Love every thing about this flight, Japan airline was wonderful but the flight from LA to Japan Haneda by American Airline was horrible. The flight crew was like a zombies. I was in the premium economy for 10,30 hours flight , we got 1 cup of warm coffee no one ever come back to ask for the refill and 1 can of coke. In the future I will book Japan airlines for both leg.
