My JAL summer vacation


I am taking my summer vacation and therefore there will be less regular updates until I return from my trip next month. I am pretty sure there will be plenty to write about since all of my flights are on JAL :) Let's see if I remember to take pictures before I start eating my meals this time :)



  1. Enjoy your trip, Pak! I just booked an award in C for next month to Hong Kong, flying out of SFO and back thru JFK, odd routing maybe but the only way I could do it without waitlisting. Finally get the chance to check out the Shell Flat Neo.

  2. Thanks Black Adder!

    I know, seems like most of the dates require waitlisting now. Either JMB members clear out the C awards or JAL hold all the reward inventory to avoid having too many people using the super discounted upgrade.

    I still have a normal upgrade award on my return flight and haven't switched it to the super discounted one yet, now I am not sure if I can do it anymore since my return flight require waitlistinng...this sucks

    Enjoy the new Neo seats but I bet the extra storage in Neo seats can't beat my side storage on 744 upper deck window :P

  3. Have a great time and definitely take pics of the food! We booked our Hong Kong/Bali flights for October -- I'll need your food/hotel advice when you get back :)

  4. Congrats on securing the J seats! I have posted pictures of my LAX-NRT flight already :)
