Welcome to The Australian Traveler. Despite the name, this site focuses on both domestic and international travel. The space here is business travellers and av geeks to share their experiences and interests around travel.
In a bit of an unexpected turn since Virgin’s announcement that it’d review its entire network for profitability, the airline is almost certain to be gifted one of the two additional landing rights for Haneda Airport in Tokyo.
JAL has a number of different business class seat variants flying internationally from the front facing APEX Sky Suite to the Herringbone Sky Suite III. Fortunate enough on a recent trip to the US via Japan, allowed the opportunity to fly JAL a handful of times in J class. TAT was keen to see if the business seat in their Herringbone Sky Suite III stacked up to the awards hype that JAL had garnered for the last few years.
Earlier this year Fiji Airways announced they would have be acquiring some A350s for the fleet in late 2019. Fat forward to the last quarter of the year and more details have emerged, particularly around their exciting new business class product.
American Airlines for me is a love hate relationship. Sometimes my experiences have been above and beyond whilst some I’d rather forget quickly. It’s such a shame to feel this way about an airline, especially when coming just off (and comparing to) an excellent product in Japan Airlines’ J class. Making the transfer between JAL to AA in Haneda was quiet seamless but was the flight experience on AA just as smooth?
