Our rating:
Advantages of Japan Airlines are the diversity and quantity of destinations and direct flights to destinations in the Pacific and Japan. The fleet is very well maintained. It is also possible to select a seat and check in online.
Disadvantages of Japan Airlines are the seat pitch in economy class on long distances. Not too much legroom although direct Japanese competitors offer more or less the same seat pitch.

Japan Airlines is a good but average airline. No extraordinary performance but a decent airline with good service. Japan Airlines has many flights to destinations in Japan.
