Definitely not first time flying with Japan Airlines, JAL is our first choice every time flying in and out of Japan.
Back in February, we visited Japan again along with our family. In this blog, we will be sharing our experience flying Japan Airlines Premium Economy class from Narita to Kuala Lumpur.

Ground Staff/Service

The check-in process with the Japan Airlines ground staff was smooth and quick. There was hardly a long queue at the check-in counter, and this shows the efficiency of the ground crew on getting passengers to the gate.

Sakura Lounge

the Sakura Lounge at Tokyo (Narita) International Airport The Lounge is spacious, clean and tidy, overlooking the aerobridges and taxiways. They served Japanese style breakfast buffet (our flight was in the morning) and variety choices of beverages. It was a pretty good place to rest and wait for boarding.

Premium Economy Seat

The seating configuration in Premium Economy Class was 2-3-2 with total of 35 seats. My favourite part of the seat is that the seat backs in front of me do not recline backwards and the large leg room. These provides a more relaxing and luxurious personal space throughout the flights.


Another thing that I love about Japan Airlines is that they always provide the basic amenity items which we always need them during the flight, such as toothbrush set, moisture mask, earplugs, eye mask…. and also SLIPPERS.

In-flight meal and beverage

For the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo (Narita), the breakfast was served about 2-3 hours before landing as it was a midnight flight. However, for the flight from Tokyo (Narita), the lunch was served after take-off. They served beverages during the whole journey except during take-off and landing, so I never feel shy to ask for beverages.

In-flight entertainment

The sound quality of the headphones provided by them are good and it is noise-cancelling headphones. The headphones enhance the enjoyment of their movies and music and it is really comfortable for long-wearing listening. I did not feel any uncomfortable during the whole flight experience.
