There are no bad seats, hard and soft product are both phenomenal. If you like Japanese food I’d recommend to call or email to reserve the Japanese meal or select seat in row 1. I’ve been on one flight where F was full will all Japanese pax apart from myself and they didn’t have enough Japanese meals. Having said that the Western choice is almost as good (best steak I had in the air).
Hope you get Salon but if not I’m sure Cristal will do
If you feel like refreshment after alcohol they offer special chilled tea (served in wine glass). Also try their coffee, you’ll not find better one in the air.
The bed is super comfortable, on par with QF and CX.
Can’t praise them enough, you’ll have a great experience!
QF no brainer for me. The JL biz bed is cramped and very short in comparison.I am looking to book the same (US-HND ticket on JL in F). In the same itinerary, I have the option of choosing HND-SYD flights in J, either on JL or QF. They both are overnight flights, on 777 and 787 respectively. What do people recommend?
Done! Thanks for the input.QF no brainer for me. The JL biz bed is cramped and very short in comparison.
Is it possible to ask them to change the temperature? On VA 777 in J, crew could adjust temperature of each row individually (I only ever asked them to adjust it in their old-style J). I wonder if JL crew are open to do that for F?WRT the OP, JL First is excellent. My only criticism is the cabin temperature - like most Asian carriers they think 24-26 degrees is suitable for sleeping.
I've twice (from Biz) queried the cabin temperature to the JL CSM who agreed both times and adjusted (I could feel it).Oh no, that’s hot.
QF say that JL has changed the coding for their Award seats after 1 Apr.Still waiting for an eticket. They say it should come tomorrow. They give me all sorts of reasons - QF Acquire is playing up; JL changed their F class; it’s too early on the schedule to actually get the eticket. Booked for late April. Weird?
We took 2A/2K and it was fine. The crew would take stuff to TV instead of me walking around to him.Thank you for this, I am booked SYD/HND JL F next April. Selected seats yesterday.
1A & 1K blocked out, as we both like window seats have gone with 2A & 2K - well that was my only choice lol.
QF say that JL has changed the coding for their Award seats after 1 Apr.
I have spent weeks trying to get this sorted and now stuck with one way flights to CDG that I am unable to add any other bookings too.
As a couple we are booked in 1D and 1G - with the hope that the Salon is served in Row 1 first
I have the forward sectors eTicketed but stuck in the twilight zone trying to add anything beyond due to this ridiculous F Coding issue between QF and JL.Just spent 55 mins on the phone and was able to add my next sector. Had to pay the cc for the third time as the authorisation is taking so long it lapses. Was assured an etkt will be forthcoming. Will believe it when I see it.
