Hi – we are a family of 4 and will be using all out points for a round the world trip.

Does anyone have any experience with Qantas vs Japan Airlines (JAL) vs British Airways (BA) in terms of seat size, comfort etc?

We are flying via Tokyo so have thrown Japan Airlines into the mix.

Or is one cheaper than the other re taxes. I know British Airways can be expensive in taxes to leave the UK

Who would you prefer to fly with long haul?

Thankyou

In terms of the seat comfort, JAL install fewer seats especially on-board their 787 dreamliners which serve Australia than is the industry standard. JAL go 8 seats across in economy when the standard is 9, so each seat will definitely be a fair bit roomier.

Which route you are considering is also a factor.

Check out seatguru.com for looking up seat pitches, types, etc.

Routehappy.com is a quick tool you can use too.

  • Thanks W-hiew – I was searching “Best Airline of the Year” for different categories last night and it seems JAL is in the top 20 for most things and Qantas/BA were struggling to even be on the list. Seems like JAL is regarded pretty highly.
    We’re doing the 5 stop One World, so its a lot of flights – feel the pressure to get it right!

  • Sounds exciting. Personally, I would rank JAL>QF>BA. Others may disagree. I would check out routehappy.com . Unfortunately, depending on your routes, you don’t often get a lot of choices between oneworld airlines.

    Preselecting your seats also go a long way once you have your flights booked.
