JAL launches New Sky Project


Following a successful IPO this week, Japan Airlines (JL), commonly known as JAL,  has launched the JAL New Sky Project to revamp its in-flight products and services on international routes.

As an initial phase , JAL will introduce a sweeping change to the seat designs in every cabin class on board 13 of its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft , deploying it first on the airline’s daily Narita-London (Heathrow) route from January 2013, and progressively expanding the new revamp onto other European and North American routes such as on the Narita-New York (John F. Kennedy) service.

In addition to improving the seats, JAL will also be extending extra amenities and comfort such as fitting TOTO Washlets in First and Business Class lavatories and providing innovative airweave® mattress pads and pillows on request in Business Class.

JAL will also be introducing new menus on board flights to Europe, North America, Australia and South East Asia to create the ambiance of an exclusive restaurant in the sky.

A team of four Japanese star chefs were brought together to design JAL’s First and Business Class menus using only the freshest and finest-ingredients. Named JAL BEDD to represent the comforts of the full flat beds and also to stand for ‘Dine’, ‘Delicious’ and ‘Dreams’, this new top-class service in First and Business offers the unique experience of a satisfying repast and repose in-flight.

In the new JAL KITCHEN GALLERY, Premium Economy and Economy Class customers will enjoy a wide range of seasonal delicacies from throughout Japan as well as JAL’s popular “AIR Series” of innovative meals created in collaboration with well-known Japanese restaurants.
