    Answered Best Economy class

    Indeed, but it's difficult to book JAL at a reasonable price two weeks out. Personally, I'd go QR if it's not on the 787. At any rate, the OP should jump onto ITA Matrix and see what's on offer.

    JAL business class Melbourne - Tokyo. Is it worth it?

    A spot of thread bumpage to resolve the ongoing question of what config the 787 is in on the MEL-NRT run going forward. JAL has fantastic connections flying MEL-NRT-HEL and there's usually an AY codeshare waiting at the end to whisk you off to wherever you need to get to in northern or central...
