■Overview

Business Class seat “JAL SKY SUITE ” is a new fully-flat seat which ensures privacy and pursues comfort. Ample space ensures comfort, soothing rest and sleep in a lie-flat bed position by dimensionally crossing the foot position of the central seats. Premium Economy Class is fitted with the reputable JAL SKY PREMIUM seat which has already been introduced on other JAL SKY SUITE configured aircraft, and JAL SKY WIDER seat for Economy Class offers up to 10cm more legroom in a 3-4-2 seating configuration. These improvements provide easier choice of seat and aisle access to meet diverse customer needs in all classes.

 

■Points of Evaluation (summary from judges’ comments)

Given the feature of medium-haul international routes which serves both business and leisure customers, the cabin seats in each class are arranged innovatively. Especially, usage of space in Business Class is exceptionally outstanding, as the maximum personal space is secured through incorporating an overlapping design in the central seats. Consideration is also given to neighboring passengers, such as installing a movable partition between seats to ensure privacy. The seat is designed to offer enhanced comfort during the flight through innovative utilization of room in the limited cabin space.
