I have flown on Japan Airlines (JAL) many times and have reviewed my Japan Airlines Business Class flight reviews. My trip First Class reviews 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 amongst 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.

Japan Airlines is part of the Oneworld Alliance which also includes British Airways so if you collect Avios air miles you can spend them on both British Airways and Japan Airlines. I love to fly British Airways in European Business Class. Contact me for a referral for the American Express Gold Card which will get you 22,000 Amex bonus points, 2,000 more than the usual offering (when you spend 2,000GBP in your first three months). You can collect other airline miles too.
