All other classes look like incremental improvements upon excellent products, but the one that really caught my eye is how spacious the business class look. Feels a bit like the BA config, but with all seats forward.
Seems like JAL has set the new bar for J in the sky.

It's nice to see a Japanese carrier using colours that aren't white/black/light blue/light timber. I rather like the layers of texture and colour used in the J seat, though it appears that there will be quite a high level of disparity between different seats (ie only outside aisle seats will get the full depth storage units, inside aisle seats appear to get a half depth storage unit and window/centre seats will get nothing) -- I think I would prefer the NH layout...

it looks great... is premium economy very spacious or the guy is very short?? becuase it looks like 40 to 42 inches
They always hire the skinniest people to do these product shots to make them all extra spacious
The girl in regular economy is probably 4.5' tall
Car manufacturers do the same thing in photos showing their supposedly spacious rear-seat legroom in small cars, as well as moving the front seat so far forward no normal-sized person would fit in the front either.

JAL is indeed about 2-years behind ANA in introducing new premium product, so its important they try to catch up.
I've seen the ANA product and its frankly very very good.
The F class cube is almost like the SQ suite, while the lieflat staggered business seat is one of the best out there. Lots of room and privacy.
I am very surprised JL opted to 2-3-2 configuration in business when NH has and the industry is shifting towards a 1-2-1. Does not seem half as spacious as the PR would like to make it.
Also for their premium economy looks to be catch up with ANA, but JAL opts to use a new seat design while NH went with something like an older business class seat. Time will tell which is more comfortable.
