I really liked the JAL SKY SUITE and JAL service that much, despite a 2-3-2 layout, it was hands-down the most comfortable and spacious business class I’ve ever flown. I haven’t flown Cathay’s new business product yet, but in my opinion this beats out their old business as well as Singapore’s current business offering (hard product). I originally opted for an aisle, but after reading some reviews, decided to go for the window seat which was extremely private thanks to the divider screen yet still maintains a direct aisle path. I’m really happy that I choose the JAL SKY SUITE over ANA’s staggered business which is a standard business product on many airlines. I’ll have a full review in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, check out a few pictures:
Spacious window seat with direct aisle access cut-out and large 23 inch TV (same as in First). The suite set-up reminded me of similar first class set-ups on several airlines (see pic 3)
Amenities included Panasonic noise canceling headphones, mattress pad, satellite wi-fi, JAL PJ top, in-flight art gallery, and of course TOTO toilets.
In addition to the standard dinner (first two pics), there is anytime ordering all flight long until 1.5 hours prior to landing. All orders are placed on your handset and mine were always delivered within 3-5 minutes…impressive!
Again, I loved the privacy and the roominess of my suite, the huge tv, touchscreen food and snack ordering, and the amazing service. Full review coming soon. Needless to say, JAL’s SKY SUITE was 100x better than AA’s soft and hard First Class product on the outbound. It was also much nicer than my last JAL business trip in 2010 with their SHELL FLAT (not really flat) NEO product.
