JAL Announces Installation of Fully-Flat Seats in Business Class on More International Flights

-“Welcome! JAL New Sky” project expands to include new seats in both business and economy classes on the airline’s international Boeing 767-300ER fleet -

TOKYO May 30, 2013: Japan Airlines (JAL) announced today that it will install all new seats in the airline’s two-class international Boeing 767-300ER fleet as part of its continued commitment to provide customers with a high-quality, full-service experience. The latest improvements are in addition to the previously announced revamp of the airline’s four-class international Boeing 777-300ERs.

JAL Business Class in the updated Boeing 767-300ERs will be fitted with 24 new JAL SKY SUITE II seats, each designed to recline 180 degrees into a fully flat bed. In addition, each seat in the 1-2-1 configuration provides unobstructed aisle access for an undisturbed flight allowing maximum personal enjoyment and a soothing rest.

In revamped aircraft’s JAL Economy Class, the airline will install its newest economy class seat, JAL SKY WIDER.  A total of 175 seats will be available in a 2-3-2 configuration and seat highlights include increased pitch and a slim-style seatback design resulting in approximately 10 cm (MAX.) more legroom than the present seat pitch.

JAL plans to first introduce the completely revamped Boeing 767-300ERs between Tokyo (Narita) and Vancouver from December 2013. The revamped aircraft will also be introduced onto select long-haul Southeast Asia routes and Honolulu routes by fiscal year 2014.

With these latest improvements, all of JAL’s routes operating to and from North America and Europe as well as the airline’s long-haul Southeast Asia routes will offer flat-reclining seats*1 in JAL Business Class providing passengers with an even more comfortable in-flight experience.

JAL is continually striving to bring passengers a unique and completely refreshing   onboard experience with the expansion of JAL NEW SKY PROJECT.
