The First Class cabin will be equipped with six luxurious suites. Each suite has a wide independent seat for the passenger, with a side seat for use when the primary seat is in bed position. The primary seat converts to an 80” bed with high shells and doors for utmost privacy. The suite can accommodate up to three people in flight with both the primary and side seat paired with the adjacent ottoman. Multiple stowage spaces provide space for belongings, such as a wardrobe, large under ottoman space, and an insulated drinks compartment. Passengers can enjoy an immersive cinematic experience with the 43” in-flight entertainment screen paired with Euphony, the headset free audio experience, and an individual wireless suite control unit.
The Business Class cabin features 54 suites in a staggered configuration. The Business Class seat offers an improved in-flight experience thanks to the overall space available and the technical package of Euphony and the Active Backrest. The high shell and transparent door, which are signature style features of Japan Airlines, provide passengers with privacy .This design provides comfort for all passengers due to the wide seat and optimised seat kinematics. The meal table deploys from the console in a single piece, giving passengers more space. The console paired with the meal table provides additional space for work or leisure activities. The under ottoman space allows passengers to store carry-on bags and belongings close to them.
In Premium Economy, the 24 seats have been designed to preserve each passenger’s individual living space and ensure privacy. They are equipped with a fixed backshell and a large divider between the seats, ensuring that each passenger’s own personal space is preserved at all times during the flight. Additionally, the new seats are electrically actuated, providing passengers with complete control over their seating position.
