Fancy Famous Fantasy Friday: Japan Airlines First Class
I’m starting a new weekly series: Fancy Famous Fantasy Friday. Each Friday Miles and I will explore hotels, locations, planes, cabins, etc that are fancy, famous, and a fantasy…at least at this point. The objective isn’t to set a timeline on these places or experiences, but to implant them into the psyche. We believe in a little thing called Imaginaction: Imagine + Action. You can not realize your dreams without having them in the first place. This week’s Fancy Famous Fantasy Friday is one that I’ve been wanting to experience for a long time and soon will: Japan Airlines First Class
I’ve wanted to fly JAL First Class for a few years now.
In fact…that was my goal last year, but we ended up only finding avail on AA’s old Flagship First. Not the same experience by a mile. So using my term Imaginaction I kept setting my sights on flying in Japan Airlines First. When the news came out that AA was devaluing their award chart in March of 2016 and award prices would skyrocket to 110k one way from 67,500 from Asia 2, I swung into action. I knew I’d been to Japan, and the odds were that if I were to fly them it would be to connect to another city outside of Japan or Korea, and I’d need to lock in some Asia 2 award rates at the 67,500 price. That’s when Dave and I booked arbitrary dates to fly back from Hanoi and ended up making an entire trip so that we could fly JAL First. Where there’s will…right?
Here’s what we’re looking forward to most!
I just think this thing look so comfy, especially with a nice mattress pad.
With mattress pad options and large tv to watch! 23 inches!!!
I’m looking forward to trying either the western or Japanese options. Both look great and come from accomplished chefs
And they serve Salon 2004 champagne. It can be $200+ a bottle. I mean…
And try and rare sakes
And of course for relaxing times, make Suntory Time! SuntoryHibiki 17
And I want to enjoy this all in some luxurious and free PJs + slather fine potions on my skin
