Japan Airlines Amps Up First Class Suite With 43-Inch TVs, Double Beds
By Nicole Rodrigues, 04 Oct 2023
Japan Airlines (JAL) has unveiled the cabin interiors of its forthcoming Airbus A350-1000, poised to become the flagship for international travel. The aircraft boasts six first-class suites featuring individual doors for heightened privacy.
These suites offer a trio of seating modes: sofa mode for upright lounging, a double bed mode with both seats fully reclined, and a single bed mode.
On top of that, in-flight entertainment is presented on expansive 43-inch TVs with built-in speakers in the headrest, eliminating the need for headphones.
Beyond entertainment, these suites provide thoughtful amenities, including wardrobe space, storage solutions, a personal minibar, and a digital monitor for seamless communication with flight attendants. JAL is essentially aiming to mix all the luxuries of a “high-end hotel room”, “a live concert”, “a movie theater”, and a serene “home” together in one seat.
The cabin itself was inspired by the tranquil tones of Japanese aesthetics and interior design, which seeks to bring a bit of the culture and a zen feeling while soaring thousands of feet in the air. Both first-class and business-class passengers will also receive amenity kits, ensuring a comfortable journey.
The Airbus A350-1000 is slated to accommodate 239 passengers across first, business, premium economy, and economy classes. While the initial November launch on the Tokyo to New York route was postponed due to supply-chain disruptions, JAL remains committed to introducing 13 of these aircrafts into service before year-end.
