  • Japan Airlines has released images of the cabin interiors for its new Airbus A350-1000.
  • The six first-class suites will separated by individual doors, a first for the airline.

Japan Airlines has unveiled the cabin interiors for its new Airbus A350-1000, which it says will become its new flagship aircraft for its international services.

The planes will each have six first-class suites, separated by individual doors in a first for the airline. JAL says that this makes the suites more private and eliminates the need for overhead storage compartments.

The suites will have a choice of three seating modes: Passengers can keep both seats upright as a sofa, pull them both down to make a 80-inch long double bed, or pull one down to have a seat and a single bed.

The suites will have 43-inch TVs, and passengers won't need headphones for the inflight entertainment thanks to speakers built into their headrests, which JAL says is a world first. The headrest also reclines so that passengers can watch and listen to the entertainment even when the seats have been converted into a bed.

The suite has a wardrobe, storage space, what it describes as a "personal minibar" for plastic bottles, and a digital monitor for passengers to speak to flight attendants with.

In information about the new cabin interior, JAL describes the first-class suites as like staying in a "luxury hotel room," being at a "live concert," sitting in a "movie theater," and "relaxing at home."

First-class and business-class passengers will also get an amenity kit, including a toothbrush.

The airline says that it had designed the aircraft's interior "to immerse customers in the elegance of Japanese aesthetics and envelop them in tranquility, providing a serene ambiance that encapsulates the beauty of Japan."

The planes will seat 239 passengers in total across first, business, premium economy, and economy classes.

JAL says it will be launching the new aircraft "before the end of the year," noting that its planned November launch on the Tokyo to New York route was delayed due to supply-chain disruptions.

JAL plans to put 13 of the aircraft into service.
