F vs J on CGK-NRT

Another F vs J question. I'm looking at flights CGK-NRT and am considering two options, either a night flight in F or a day flight in J. This on a RTW ticket, so the cost will be the same for both. The F flight has a reduced meal service, but a full drinks list, while the day flight is standard J with a full meal. Would you take the night flight considering most of it will be spent sleeping and it arrives really early at NRT (0635) or the day flight to maximise the flying experience?

Thanks.

IMO a flight in F beats J anytime of the day, especially for this route since it is a long flight.

Night time F flight for sure. You will be able to get a fair amount of decent sleep on a short flight. Ask them to make up your bed as soon as airborne and order a good combination of things for breakfast to be served as late as possible before landing.
