JAL 787-800 Economy in 5 Pictures

As I continue to edit the hundreds of pictures from my trip to Asia, I will continue to provide the 5 pictures posts to hold you all over until the full reviews are published.  The 5 pictures posts provided are only of airplanes because it is what a majority of are interested in.  The next airplane I experienced was a Japan Airlines’ 787-800. The segment was from Tokyo-Narita to Bangkok.

I had some time to waste at Narita so I grabbed some sushi (which is a must do during a layover at Narita) and a quick shower at the NAA Dayroom. It was not too long before I made the journey to my departing gate where the 787-800 was waiting.

An upgrade to Premium Economy was not available for purchase due to the regional flight being completely booked, which ended up being a major bummer.  I was lucky to get an aisle near the back of the economy cabin though.  The cabin was definitely more outdated than the previous 787.

I was not offered an amenity kit on this flight.  There was a pillow, blanket, and headphones waiting at the seat.  The blanket and pillow are in the picture above, while the headphones are below. There was no way I was using those headphones, they were waiting at the seat and not wrapped in plastic.

A short time after takeoff, the dinner service started.  I had salmon for the third meal on Japan Airlines that day.  It was served on one tray, much like the previous flight.

In addition to the cabin being completely booked, the legroom left a lot to be desired.  I could not stretch out during the flight. When the person in front of me reclined their seat, the inflight entertainment screen was almost in my chest.

The first leg of the trip was awesome, but this segment was a vastly different experience.  Thanks for following along on my journeys, please check back for the full trip report.
