"loved the seating arrangement"

(Vietnam)

I flew from Tokyo to Honolulu and I loved the seating arrangement. It was a pleasant surprise as opposed to other airlines I often used. Ample space even at the economy class and comfortable ergonomic design. I could recline and stretch my legs and could cope with the 7 hour long flight. Also enough space for carry-ons and nice headset, comfortably resting on your head.

"lot of space in this seat"

(United Kingdom)

I was in the new economy class seat on Boeing 777. I had a lot of space in this seat. The seat was good for long flight, but seat could not recline much. TV screen was enough size to watch it and table was normal size. The seat storage was huge, but I wanted I bit more height on storage also upper compartments were fine.

"couldn't get comfortable"

(United States)

Not impressed with Japan Airlines Premium Economy seat. Looks fancy with hard shell and forward slide. Fancy concepts don't translate to comfort in real life. Couldn't find a comfortable position. Not much slide to speak of. Despite sleeping pills, couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep.

"extremely hard and uncomfortable"

(United States)

SFO-HND. My mom and I both had aisle seats in row 51. She is 5'2" and I am 5'9". The seat was extremely hard and uncomfortable. Additionally, the seat pockets barely open up, so it's hard to store anything other than paper, such as a water bottle, even the tiny ones they provide pre-flight! Leg room was quite decent and there was a footrest, somewhat making up for the rock hard seat.

"Seat recline good"

(Singapore)

HIJ-HND on JL 1612 on Y class. Unable to upgrade to J class as flight is near 100% full. Most passengers were working Japanese males probably on their way home to Tokyo. 2 rounds of drinks and inflight sales were made. Seat recline as good as GA 777-300ER. Were shown Japanese news and a clip of "Toy Story". The crew were pleasant and customer orientated. The toilets had paper cranes which symbolises the late Sadako Sasaki through the story of a thousand orgaimi cranes a symbol of innocent victims of war.

"very comfortable seat"

(Singapore)

NRT-CTS - very comfortable seat with good recline. It was advertised seat pitch of 38". Had a good nap on both sectors. Only overhead tv available for the short sector of 1.5 hrs. Upgrade to J class for 1000 yen is available upon check in. Good value for money.

"Great Premium Economy seats"

(United States)

Great newish Premium Economy seats on JAL's 777 international fleet feel like a US carrier's Business Class seats on 737/Airbus 320s! Great bigh res screen with very responsive quality content on tap. Food and drink was better than average and service was of high quality overall. For the LAX to NRT run in the future it's going to JAL until AA upgrades its worn out Asian fleet.

"upper class deck seat"

(Australia)

Go on the economy upper class deck seat (where possible) as it better and more comfortable than the lower deck economy class seats. You also get an added storage bin.

"seat did not have a footrest"

(Canada)

For an Economy Class Seat on a long-haul route (I was on a flight from Tokyo Narita-Vancouver) this was what I expected. Each seat had a personal television a fair amount of recline and a movable armrest. However unlike other seats I've seen the seat did not have a footrest. Also though I'm on the small side I still found it slightly difficult getting into the aisle.
