    1. My favourite airlines to Japan are Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways, in terms of food and service. Their flights require a transit in Tokyo. Alternatively, Cathay Pacific is good too, but requires a transit in Hong Kong.

      If you prefer to fly direct, currently there is only one choice, Malaysia Airlines.
