Confused on which Business Seat

Good afternoon all- Frequent flier, but 1st time booking JAL Biz class- I am so confused on what kind of Biz Class Seats I will get:

Sept 8 Flight #708 From BKK to NRT on 788 then NRT to SAN on flight # 066 on 788

Their website shows Sky Suite 787- But everything I am reading shows Shell Seats?

Anybody have any recent experience or can confirm?? If it's shell seats I may look for other options.

Thank you in advance

NRT-SAN was upgraded from Shell Flat Neo to Sky Suite this Spring. That is probably why everything you read doesn't mention Sky Suite. BKK-NRT on the other hand seems to be using Shell Flat Neo. I believe these web pages are pretty accurate except for irregular equipment swap:
Sky Suite: https://www.jal.co.jp/en/inter/servi.../skysuite.html
Shell Flat Neo: https://www.jal.co.jp/en/inter/servi..._flat_neo.html

For your peace of mind, this is a trip report on NRT-SAN after the Sky Suite upgrade (in Japanese) https://airflightlog.com/jal-sandiego-business/
Surprisingly, this is the only one I could find.

Thanks for this- Good to hear the 11 hour flight is in sky suites- interesting that the BKK to NRT which is 6 hours is still NEO- Anyway, I will stick with my booking- Thank you for your response, and link.

BKK is not a high yield route, so it is not first in line for the best hardware. Probably more like last in line. However for a day flight the NEO seats are pretty good and comfortable.
