Japan Airlines inflight wifi service, JAL Sky Wifi, is so much of a better value than All Nippon Airways' ANA Wifi Service, that there is simply no comparison. For $21.95US ($19.75 if you pay with a JAL credit card), you can have unlimited internet for 24 hours.
ANA charges slightly more, $24US, for which you get 20MB.
Yes, 20 whole Megabytes. That's all. Once you use that up, you can buy more. What a joke. The only way ANA would be a better value is if you just needed to urgently check an email. You could buy the 5MB plan and hope there are not automatically downloaded attachments. The routes on which ANA Wifi Service is available is also not set. There are a total of only 3 planes that are equipped.
