A second frequency using the Boeing B787-9 Dreamliner is being added by Japan Airlines on its nonstop Heathrow – Tokyo Haneda route from 29 October. The airline is also increasing frequency between Tokyo Narita and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi from the same date until 24 March next year.
The increases put London in line to join JAL’s routes that feature the airline’s Sky Suite Business Class now being fitted to the Dreamliners and B777 and B767 fleets and scheduled to be introduced on Tokyo Narita – Kuala Lumpur from the end of this month.
Features include an uprated fully-flat seat first introduced on JAL’s B777-200ER aircraft last summer, while seating in the Business Class cabin itself will be increased to 52 seats compared to the previous 44.
The Sky Suite III seats are in 1x2x1 compared with 2x2x2 to give all passengers direct aisle access and have a maximum bed length of about 78in and a width of 21in expandable to 29in with the armrest stowed.
There is also a 17in monitor, a retractable privacy partition, a universal power outlet and a USB port.
