TOKYO, JAPAN — Japan Airlines (JAL) has revealed key operational information regarding its first Airbus A350-1000, promising a new level of in-flight experience with its "unprecedented" cabin products.

The airline announced on January 31st that the aircraft would be deployed on the Tokyo Haneda to New York route starting from November, as part of its Northern Winter schedule. Currently, JAL operates daily flights between the two cities using its Boeing 777-300ER planes.

Japan Airlines (JAL), a member of the Oneworld alliance, has revealed plans to elevate its in-flight experience by updating the cabin specifications of its international flights with the introduction of the Airbus A350-1000. The carrier stated its commitment to delivering a never-before-seen level of comfort to every passenger.

JAL also stated it would share additional information regarding the cabin products of its Airbus A350-1000s at a later date once they are finalized. The airline currently has 13 A350-1000s on order. It also operates 16 smaller A350-900s and has two more on order. The carrier initially revealed its plan to make the A350 its new flagship in May 2021 through a medium-term business update that was released along with its annual financial results.

In May 2021, Japan Airlines (JAL) announced that it would retire its Boeing 777 aircraft and replace them with the Airbus A350-900 for domestic operations. The carrier also stated that it would receive its first A350-1000 in the 2023 fiscal year, starting April 1st, and use the larger aircraft for flights to North America and Europe. The move marks the end of the airline's use of the Boeing 777-300ER, which was previously its preferred long-haul aircraft for international routes.
