JL angle-flat are only on intra-asia flights now. All JL long-haul flights are lie-flat. Apex lie-flats are 2-3-2 on 77W and 2-2-2 on 787.

I have enjoyed the Sky Suites on a number of occassions. And on the2-2-2 and 2-3-2 configurations, all seats have aisle access. https://www.jal.co.jp/en/inter/servi.../skysuite.html
They are a wee bit tighter than, say QRs new suites, but I loved the privacy, and service was great as always.

For the avoidance of doubt about the seats... The 787.

Just FYI, there are a number of dates in July and August leaving out of SEA to Tokyo and Osaka for ~$2370. Look on google flights and play around w dates. I am not sure if this warrants a separate thread. If it does please let me know and I can start one.

Some of the lower-yield TPAC flights get inferior lie-flat products. KIX-LAX gets the SS3 (which is a watered down version of reverse-herringbone), while YVR gets the SS6 which can be quite a squeeze. They might not be so relevant to the thread here but it's worth bearing in mind that not all long-haul routes are equal.

Has anybody here done an overnight transit at TPE before? If I arrive from JAL flight at 21:15 and have a connecting CX flight to HK the following day at 6AM, without a CX boarding pass before arriving TPE, do I need to clear immigration for that? Does the TPE transit area open 24 hours a day? Please help! Thx!

I have flown both JL and KE on the referred long-haul seats - they are great for privacy but a bit tight esp for a tall person such as myself, compared to CX. Food and service are great. Cabin tends to be warm.

Hope this is helpful for those thinking about it. I don't think I'll pull this one as I have better options but it's good for ex-US fares.

Hey, no you shouldn't need to process through immigration to transit, even on a different airline. There's no 'transit' area per say, just a method by which you need to transit. Without immigration. I've stayed overnight at the priority pass lounge hotel and it's quite comfortable. You can go to the Cathay transit desk in the terminal to get your onward boarding pass. Please note however, this whole thing really only works is you're travelling WITHOUT checked luggage. If you've checked a bag, you'll need to go through immigration in order to pick it up I think.

Personally every time I've done it I just clear immigration and stay at the Novotel.
