JAL: First Airline in the World to Introduce Euphony Sound

Japan Airlines becomes the first airline in the world to offer passengers the latest advancements in Safran Seats. In both the First and Business Class suites, passengers can enjoy the Euphony sound solution, which eliminates the need for traditional headsets. Developed in partnership with Devialet, an expert in acoustical engineering, this technology provides an immersive audio experience.

Safran Seats: Optimal Back Support

Additionally, the new Active Backrest mechanism ensures optimal support throughout the flight, tailored to the individual passenger’s preferences.

Inside JAL’s Luxurious First Class Cabin Suites

In the JAL First Class cabin, travelers will find six luxurious suites. Each suite features a spacious independent seat and a side seat that can be used when the primary seat is in a bed position.

The primary seat can be transformed into an 80″ bed with high shells and doors for maximum privacy. The suite can even accommodate up to three people, with the primary seat, side seat, and adjacent ottoman providing ample space. Passengers will also appreciate the numerous storage options, such as a wardrobe, sizeable under-ottoman space, and an insulated drinks compartment.

43″ In-Flight Entertainment Screen

To enhance their in-flight entertainment experience, travelers can use the 43″ entertainment screen, which offers a truly immersive cinematic experience. And with the wireless suite control unit, passengers have full control over their personal suite environment.

Inside Business Class on JAL’s Airbus A350-1000

The new JAL Business Class cabin offers a total of 54 suites. These suites are arranged in a staggered configuration, providing passengers with improved space and comfort during their flight. The Business Class seat has the latest technology, including Euphony and the Active Backrest.

To ensure privacy, the seat features a high shell and a transparent door, which are distinctive design elements of Japan Airlines. The wide seat and optimized seat kinematics enhance the in-flight experience by providing luxurious comfort for all passengers.

Additionally, the console has a meal table that deploys in a single piece, maximizing space and allowing passengers more room for work or leisure activities.

Furthermore, there is ample storage space under the ottoman where passengers can conveniently stow their carry-on bags and personal belongings.

Premium Economy on JAL’s A350-1000

In Premium Economy, the 24 seats prioritize passenger comfort and privacy. A fixed backshell and a large divider between the seats, ensure that each passenger’s personal space is preserved during the flight.
