Japan Airlines presents the cabin of its future A350-1000s

Japan Airlines took advantage of the announcement of the A350-1000’s imminent entry into its fleet to present the cabins that will equip it.

The 350-1000 will be the flagship of Japan Airlines and will enter service by the end of the year, initially between Tokyo and New York, slightly behind schedule due to supply problems.

The Japanese airline has ordered 13 aircraft of this type, which will replace the 13 777-300ERs in its fleet by 2028.

The cabin configuration of Japan Airlines’ A350-1000

Japan airlines’ A350-1000 is configured in 4 travel classes for a total of 239 seats (5 fewer than the 777).

– First: 4 seats

– Business: 54 seats

– Premium Economy: 24 seats

– Economy: 155 seats

Japan Airlines A350 first class

It comprises six suites closed by sliding doors. The impression of space is enhanced by the elimination of luggage compartments.

Seats are supplied by Safran Seats.

They offer a choice of 3 seating modes: sofa, seat and single bed, or double bed.

The suite also includes a closet for storing clothes.

You’ll also notice the speakers integrated into the headrest, eliminating the need for headphones. Still, we’re curious to see how it performs in use.

The screens are 43″.

Given that there are 6 seats, we’re guessing a 1-1-1 configuration, which could pose a problem for couples.

Again, these are closed suites, also supplied by Safran Seats. There are luggage compartments on the window side only, to reinforce the impression of space.

The screens are 24″.

Premium economy on Japan Airlines’ A350-1000

Configured in a 2-4-2 layout, it features electrically operated recliners – a first in this class of travel. Here too, Safran will supply the seats.

The screens are 16″.

Economy class on Japan Airlines’ A350-1000

There the seats are Recaro, in a 3-3-3 configuration with 42″ pitch and 19″ width.

The screens are 16″.

Bottom line

A very interesting cabin, especially in first and business class, even if we’re a little skeptical about 1-1-1 configurations in first class, as is the case with Lufthansa’s future cabin.

While the economy and premium economy look excellent, the tones seem a little sad.

We leave you with a video to sum it all up.
