Just FYI for ZIPAir

ZIPAIR Tokyo is Japan Airlines' low cost international brand. A few differences between ZIPAIR Tokyo and Japan Air:
ZIPAIR Tokyo configure their Boeing 787 in 3 x 3 x 3 seating configuration vs Japan Air's 2 x 4 x 2 seating configuration
ZIPAIR Tokyo's legroom is 31″ vs Japan Air's 33″ – 34″
ZIPAIR does not include anything with the fare besides the seat – everything is extra from carry-on, seat assignment and checked luggage. This will range from anywhere between $45 and $130 each way depending the options you pick.

But price is still better than other airlines even if you add on bags/seat assignment etc. But legroom could be an issue for some.
This isn't an airport. No need to announce your plans.

I've looked at reviews online and many people had bad experience with them. Anyone take this airline before?

I saw a YouTube review of a lady with like a 8 year old's voice. It seems like JAL's version of spirit (probably higher grade) in that you pay for the extras. That reviewer does seem to hold it in high regards nonetheless. Honestly I'm a no fuss flyer as long as the leg room is enough which you can't get on any airlines these days. (Thus having to pay extra for extra room).

I think I saw that same review; she mentioned a few times that cancellations were not allowed. On ZipAir's website, they state you can cancel within 24 hours of making your reservation, but no changes/cancellations can be made for flights to/from the following:

"Tokyo = Taipei, Bangkok, Singapore, Honolulu, San Jose, Los Angeles" (and vice versa)

No Refund

However, on an individual basis, if the customer ends up not traveling and the company (ZIPAIR) does not pay the airport fees and/or other government taxes, the applicable amount will be refunded to the customer."

It's a great fare, but confusing; I'll wait until I have definite travel dates and watch for reviews.

EVERY airline has a multitude of negative reviews. A bad experience is what prompts people to complain. Rarely does a positive experience prompt a positive review.

I look at one statistic: How many people got to their destination safely on an airline. All other metrics are irrelevant to me as a 'bad day' for me is 1000x better than most humans best day.

JAL has 33" and ANA has 34", which is class leading.

I booked this flight from LAX for a trip in late February. I'm willing to trust this airline since it's owned by JAL. Anything low fare minimalist airline will suck, but asian airlines are just a different class. Singapore Airlines rivals ANA and JAL. Any of those three having an economy class airline works for me. Ifyou are flying in the earlier months (Nov/Dec), then you're likely going to see not a whole lot of people on the planes. Japan is opening up on the 11th and only require proof of vaccination (no more need of a VISA and group tourist travel).
Just make sure to get yourself some food and drinks at the airport before boarding.

Hokkaido is better during winter if you love extreme cold like me. I've been to Honshu mostly during spring and fall, they are perfect seasons for Honshu. Summer is muggy.
