Question on Domestic Flights and Viewing Available Seats

Hi everyone,

While I'm in Japan I want to fly on JAL's 747s before they are retired. It looks like I'll be taking a HND-CTS return flight.

Two questions:
1. I noticed class J is only 1000 yen more. I think domestic class J only offers a bigger seat with no lounge access or any other perks. Is that right?

2. Is there a way to view available seats before booking? For my flight in Y I want to sit on the upper deck but want to make sure there are seats available!

Thanks.

1. Yes. Bigger seat and 10% more mileage if crediting to JL

2. You can make a dummy booking(not sure if it works on the english pages though). I can help you make some dummy booking if needed. Only Y seats are on the upperdeck.

You can do dummy booking on the English page too.

Your AA PLT status is equivalent to OW Sapphire; you'll have lounge access in all of JL's domestic lounges regardless of what class of service you booked.
