Jetstar Japan A321LR Cabin

Review: Jetstar Japan A321LR from Fukuoka to Tokyo Narita

After a decade of operating an all-Airbus A320 fleet, Jetstar Japan put its first Airbus A321LR into operation on July 1, 2022.

After flying from Tokyo to New York in JAL first class and spending a day in the city, it was time to make my way to Europe. With Vienna being essentially my “home” airport back when I was living in Slovakia, trying Austrian Airlines’ long-haul business class was on my bucket list for a long …

JAL 777-300ER First Class Seat

Review: JAL 777-300ER First Class from Tokyo Haneda to New York JFK

With limited award availability between Japan and Europe, I decided to start my most recent trip with a flight to New York.

On our way back from Europe to Japan back in February, my wife and I traveled in Finnair’s business class from Vienna to Tokyo Narita via Helsinki.
