787 not quieter but I have not done dB measurement), high humidity and lower cabin altitude does nothing for me. So a QF747 replaced by JQ787 would be a downgrade - correctly due to seat widthI dunno? 747s are noisy, old, run-down, less humidity. 787s new, quiet, high humidity to arrive in better shape. For economy the only downside is the seat width.
I haven't noticed any difference either, but my main concern is irrespective of the aircraft type that the seats are wide enough, pitch is OK and perhaps most of all that the cabin is not what I perceive as 'too hot.'787 not quieter but I have not done dB measurement), high humidity and lower cabin altitude does nothing for me...
Noise is a complicated subject because it is produced in varying frequencies some of which are within the human hearing range.I haven't noticed any difference either, but my main concern is irrespective of the aircraft type that the seats are wide enough, pitch is OK and perhaps most of all that the cabin is not what I perceive as 'too hot.'
So thank you for confirming what many suspect. It's just marketing hype. Grain of salt required.
A minor puff.No problems for air travellers from 21 April's Mt Agung, Bali eruption:

JQ international is predominantly/subtantially (as I understand it) staffed by Thai or Indonesian crew. Usually the CSM is Australian. So whatever the costs are they are less than Australian crew in $ terms and the conditions probably also worse.JQ68, the CGO - MEL (B788 VH-VKA) should arrive on Anzac Day, Thursday 25 April at 1336, 31 late.
The afternoon JQ17 (scheduled out at 1450 from MEL up to popular HKT) has been cancelled. This will be another inconvenience from B788 VH-VKJ's continuing unavailability as it sits (to use AFF oz-mark's term) impounded in KIX, where it has been on the ground since 29 March 2019. This is the sort of event that no transport operator's staff could plan for. It's a very long time for one aircraft to be suddenly unavailable. While the charters of a QF B744 (typically QF6403/6404 SYD - HNL and return) are an intragroup transaction, there are still extra costs to the QF Group, such as the how the B744 burns more kilograms of fuel per flight than a B788. Although a drop in the ocean when considered as a percentage of employees, staffing costs must have risen as it's impractical (and unfair) to ask JQ staff to suddenly go on leave.
dajop, when booking any sort of public transport it's way preferable that it's scheduled to operate daily.JQ 7 MEL-SIN on Sunday 28 April cancelled due to “engineering requirements”. Pax offered various alternatives (QF35 - which disappeared quickly - and QF37 plus options on JQ via DPS +/- a day ). Or cancel/reimbursement...
