That was my experience too.Service was OK. After the lunch service the staff basically completely disappeared. Definitely not proactive....
My favourite moment was also JAL F.I was trying to sleep but was tossing and turning.So the blanket was in a mess.When the FA passed by she noticed this and very nicely tucked me in.I thought I shouldn't open my eyes!That was my experience too.
My fav example of proactive staff was on JL yeas ago on a 747. I was in Y, and once the meal service was finished, a couple of FAs sat in their seats at the emergency exits (facing me), and just waited serenely, until someone pressed a call button, and they'd jump up immediately and go and serve that customer.... was very entertaining to watch!
Extraordinary. Or, just doing their job...
There is some waiting period... it will tell you on the seat selection page if you are too early. The good seats do fill up fast on the sectors out of TPE to Europe. Getting in early is key.
Unless you have an urgent need, I would suggest the window seats - stacked if you like.Does anybody have any thoughts as to the best seats for a couple?
I'm assuming one of the middle ones?
Thanks Dr, I will aim for the 2nd row onwards at the front sectionUnless you have an urgent need, I would suggest the window seats - stacked if you like.
I would avoid the first row as the crew use the storage area built into the area frequently.
I would also suggest the front section of the cabin as this gives you access to more toilets.
And in case you weren't aware, there were no overhead bins in the centre of the plane on my flight. Means, that although there is still adequate room, the bins are only on the window sides of the plane and competition for space is more tight than I've experienced with other J flights.Thanks Dr, I will aim for the 2nd row onwards at the front section
