    Well what do I think about jal versus Ana and skymark??
    Everyone had been very helpful but in japan staff hardly understand any english so i have no idea how packster communicates but they do smile and look cute (only woman have serviced me thus far on check in)....

    Any difference between Ana and jal? Probably not that is noticable. Both great airlines. I'll go out of my way to fly jal or Ana PE that's for sure.

    For most of us in Japan, we can earn more miles from spending with Ana but jal discount their reward flights so in the end it's same amount of spending on both airlines roughly to get a reward ticket. Again not sure what to do now I'm going to be elite with both.

    The domestic service is so lame with only some basic drinks and skymark I think axes this but you save up to 50% off flying skymark versus Ana or jal representing big savings. How much is a drink, lounge access, priority boarding and check in worth for a 1-2 hour flight? You're taking saving of 10-30 k yen so no small amount. Even I am starting to see what my gf is saying. Internationally, jal and Ana all the way. If I was a japanese size guy, I'd flight skymark in a heart beat but then again in a tall white guy. Why do you flight Ana or jal over skymark etc? How do you justify the extra costs?

    Stick with skymark and their 380 so you can have a happy marriage

    FYI, ANA only serve tea and water for free on domestic ao that's worse than JAL for sure, at least in donestic Y drink service.
