Japan Airlines is to add its domestic JAL First Class service on a portion of daily flights between Tokyo, Haneda and Okinawa, Naha from 1 August 2012.

Reservations and sales begin tomorrow, 1 June 2012.

JAL already offers First Class service on routes between Haneda and Sapporo, Fukuoka and Osaka. Of the 17 daily flights between Haneda and Fukuoka, JAL will increase the number of flights fitted with First Class from 7 to 13, starting 1 July this year. JAL also plans to add more flights with first class on the Haneda - Sapporo route from the second half of the year.

Domestic JAL First Class customers can check-in at counters open exclusively for first class passengers, enjoy priority boarding and baggage handling, as well as have access to the Diamond Premier Lounge refurbished in October 2010.

Onboard, they will be served with a wide range of quality food, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks as they enjoy the comforts of a 53cm wide sofa-like seat upholstered in fine leather.

Arranged in seven pairs in the front of the aircraft, JAL First Class seats recline to a maximum angle of 132 and offer a generous amount of legroom for each customer, with a 130cm space before the seat in front.

Cloak services and extra amenities such as slippers and blankets are also available at their request.

Passengers who have purchased a domestic fare ticket can upgrade from economy class to first class by paying 8,000 yen for each sector of their journey, subject to seat availability. Ticket rules and conditions apply.
