AA /JAL to Asia questions

Jump to last reply

I was finally able to get tickets in Business class using AA miles to Vietnam.
I ended up with this:
LAX-Tokyo on AA169 (code share with JAL)
Tokyo-Hanoi on JAL751

BKK-Tokyo on JAL708 (operated by JL for JO)-Can anyone tell me what this means?
Tokyo-SFO on JAL2
SFO-LAX on AA1931

I did not realize when I booked the ticket that the first leg was operated by AA.
Should I be concerned? I know they have a new business class and it looks good, but I don't know if it will be in place on all flights by the time I fly (July 09I. I also read some bad reviews on of AA's new business seats on
The reviews of JAL's business class are not much better but there is a JAL flight to Tokyo about an hour later than my AA one, should I try to get us on that flight?

I would prefer to fly back from BKK on Cathay Pacific and will continue to check for availability on that. Otherwise can anyone shed some light on the JAL flight from BKK to Tokyo?
