JAL’s First Airbus A350-1000 Arrives at Haneda Airport

JAL's first Airbus A350-1000 arriving

Japan Airlines (JAL) has welcomed its first Airbus A350-1000 aircraft (registration number: JA01WJ), earmarked for international routes, at Haneda Airport at approximately 10:26 AM on December 15th.

After receiving the aircraft in Toulouse, France, it departed at 1:13 PM local time on December 14th and took off 46 minutes later. The aircraft flew over Italy, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, China, and South Korea before arriving in Japan.

The cabin is configured with 239 seats, featuring 6 First Class seats, 54 Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy seats, and 155 Economy Class seats. Compared to the 777-300ER aircraft, the Airbus A350-1000 offers 5 more seats in Business Class and 8 more in Economy. However, it has 2 fewer First Class seats and 16 fewer Premium Economy seats. The First and Business Class sections emphasise privacy with the introduction of enclosed suites with doors, a first for JAL.

Scheduled to start operations on January 24, 2024, the Airbus A350-1000 will replace the current Boeing 777-300ER, introduced in July 2004, and will become the new flagship for international flights, nearly 20 years after its predecessor.
