Japan Airlines Business Class – Tokyo Narita to Sydney (JL 771) – Boeing 787-9

After coming off a British Airways flight from London Heathrow (BA 5), I head to the Japan Airlines First Class lounge to freshen up before my flight to Sydney. I spend a few hours here reviewing the lounge environment/ambience, seating, staff service, food/drink offerings, shower/spa and business facilities.

I head to the gate early to board JL 771, which is a Japan Airlines Boeing 787-9. Priority boarding is well organised for Business Class and Oneworld status guests, but there are a LOT of them! The B787-9 has 44 SkySuite seats spread out over two Business Class cabins. I review the SkySuite seat in immense detail throughout the flight, with a focus on the different seating positions, storage spaces, legroom, seat space, IFE, lighting and so forth. During the 9 hour flight, two meals are served – dinner and breakfast – and I enjoyed how there are both Japanese and Western food options. Throughout the flight, passengers have access to a dine-anytime menu with various of meals and snacks to choose from. I get to sample the lie-flat bed on this red-eye flight. Although the cushioning of the seat and pillow is on the firm side, I still get a good night’s rest. The SkySuite is very private due to the hardshell and wall partitions surrounding the seat. A decent amenity kit by Zero Halliburton is provided, as well as a Japan Airlines jacket (not pyjama) to keep you warm throughout the flight

Although the flight departed Tokyo late, the pilots did an impressive job making up for lost time such that we landed early in Sydney. Being a Business Class passenger, I was able to disembark the plane early to be reunited with my priority-tagged luggage.

Laid-Back Flights says:

The product looks quite good in my oppinion! The staggered seating offers a very good amount of privacy at the window seats, doesn´t it? Very nice flight report and thanks for sharing, Eddie! Best regards from Munich

Unknown Traveller says:

Great looking flight, but boy that sure looked like a ton of food they give you. Can’t complain about the service well done JAL

Dat Bacon says:

Second Comment and great video!

Mozez Cotsoglou says:

I enjoy watching your vlogs, they are so detailed….keep up the g8 work : )

Patrick Woo says:

I believe JAL’s software (customer service) is top 10% in airline industry. However, I really don’t like its hardware (2-2-2 business class seat configuration) for long haul flight. SQ and CX are used 1-2-1 for all tran Pacific flight and I love it.
