Top Shelf On JAL

Air travel in and around this region is vastly different than,
especially if one is used to steerage class.

On a recent trip to the US I flew United and got a Japan Airlines
connector. Besides the obvious differences in the breadth of the cabin
crew (not a big issue, and hey, I support unions) the quality of
services and amenities were in stark contrast.

International travel means free liquor on board - I think I mustered a
Miller Light or two on United. On the short JAL hop I got a Bombay
martini. Nice.

Too bad the United flights from HCMC connect thru HK and not Japan.
Bummer for future travels in groggy comfort.
