I was really impressed with Japan Airlines when I first flew down from Narita to Singapore on flight 711. The arrival time for JAL 711 was 12:30am and I was going to be flying back on the same plane from Singapore to Narita at 1:55am on JAL 710. After spending ample time in three different airport lounges in Terminal 1 of Singapore’s Changi International Airport, I was ready to head back to the United States via Tokyo.

I tried my best to try to get upgraded from Economy Class to Business Class, but I had no luck again. The agents have no buy up policy for JAL or upgrade power and will refer you to a change fee plus fare difference. Regardless, I was still happy to have an exit row seat due to being an oneworld emerald member.
The Boeing 767-300 JAL economy class cabin is in a 2-3-2 configuration.
I quickly found my exit row window seat in 45A and the amenities were a small pillow and blanket.
I was surprised at how much legroom and space there was in the exit row. The in-flight entertainment system is top notch as well.
This was a red-eye service, so everything was served pretty fast. The flight attendant passed out rice crackers and a choice of beverage. I had a coke with ice to go with the savory rice crackers.
There was even hot towel service in economy class which is pretty rare.
The red eye meal was actually a breakfast dish which consisted of an omelet with potatoes and grilled vegetables. It was accompanied with a side salad, bread, yogurt, fruit, and green tea.
Afterwards, I went to the lavatory and was delighted to see a toothbrush amenity kit with toothpaste.
Before arrival in Tokyo, the flight attendant served a pound cake pastry with a choice of beverage. I had coke with ice to wash down the delicious pound cake.
This was my second flight with Japan Airlines and I was impressed with the professional flight attendants. The service was quick, efficient, and always presented with courtesy. They treat every customer in economy class with respect and I can see why people love flying with JAL.
