Fly JAL to Japan

When you have to cross the skies on a long journey, seated in a confined space, you want your seat to be comfortable. At a time when all airlines are competing to provide fully reclined flat-bed seating in business class, JAL has opted to pay attention to economy class seating. The airline boasts economy comfort on a par with premium economy.

JAL’s SKY WIDER offers increased leg room in economy thanks to 10 centimetres more space between seats. JAL has steadily continued to expand the routes it services since introducing the SKY WIDER to its international B777-300 aircraft in January 2013 under the slogan of a “new, spacious economy”.

In June, JAL was awarded Best Economy Class Airline Seat in the 2015 World Airline Awards, by Skytrax in the UK, which reviews airlines and airports. Among the world’s airlines, JAL’s SKY WIDER seats were identified as the best. Passengers will be able to experience the “new, spacious economy” on flights between Sydney and Narita, when aircraft fitted with the SKY WIDER seats will be placed on the route departing Sydney between 26 October, 2015 and 26 March, 2016.


JAL’s business class seats, with their focus on sleeping comfort, are also attractive. In 2013 JAL was the first Japanese airline to be awarded Best Business Class Airline Seat in the Skytrax World Airline Awards. The airline’s JAL SKY SUITE, in which it takes much pride, adopts a seating layout that enables unobstructed access to the aisle from all seats. The length of the bed is approximately 188 centimetres, with a width of approximately 65 centimetres. The SKY SUITE is fitted with a personal screen that is the largest in its class, at 23 inches, and achieves a private space evocative of a single room.

JAL’s allowances for checked baggage are also very generous. Economy class passengers have a free allowance of two checked bags, weighing up to 46 kilograms (23 kilograms per piece), and business and first class passengers are allowed three bags, weighing up to 96 kilograms (32 kilograms per piece).

Flying JAL’s international routes also offers multiple benefits for travel within Japan. For example, tourists to Japan flying on an airline in the oneworld alliance to which JAL belongs, may use the YOKOSO/ Visit Japan Pass to over 39 urban destinations in Japan. The pass allows bookings to be made over up to five sectors (minimum one sector) on flights operated by JAL or its affiliate, Japan Transocean Air (JTA), at discounted fares.
