In Tokyo/Haneda I used a designated First Class check in counter. After passing through the security checkpoint quickly I proceeded to the JAL First Class lounge. The lounge was very spacious, but crowded a bit, and offered a good selection of breakfast food and drinks. They also had shower rooms, a champagne-bar, a room with a kicker machine and a smoking room. I enjoyed the time during my stay in this lounge! After boarding the Boeing 777-300ER I was guided to the JAL Sky Suite 1A. The cabin was not fully booked, which was not too bad. The charming crew members in the First Class cabin introduced themselves with their names and offered some drinks before takeoff. The seat was really spacious and clean, but a bit outdated, which was not a problem for me at all. There was also waiting a red amenity kit from Porsche Design. Up in the air the service started with an amuse-gueule of my special preordered japanese vegetarian menu, followed by a very delicious multi-course special meal. Every time I was served a new plate or bowl the flight attendant explained to me what it is consisting of and also the meaning in japanese cuisine. I was really surprised of the friendliness and attentiveness of the airline staff, which I enjoyed pretty much! Concerning the drinks I decided to try after the french champagne a Pommard red wine, which also was from France. After meal service was over I was handed out a pyjama and I changed my clothes in the bathroom. In the meantime my seat was converted to a comfortable bed with a mattress and very soft sheets. By the way in the bathroom they had a typical japanese toilet with a lot of the famous functions toilets have in Japan. I had a very good sleep above the clouds, although I woke up and could order a noodle soup and a pot of tea. There was served another delicious vegetarian meal before arrival in London. I even could order some stuff from the regular menu at all times. Very special for japanese airlines is, that they offer a good selection of japanese drinks like different kinds of sake wines, which I also tried a glas or two from. All in all I have to say, that JAL is a reliable and safe japanese airline, which I definetly would fly again with! This First Class flight was one of the best experiences I made in this class of service not least because of the professionalism of the cabin crew members.
