Sky Suite Boeing 777-300ERs will now also be deployed on their Tokyo/Narita (NRT/RJAA) - Chicago/O'Hare (ORD/KORD) starting on January 16th, and also on the Frankfurt/Main (FRA/EDDF) route starting in April. All 13 B777-300ERs are expected to be reconfigured by the end of 2014. Meanwhile, from mid-February the Sky Suite Boeing 767-300ERs, which are currently deployed to Vancouver (YVR/CYVR) and Kuala Lumpur/International (KUL/WMKK), will be introduced to Singapore/Changi (SIN/WSSS) on flights JL711 and JL710, to Hanoi/Noi Bai (HAN/VVNB) on flights JL751 and JL752, to Dalian (DLC/ZYTL) on flights JL827 and JL828, and to Seoul/Incheon (ICN/RKSI) on flights JL951 and JL954. Additional cities in Asia plus Hawaii are expected to be added later this year.

Aimed at 'evoking a one-class higher feel', JAL's first Sky Suite 777 entered service on Narita - London/Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) in January 2013, and the Sky Suite 767 on the Narita - Vancouver route in December 2013. In the new configuration, the B777-300ER seats 8 in first, 49 in business, 40 in premium economy, and 135 in economy (232 total), and the B767-300ER seats 24 in business and 175 in economy (199 total).
