Thanks for the great video accompanying your report. It looks like you had thickly cut bacon in the JAL lounge. How was it? I alsways amazes me how airlines claim that lounges offer an oasis of comfort to unwind away from the crowds in a nice atmosphere, when the reality is hard surfaces that echo the clinking of cutlery and crockery, glasses and cups. Some lounges have the ambience of a family restaurant salad bar - if they offer food.
Did the F lounge also have large, soft chairs and quiet spaces?
The menu was odd to read, with a strange mix of Japanese, English and French. I've never really considered a "Marriage of shrimp & mayonnaise"... which one wore the dress(ing)?
I cannot imagine what a "cascade of potage" looks like either. A soupy waterfall perhaps?
I expect a lot of people would not know that pacific saury is a type of fish.
For me at least, an "artisanal" bread does not help to 'paint the picture' of the product. What ever happened to good old overused-in-Japan "gourmet"?
I suspect that 'rice powder' bread actually refers to rice flour, so perhaps something lost in translation there.
And only one dessert choice in F?? While I'm at it, could you order more than one Hors d'Oeuvre? Were you satisfied with the serving size?
As for the second serving, that Japanese curry looks like something you can buy very cheaply. I do not consider that to be an F quality meal. It is certainly not a breakfast type meal and you were served prior to early morning arrival. I would have expected something better from JL
Interesting you say that 'company policy' means no champagne before take off. I've had two glasses of Dom before take of on TG
in F a number of times.
How was the "Salon" champagne? For me, it couldn't compare to Dom Perignon, which I personally think is the best.
Was the seat comfortable for sleeping?
Did you use the IFE system?
Did they give you pyjamas?
How spacious did the F cabin feel for you?
Thanks again for sharing your F experience!
