I have flown on Japan Airlines (JAL) many times and have reviewed their long haul First and Business Class flights. My trip reports can be found below.
Japan Airlines (JAL) offers a world-leading First class. In-flight, service is faultless with smiling faces. Staff are polite, professional and anticipatory. The food and the drinks menu is one of the best we have seen. The seat is oh so comfortable, especially in bed mode and the amenity kit is great – soft, snuggly pyjamas, a useful unisex kit plus gender-specific Shiseido face care kits. Why don’t more airlines provide the latter with cleanser, toner and moisturiser, which is definitely needed in the drying atmosphere of a plane? This is how long-haul travel should be.
Japan Airlines also ranks among my preferred airlines for Business Class. The seats are located in their own cocoon with high walls (earning them the designation “JAL Sky Suites”). The flatbed is almost as good as in First Class, and the food is mouthwatering. Japan Airlines codeshares with British Airways so you can sometimes book cheap tickets on JAL during British Airways sales.
If you fly on JAL from London’s Heathrow Airport (LHR) to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport (HND) in Business, you will be given access to the British Airways Galleries lounge in Terminal 3.
