Do not fly Japan Airlines (JAL)

November 22, 2007 4:50 pm

I usually fly Cathay Pacific / Dragon Air when visiting Asia.  On my latest trip I decided to fly JAL to give it a try.   My conclusion after of 25 hrs of service is DO NO FLY JAL.  The seats are cramped, the fuselage has a high temperature, the food is sub-par, drink selection is limited and finally there are no snacks.    JAL is also ranked 40th out of airlines operating 747s when it comes to the age of the 747 fleet, averaging an age of 15.7 years.

On the other hand, the last time I flew Cathay Pacific it had a much more comfortable seating configuration, cooler cabin, much better food (including ice cream), lot more drinks and self-serve snack area.  What was JAL expecting you to do, when you are on a 12 hr flight with no options of getting a snack to eat in-between meals.
