Boarding was easy. clean plane, crew was very friendly. I was very concerned though, when we banked left and did a complete circle in the air. An explanation from the captain would have been terrific. I made sure I was the last one to leave the plane and asked him about it when I saw him at the exit. He told me what happened but I would have liked to know while it was happening. Besides that, the coke and pretzels were divine. :)
Our flight was cancelled and rebooked for 6 hours later. We did not get notification of this change. My gluten free meal was not on the flight that was changed. All the airline reps that I spoke with were very unhelpful.
Announcements were made in Japanese, English, and Thai. We were warned about turbulence several times in all languages. Flight to Bangkok from Tokyo had a USB port to charge my iphone, but flight back to Tokyo did not. Service from cabin attendants was excellent. One apologized twice for running out of the lunch selection I wanted to have, even though I was happy with the chicken curry. Courteous staff and pleasant experience, even with a competitive airfare. I would fly JAL again.
All flight attendants were very friendly. Their polished appearance showed a level of professionalism that can sometimes be lacking with certain airlines. The seats featured foot and neck rests which provided some extra comfort during our long flight. Having a large selection of movies to watch in my personal monitor was fantastic. If I had the opportunity to choose Japan Airlines again, I definitely would.
Our flight from Bangkok to Tokyo had WiFi for purchase, but our flight from Tokyo to Hawaii did not. Had I known, I would not have purchased a 24 hour plan. There was some turbulence during the flight (some continued for over 30 minutes). I am used to the captain or crew of the plane making an announcement to passengers about what is happening and when to expect "relief", but there was no communication. Just an added touch to make passengers feel better.
