Jan 20, 2017 No Comments by

Japan Airlines will finally offer 787-9 service on its daily Tokyo Narita to Sydney service effective 26 March 2017. The airline presently offers a four class configured Boeing 777-300ER. The change to 787 will mean First Class will no longer be offered to Sydney.

Japan Airlines’ 787-9 a configured in Business, Premium Economy and Economy Class. The Business Cabin features the new JAL SKY SUITE in a staggered 2-2-2 configuration.


The JAL SKY PREMIUM (Premium Economy) is configured in 2-3-2 cross section.

Where Japan Airlines offers a unique selling point is in the Economy cabin. It is the only airline offering 8 across seating (2-4-2) on a 787 aircraft as opposed to the more high density and now common 9 across seating (3-3-3 configuration) by other 787 operators. The Economy cabin is marketed as JAL SKY WIDER II.

From Sydney both QANTAS and ANA-All Nippon Airways offer flights to Tokyo however unlike JAL they operate to Tokyo’s Haneda airport.
