Japan Airlines Airbus A350-1000

Japan Airlines (JAL) will begin operating the Airbus A350-1000 aircraft on the Tokyo/Haneda – New York/John F. Kennedy route starting January 24, 2024.

Originally scheduled to start operations in late November, the delivery was delayed, resulting in two postponements of the inaugural flight. The first aircraft will operate on alternate days, with the second aircraft to be introduced within the fiscal year for daily operation. Once the third aircraft is received, it will be deployed on the Tokyo/Haneda – Dallas/Fort Worth route.

The cabin configuration includes 6 First Class seats, 54 Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy seats, and 155 Economy Class seats, totaling 239 seats. First Class features a ‘1-1-1’ layout, and Business Class a ‘1-2-1’ layout, with each offering enclosed seating. The world’s first headrest integrated speakers that eliminate the need for headphones have been introduced. Premium Economy Class is in a ‘2-4-2’ layout and is the world’s first to offer electric reclining seats. Economy Class will be arranged in a ‘3-3-3’ layout. All classes will be equipped with 4K monitors, allowing passengers to connect wireless earphones via Bluetooth and enjoy in-flight entertainment.

The Airbus A350-1000 is the longest fuselage variant of the Airbus A350 series. In a typical three-class configuration, it can accommodate between 350 and 410 seats. The aircraft uses advanced materials such as carbon fiber, allowing for weight reduction, and boasts fuel consumption that is 25% less than competing models.
