of Two Hungry Diners!
We are back with another business class flight review. This video is taken last year in October when we flew back to Melbourne (MEL) from Narita (NRT) after spending two weeks holiday in Japan (so leave Japan). We had an amazing time in this flight - experiencing Japan hospitality at its best while leaving the country.

There were 42 business class seats in this 787-8 Dreamliner Aircraft, a 2-2-2 layout across 7 rows – four rows up front, followed by toilets and a galley, and then three further rows in a separate ‘mini cabin’. A slightly staggered layout gives all window seat passengers a walkway into the aisle. While this ‘Sky Suite II’ is not their latest product but the seat was still super comfortable and it is honestly one of the best in the business class seat we’ve tried so far. It also reclines to a fully flat 1.88-meter bed providing the best bed to sleep on during our flight.

The Japan Airlines business class menu is named ‘BEDD, Sky Auberge by JAL’. It’s undoubtedly one of the most impressive business class menus we experienced. All the food in this flight were outstanding, showing Japanese cuisine in every single way. The flavors are very subtle yet still pack a punch.

The crew was very efficient and friendly, displaying quintessentially Japanese hospitality. Overall, we really enjoyed this flight making our Japan trip an unforgettable experience.

Japan Airlines JAL Sky Suite Business Class Boeing 767 Manila to Tokyo 日本航空ビジネスクラス マニラ=東京成田

Check out the blog for the full review:

Overall Impression: Overall, I thought this flight was very good. For a 4 hour flight, the seat was quite comfortable, and so was the bed. The included amenities were also sufficient. Where I feel JAL really stands out from the rest is the food. The in-flight meal was absolutely delicious! The presentation and food quality were also very much en pointe. The beverage selection was also pretty extensive. The IFE selection was pretty good with plenty of content to keep you occupied. My only real complaint is the cabin temperature. It literally felt like we were in a flying sauna, and it was impossible to even take a short nap, because it was too hot! The other downside was the lack of a pre-departure beverage service, which may or may not be a problem to some passengers. I would give this flight a good 7 out of 10.
