    Taking J to BKK in June. Do you think it is worth the extra 60min commute from Tokyo to NRT to take the B777 service or would you take the B767 red eye sevice from HND?

    That 777 flight usually uses JAL Shell Flat seats, which is the previous generation longhaul product vs the regional seats you get on 767

    The J experience may or may not make it bearable...

    I must admit I am not a big fan of that type of seat on the 767. What were the old J seats on the 747, skylux? I didnt mind those, but the 767 just doesnt have the pitch or width.

    If i enjoy too much of the inflight service my eyes will be redder than the rest. ;)
    hmmm its not a work trip so I prob shouldnt punish myself on that flight for the convenience of departing HND.

    In addition to looking at the time to get to NRT, compare the cost. Either the limobus or the NEX train from Tokyo station (etc.) are pretty expensive.
