Guys, was just wondering what your opinion is? Of the following 2 airlines what is the most comfortable; JAL or Singapore Airlines?

Note: I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall.

Thanks

Danish.

In general, Singapore Airlines is a 5 star airline, JAL is 4 star. I find different answers about legspace economy class on the net. Some say it's both 32 inches, others say Singapore 32, JAL 34 inches!
So pure for legspace go for JAL, it's probably a good airline as well.

I haven't travelled JAL, but in my opinion Singapore Airlines is the best airline I have travelled with in the world - personally I reckon there is more to a comfortable flight than the difference between 32 and 34 inches of legroom, and I like all the extras on Singapore.

I can't comment first hand I'm afraid but a friend of mine flew to Cairns on JAL and said the service and comfort were fantastic. Singapore airlines I found a bit restrictive in legroom (my legs are long from hip to knee) - I was fine on Thai airways if that's any comparison.

I've just realised how useless that advice is - sorry. I've had a beer :)

I have flown both airlines from LAX to BKK or SIN. Singapore Air gets my vote, newer planes, decent food & beautiful flight attendants. But I would fly JAL again when price is factored in. For me, price is more important than food, flight times or movies available.
