JAL to install new seats in every cabin class on its international 777-300ER fleet
News On Japan via eturbonews.com -- Aug 17
Japan Airlines has announced plans to install brand-new seats in every cabin class on its international fleet of 777-300ER aircraft.
The newly-designed seats will debut on the daily service between Tokyo and London from January 2013, and will progressively be expanded to New York and mainly on other long-haul Europe and North America routes in JAL's network.
Every new seat, significantly superior to their preceding models, will offer customers in all four cabin classes a leap forward in comfort level, functionality, and the overall onboard experience. JAL will start refitting 13 of its flagship 777-300ER aircraft with these seats; 8 in First, 49 in Business, 40 in Premium Economy and 135 in Economy Class. Subsequently, JAL will introduce the latest full-flat Business Class beds on its fleet of 767-300ER, followed by a complete renewal of seats in every other class of travel commencing from the second half of 2013.
A foremost highlight of the renewal is the fully flat beds in Business Class arranged in an innovative layout that offers every customer unobstructed access to the aisles. The improved hardware promises greater privacy, enhanced functionality and a personal TV screen almost twice the size than before, providing customers with a luxurious personal space and ambience akin to a first class experience. Similarly in the latest JAL Premium Economy and Economy Class, customers can expect seats that are a cut above the standards of previous models, and arguably comparable to being upgraded a class ahead.
