Boeing 787 The widest

Japan Airlines will roll out new aircraft and cabin products across a series of international routes this year introducing the most spacious of all the 787s. 

From June, the airline will start deploying its new fleet of Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners with its Sky Suite cabins, offering 44 fully-flat beds in Business Class (2+2+2), a new Premium Economy section with 35 seats (2+3+2).  Sky Premium seats are 19ins wide with a 42ins pitch and each is fitted with a 12.1ins TV screen.  Economy, with 116 seats, is just a fraction narrower (18.9ins) but with a 33ins pitch and 2+4+2.

This means that in total, the larger B787-9s will feature just 195 seats across the three classes, making probably the most spacious of any twin-aisle aircraft in the skies.

The much acclaimed Qatar Airways 787-8s carry in total 254 passengers with a 3+3+3 configuration, but does not have a First Class. 

The new Dash Nine will make its international debut on the Tokyo Narita – Jakarta route from 1 July 2015, marking one of a series of Dreamliner deployments planned by JAL this year. 

Singapore Airlines new low-cost carrier Scoot is expected to fit its 787-9s with 375 seats in a two-class layout.  Most airlines with 787 aircraft are nine across at the back including Air Canada, British Airways and United.  www.jal.com
