JAL’s business class ‘SkySuites’

Japan Airlines (JAL) is launching its ‘SkySuite’ product on its flights between Tokyo and Vancouver.

The Boeing 767-300ER aircraft that operates the trans-Pacific route will be fitted with the new business class seats, with the first flight taking off on 9 December 2013.

According to JAL, the SkySuite is designer to evoke a “one-class higher” feeling among passengers, with the fully-flat seats in business class all offering featuring aisle access, more storage space, 15.4-inch touch-screen TV screens, USB ports and power outlets.

The aircraft will also come fitted with JAL’s ‘SkyWider’ seats in economy class, which offer increased pitch and a slim-style design resulting in approximately 10cm more legroom than the previous economy cabin.

The Vancouver flights will mark the product’s debut on the B767 aircraft, but the roll-out will continue next year with the product’s introduction onto the Tokyo-Kuala Lumpur route from January 2014. The airline also plans to expand this new service on routes to Southeast Asia and Honolulu in future.

JAL’s refitted B767-300 comes equipped with 24 seats in business class and 175 in economy.
