HND to SFO 777---Sky Suites?

Thinking of booking this flight in business class. JL says it is a 777-300ER. Do they all have the Sky Suites? Or this flight (JL #2 ) in particular? As it is an overnight flight, we want to be sure we have true "lie-flat" seats.

Definitely lie flat Sky Suites on this route.

Do note that this only about 8 hours gate to gate, sometimes less with an unfavorable wind. It doesnít give a whole lot of time for sleeping and enjoying JALís F product.

I doubt we will get F; I so rarely see it when I check for award seats each morning. Even J, which I am hoping for, looks scarce. Or already booked when I look at 7 am PST.

Is this a typo, or are you looking for seats 14 hours after release?

Sorry! I got JAL Suite (F) and JAL Sky Suite (J) mixed up.

I actually do not know how many hours after release I am looking, as I do not know the time of release in Japan. I have tried 4, 5, 6 am PST, as well as 7 am. That 4:00 am wake up is a little rough. Is there a better time to look? If 7 am PST is 14 hours too late, that implies release is at 5:00 pm PST. Much easier to check than 4 or 5 am!
