TOKYO, Japan – Japan Airlines (JAL) will deploy the first JAL SKY SUITE 777 between Tokyo (Narita) and London Heathrow from January 9, 2013. Eligible customers can from today, select their preferred seats on flights operated with the JAL SKY SUITE 777 based on the configuration of the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft refurnished with the airline’s latest seats.
Unveiled on September 13, 2012, the seats in all four cabin classes of the JAL SKY SUITE 777 have been significantly enhanced in terms of spaciousness, comfort and functionality. The JAL SUITE in First Class, JAL SKY SUITE in Business Class, JAL SKY PREMIUM in Premium Economy and JAL SKY WIDER in Economy Class are a clear cut above their preceding models with attractive features such as larger personal TV screens, wider seat pitches and much more, providing customers a distinctive leap forward in their overall onboard experience.
The first of thirteen JAL SKY SUITE 777s will be operated as JL401/JL402 between Tokyo (Narita) and London Heathrow on alternate days from January 9, 2013 until the complete retrofit of the second 777-300ER scheduled within February; after which the brand-new seats will become available daily as both aircraft ply the route between these two metropolitan cities.
As the fleet of 777-300ER configured for JAL’s international network goes through refurbishment, the JAL SKY SUITE 777 will be progressively introduced on long-haul routes such as between Tokyo (Narita) and New York (John F. Kennedy) and the airline’s other European services.
