JAL goes LUX

Necessity has always been the mother of invention. That is why limited space is something the Japanese have become experts in. So it is no wonder the fine flying experts at JAL (Japan Air Lines) have created along with James Park Associates’ the new “JAL Suite”. This first class seating will be available in their new fleet of Boeing 777-300ER aircrafts. These individual private suites were designed by London-based James Park Associates (JPA) and manufactured by Contour. Upholstered in grey leather, the seat’s shape is basically a bolted down traditional armchair with facing ottoman, above which is a 19-inch TV screen. “The console features stowage spaces for bags and small items, a large side shelf, literature pockets and a laptop power point, whilst the ottoman can be used as a seat, should the passenger choose to dine with a partner.” The best part is you get to sleep like a normal human and slobber on your pillow as opposed to all over your shoulder.
