Japan Airlines in Premium Economy class

I had originally booked in economy class with my BA avios, however when I checked in for my flight at Bangkok airport the checkin agent upgraded me to their Premium Economy class free of cost. Also, the agent checked-in my bags for my onwards journey on Qatar Airways. What a wonderful customer service by JAL in Japan.

The seat in JAL premium economy is a recliner, very similar to the US domestic first class seat. Quite convenient and comfortable for a 5-6 hour hop.


Decent amount of legspace. The good point is that as it is a shell seat, the person ahead of you does not recline or disturb you at any moment.

Amenity kit in PE.

Menu for today’s flight. Even in premium economy you receive a printed menu.


Food was decent.

With nice views of Mt Fuji, during our arrival into Tokyo
