These include 38 fully-flat beds in business class, a new premium economy section with 35 seats, and 88 wider seats in economy class in a 2-4-2 configuration.
This means that in total, JAL’s B787-8 will feature just 161 seats across the three classes, making it among the most spacious of any twin-aisle aircraft in the skies.
Also from 29 March, JAL will start operating the B787-8 with Sky Suites on its Narita-Paris route, with Narita-Helsinki following on 1 June.
And then on 1 July 2015, JAL’s larger B787-9 Dreamliner with Sky Suites will make its international debut on the Narita-Jakarta route. This aircraft will feature 195 seats, including 44 in business class, 35 in premium economy and 116 in economy.
