Best business class to JFK
I’m Jean Yu and I’m from KL, Malaysia. I am posting my question on which airline provides the best business class experience to JFK.
Currently I am awaiting response from my travel agency on itinerary and fare prices to Eastern USA & Canada which I will be flying in a few months. So I had researched some good airlines just in case; namely ANA, CX and JAL. I found these airlines that provide great inflight experience with nice meal services and seat comfort. On the other side, I prefer not to choose nonstop flight with SIA via Singapore as it may not be a good idea to fly comfortably on this ultra long haul flight which may constrains my mind being stuck like a prison.
I am posting this to ask anyone which airlines are the best to fly to JFK with good comfort and services because I will be flying with my family from KL and they are old. I don’t mind the price and I just want to find out how comfortable that airlines provide. Hope to hear from you all.
How large is your family? You could look at flying Qatar through Doha. Kuala Lumpur to Doha to New York is only 200 miles more than flying through Tokyo. If your family is 4 persons, you could reserve the center 4 quad seats and have a really nice, comfortable flight with a lot of room to relax
I’d argue QR is the best, followed by JL (Apex Suites), then CX, then NH.

Thanks [USER=1436]@rickyw[/USER] for your recommendation. Just 3 persons in my family. Recently I heard from someone in other blogs that you have to contact American Airlines representatives to help book and reserve that 4 quad seats. Is it correct?
Just another question. In terms of convenience and timing, how different in directions below are they? Is it faster in catching connecting flight?

Very true that QR has the best inflight services, including QSuites.
Hi Jean, I haven’t done all those routes before but all three airports have sterile transit, meaning you won’t have to clear Immigration (like you would in the US). There will be an additional security checkpoint, but that’s normal everywhere.
In terms of distance flown, Hong Kong is shortest, then Tokyo, then Doha. But again, the difference in total is only about 600 miles total, so maybe an extra 1.5 hour of flying time.
I’d assume you would call Qatar to book the seats together, not American.
The HKG transfer would mean access to CX’s fantastic lounges so even a longer layover isnt a terrible idea.
