Japan Airlines is to launch a brand new
international executive class seat - the JAL Sky Recliner - when
it receives delivery of four Boeing 767-300ER aircraft from the
manufacturer starting this month.
The new 767s are also equipped
with the most advanced version of JAL's in-flight entertainment
system - MAGIC V, which now offers a touch-screen function and
enhanced compatibility with personal electronic devices.
Modeled after the JAL First Class seat on
domestic routes, the JAL Sky Recliner is shaped like a plush-sofa
with removable armrests and made with fine upholstery that further
enhances the sense of being pampered.
The seats have a pitch of
129.5cm (51 inch), reclines to 132 degrees and are arranged in a
spacious 2-2-2 configuration, ensuring ample leg room and comfort
throughout the flight.
Features of the new design include an
optional large partition that separates both seats and thus
provide passengers with heightened privacy, as well as expanded
seat pockets for better storage of personal belongings.
Incorporating the concept of Universal Design, the buttons of the
seat control are large and ergonomic.
