Beginning March 20, Japan Airlines will offer a daily nonstop flight from Los Angeles International Airport to Osaka International Airport. The flight is designed to support tourism to Japan’s Kansai region, home to popular destinations such as Kyoto, Nara and Kobe.
Guests on Japan Airlines’ new flight will travel onboard a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the most fuel-efficient aircraft made by Boeing. The plane is constructed of composite materials that help create an improved cabin environment, including increased humidity and lower cabin pressure. Additionally, the sawtooth design on the aircraft’s engines reduces noise levels.
The aircraft offers 42 business class seats and 144 economy seats. In economy, a 2-4-2 seat configuration allows for more space for guests, as compared to the common 3-3-3 configuration.
Other cabin perks include higher ceilings, dimmable electronic windows and in-cabin LED lighting, intended to improve the cabin ambience. Guests onboard the Boeing 787 can also enjoy dozens of digitized Japanese comics via the plane’s Sky Manga in-flight entertainment system.
