JAL domestic First Class

Toyko Haneda to Okinawa may have a sector length not much longer than 2hrs 30mins but JAL has decided to introduce a domestic First Class.  Boeing 777s are used on many of the services.

JAL already offers First Class service on routes between Haneda and Sapporo, Fukuoka and Osaka.  Of the 17 daily flights between Haneda and Fukuoka, JAL will increase those with First Class from seven to 13 from 1 July.  JAL also plans to add more flights with First Class on the Haneda – Sapporo route from the second half of the year.

Domestic JAL First Class customers can check-in at exclusive counters for First Class passengers, enjoy priority boarding and baggage handling, as well as have access to the Diamond Premier Lounge.  Onboard, they are served with a wide range of quality food, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks as they enjoy the comforts of a large sofa-like seat upholstered in fine leather.  Arranged in seven pairs in the front of the aircraft, JAL First Class seats recline to a maximum angle of 132°, which offers a generous amount of legroom for each customer with a 51inch space before the seat in front. www.jal.com
