JL745 - NRT to MNL business class - Neo Seats?

I'm booked on the NRT to MNL flight in business class in November of this year. I noticed that that JAL is flying the 788 with the Neo Seats which I'm not too happy about.

What are the chances that they would fly a 767 or 787 with a better business class seat? Does JAL have a equipment change schedule they publish for 2020?

If you aren't happy with NEO, pick a different airline and try their regional product then. You are flying a regional flight with flight time of 5 hours and it's not a red-eye flight. Just be glad it's not a recliner.

If you want to know the seat type, wait for winter schedule to be announced in 6-7 months. No one knows what JAL will use on that route.

The NEO seats are pretty comfortable for a day time flight. Lots of space. Pick a bulkhead and you almost have room to dance in front of the seat.

Just because better products exist it does not mean that the Neo product is bad. It is not an overnight flight, and as CPH-Flyer says, the seats are pretty comfortable and spacious. They send these planes to Bangkok too, and here it is even on over-night flights - and to be honest, I have little problem with those.

Lots can happen between now and November.
