Review: ANA 787-8 (78R) Premium Class from Osaka Itami to Naha

For better or worse, I never had a chance to fly on ANA’s Boeing 787-8s equipped with regional business class on an international flight. With the aircraft being used domestically now, though, I finally could try it on a domestic flight from Osaka to Naha in Premium Class. The flight was a part of my recent ANA mileage run.

Review: Jetstar Japan A321LR from Fukuoka to Tokyo Narita

After a decade of operating an all-Airbus A320 fleet, Jetstar Japan put its first Airbus A321LR into operation on July 1, 2022. While I originally booked a seat on the aircraft’s inaugural flight from Tokyo to Fukuoka, I eventually had to skip the flight due to other commitments. I rebooked the flight a couple of times before finally using the ticket on a flight from Fukuoka to Tokyo which I took after joining ANA Demon Slayer Jet #3’s inaugural flight. With the new flight being cheaper than the flight I originally booked and an actual refund not being possible, I even had a chance to try one ..read more

On my way back from Europe to Japan back in September 2022, I flew with Swiss from Prague to Tokyo. The flight from Prague to Zurich was operated by a Helvetic Airways E190-E2 and the long-haul flight was operated by a 777-300ER. While I reviewed Swiss 777-300ER business class in the past, this is my first time writing about an economy class flight on the aircraft.

Helvetic Airways is an airline that operates some of Swiss’s intra-European flights using a fleet of Embraer aircraft. Recently, I had a chance to fly with the airline on a flight from Prague to Zurich when making my way back to Japan from Europe. Continue reading this review to see what the flight was like.

Review: JAL 777-300ER First Class from Tokyo Haneda to New York JFK

With limited award availability between Japan and Europe, I decided to start my most recent trip with a flight to New York. Considering that I had some Alaska Airlines miles to burn, wanted to try JAL’s international first class for a long time, and there was award availability on the day I wanted to travel, it felt like a no-brainer. While there were some elements of the flight that could have been better, overall, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Review: Ibex Airlines CRJ-700 from Sendai to Sapporo
KN Aviation - Airline reviews

While ANA and JAL are by far the largest airlines in Japan, there are also several smaller airlines operating domestic flights around the country. One of those is Ibex Airlines – a regional airline that primarily operates flights in and out of Sendai Airport in the Tohoku region and that partners with ANA. The airline has long been on my wishlist (so are all the other airlines in Japan that I still haven’t flown on) and so I was happy when a chance to catch a flight on it came up during my trip to catch the last flight of ANA’s BB-8 Jet. I took one of ANA’s temporary flights from Tokyo to Send ..read more

Review: ANA 737-800 Premium Class from Tokyo to Sendai

While thinking of which flight to take to Sapporo in advance of taking the BB-8 ANA Jet’s last flight, Japan was hit by a large earthquake that put Japan’s Tohoku Shinkansen (the bullet train connecting Tokyo with the north of the country) out of service. To fill the gap, both ANA and JAL (and later Spring Airlines) introduced temporary flights between Tokyo and Sendai, the largest city in the Tohoku region. Not having flown on the route before – and not having flown on Ibex which offers connections from Sendai to Sapporo either – I decided to book one of ANA’s Tokyo – Sendai flights.

Review: Finnair A319 Business Class from Vienna to Helsinki

On our way back from Europe to Japan back in February, my wife and I traveled in Finnair’s business class from Vienna to Tokyo Narita via Helsinki. I won’t be reviewing the long-haul flight from Helsinki to Tokyo on an A350 since I reviewed the same flight back in January on the exact same route. I decided to review the shorter flight from Vienna to Helsinki, though, as it was operated by an A319 whereas the one I took in January was operated by an Embraer E190.

Review: Qatar Airways 787-9 Business Class from Doha to Vienna

Qatar Airways has, for better or worse, one of the most diverse fleets when it comes to the types of business class seats used. Ranging from standard recliners on some of its narrowbody aircraft, through older full-flat seats and reverse herringbone seats on some of its widebody aircraft, all the way to one of the best business class seats – the QSuites, the airline has it all. The most recent addition to that collection of seat types is are the suites featured on Qatar Airways’ Boeing 787-9s. Being a combination of reverse herringbone and standard herringbone, the product is different from wh ..read more

Review: Qatar Airways 777-300ER Economy Class from Tokyo to Doha

When I booked this flight, I was hoping to receive a decent upgrade offer like I did on the same flight a couple of months earlier. Since that didn’t happen – the “offer” was about the same or even more expensive than buying a business class ticket outright – I instead flew the sector in economy. While it would have been nice to start my wife and I’s trip to Europe in the excellent QSuites, I was also glad I got to review the airline’s 777-300ER economy class for the first time.
