Interesting read from one of the few bloggers who had actually flown almost every single F product in the world. Of course a lot of this changes when you're not eating any of the food or drinking champagne.

I happen to agree with you and would add that even the hard product isn't out of the world and is given too much hype.

All on the list :)

I actually was conflicted on JL or SQ on which would top my current list:

SQ - very private suite, edible meals, better entertainment. I found the bed to be hard for sleeping.
JL - very comfortable mattress, better ground service (at NRT transit), open suite though felt private. Meal was stogel (cough cough..) and did not find anything interesting on the IFE.

Both had great service.

Though GA service in J, may have been better than both of those. It was that great.

Agree with SQ.
NH is amazing and a real bargain. Comfortable mattress, private, amazing scotch/sake, incredible service, Hermolis meals, the real deal.

Though GA service in J, may have been better than both of those. It was that great.

GA is known for their incredible service in premium cabins. Their F product looks amazing as well.

Had a great time in Japan (only been to Kyoto) and would look forward to return on NH and see Tokyo etc. Best way to try NH would be through VS - especially when there is a transfer bonus - though it would need to be booked as RT. Takes away the fun of trying another carrier.

Wow. Deets?

Service was genuine and warm Indonesian hospitality. All 4 FA's taking care of J were excellent. They would never talk to you while standing, instead always kneeling down so they can be at eye level. They knew exactly how often to come and when not to disturb.

If you are walking towards the lav, they welcome you in and hold the curtain/door for you.

They took pride in prepping meals and were concerned when I was not eating the shelf stable Stogel food. Made sure to constantly offer fruits/snacks and drinks.

The seats were reverse herringbone and comfortable for sitting, not so much for sleeping, as the tray table sits in a constant "over-bed" position, only a little space over. For sleeping on back it's ok, though you cannot turn or get comfortable on a side.

Entertainment was decent too. They had a really good soundtrack for boarding and landing (was ringing in my head the rest of the day) though I cannot find a link to it online.

The service is what stood out the most.

Exactly and you can see why when you are onboard. First class can be expensive / hard to redeem miles for. Intra-asia (my flight was DPS-KIX 7 hours) was 40k delta miles.

The A333 on that route does not have first class. First only available on the 77W.

The 77W does DPS-NRT daily, it also does DPS-PEK and DPS-PVG sometimes. May be a better J seat on there.

Uch, this sounds so weird. One of my favorite things about LH F was that I was treated as a king but I never felt awkward.

That's the difference between the German hospitality and the Asian hospitality, they're both nice, just different. I personally prefer the warmness and genuine care of the Asian's over the stiffness of the German's but to each their own.
