JAL to Upgrade Business Class Seats on Boeing 777-200ER Aircraft

From July 2016, Japan Airlines will introduce a renewed cabin interior, called JAL Sky Suite 777 (SS2), to the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft which operate the Tokyo (Haneda) - Bangkok route.

JAL is also planning to use the revamped aircraft on the Tokyo (Haneda) - Singapore route, and will expand it onto JAL's Honolulu route from this winter.

"Our aim is to deliver enhanced services and products to more customers. We have developed this new Business Class seat with highly in-flight habitability and provision of appropriate capacity as well," said Yoshiharu Ueki, President of Japan Airlines. "JAL will be continuing to embrace new challenges, and striving to become the most preferred airline in the world."

In addition to further expansion of fully flat seat service on JAL's medium-haul international routes, the JAL Sky Premium seat will be introduced in Premium Economy Class.

The seat in the Economy Class will also be replaced with JAL Sky Wider, which offers an increased seat pitch of max. 10cm more than the current seat.

Together with the expansion of "New Spacious Economy" service, the seating configuration will become 3-4-2.
