Japan Airlines Takes Premium Economy Plunge

Quote:
Japan Airlines has joined the slowly swelling ranks of carriers offering a premium economy class. From the autumn, the new seats will be available on its international services.

The seats will be in a 2-4-2 configuration with a 38in pitch, which is 20% more than its regular economy seats. They will feature on JAL's Boeing 777s operating from Japan to Europe and the US...

Thanks for the info Leelaw... Smile

Now I only wish QF, AA, and CX would do the same....BA's WTP+ is quite nice..and VS have stated their Premium Economy has been a very good source of revenue....

Yes, I saw these seats posted on the JAL website and it makes me wonder. It looks identical to their current C class product, maybe less reclining?

So how majestic is their new C class or F class going to look?
