Gift at the end ?

Are they learned that we all love the gift for flying OZ F long haul ? Do you have a photo of that mug ? Please do let us see that to compare with the OZ F Versace Rosenthal Mug.

Any photo of the amenity kit and the content as well ? Thanks.

It looked as though we were the only two who got the "gift" - she apologised for not having one of the items on the a la carte menu when she gave them to us - so I think it was a gesture.
Despite what it shows on the website below, they did not use these mugs at all during the flight, and ours came wrapped in a box.

The picture of the mug is here:

The amenity kit is identical to the one on the web site as well - sorry, but I didn't take a picture of it. The men's and women's were both brown in colour.

a minor thing: you have the [img] [/img] tags around your embedded pics

The new F looks very nice, especially compared to JAL's older F seat (see lucky's tr). Food & service looks impressive. Great pictures

Thanks for the comments!
I fixed the IMG problem.

I've flown in their skysleeper solo on several occasions and in some aspects still prefer the 747, even with the older seat. But this latest product has much more space and privacy.

It was very fabulously trip reports details. Where you upgrading into F class suite for NRT-JFK nonstop on operate 777-300ER. It was absolutely very gorgeous brand newest F class. So are you being enjoyable where you sleep in the F class? I think the legroom is much bigger more convenient the space. The meal is very good. Maybe you would likely to flying on JL again for next available future trip out of JFK.

Thanks for your sharing the trip reports.

The new JAL F looks awesome! Sounds like you had a great flight. Do you pics of the second meal service?

Wow, good stuff! I'm not sure why, but, I haven't seen many reports on JAL save for yours, and Lucky's. Your pictures look fantastic.

How the hell did you manage to get in and out of your seat with a full meal on the tray? Does it slide that like SQs? (I'm just trying to imagine exiting my seat during a meal on some airlines, and the disaster that it would be).

Great pictures. They made me want to fly JAL F - and that a west coast flight to NRT would not be long enough.

It was not an upgrade, it was paid F for both of us.
It was the new 777-300ER from NRT to New York.
The room is much larger and the seat much wider than previous.

I was the only westerner in F.
There were 6 out of 8 seats taken.
