Japan Airlines To Refit Selected B767s With New Seats

Japan Airlines has revealed that it will refurbish the interiors of selected Boeing 767-300ER aircraft and install new Business and Economy Class seats onboard. The Tokyo-based carrier is turning its attention to the 199-seat jets after implementing a similar product upgrade for its Boeing 777-300ER fleet and introducing the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.


24 new JAL Sky Suite II seats will be fitted in a 1-2-1 configuration, providing direct aisle access for each passenger. Each seat reclines to a fully-flat position, offering a bed length of approximately 200 centimeters, while a flexible side table and storage space provide passengers with their personal space onboard. Entertainment is delivered via a 15.4-inch touchscreen monitor, with universal power outlet and USB connectivity for personal devices.


In Economy Class, the new JAL Sky Wider seats will be fitted in a 2-3-2 layout. The slimline design increases seat pitch to 33 inches and the seat width will be approximately 17.7 inches, with a 10.6-inch seatback mounted personal screen together with in-seat power outlet and USB connection port.


Japan Airlines plans to introduce the upgraded jets on its Tokyo (Narita) – Vancouver route from December 2013, before rolling out the aircraft on select long-haul flights between Japan, Honolulu and Southeast Asia. The move will ensure greater product consistency for the airline, where its premium passengers enjoy full-flat beds on all routes operating to and from Europe, North America and Southeast Asia.
