Japan Airlines has revealed its new unique premium-economy, business-class, and first-class seats that are fully customised with Safran seats for 13 Airbus A350s. Japan Airlines will be the first airline to offer the latest technologies from Safran Seats for both first- and business-class suites such as Euphony, Safran Seats’ headset-free sound solution developed in collaboration with Devialet, an expert company in acoustical engineering and Active Backrest, a new mechanism which provides more support at the backrest level in all flight phases and is developed to suit all passenger profiles.
The first-class cabin will be equipped with six luxurious suites. Each suite will have a wide, independent seat for the passenger, with a side seat for use when the primary seat is in bed position. The primary seat converts to an 80” bed with high shells and doors for utmost privacy. The suite can accommodate up to three people in flight with both the primary and side-seat paired with the adjacent ottoman. Multiple stowage provides plentiful space for belongings, such as a wardrobe, large under-ottoman space and an insulated drinks compartment. Passengers can enjoy an immersive cinematic experience with the 43” in-flight entertainment screen paired with Euphony, the headset free audio experience and an individual wireless suite control unit.
Victoria Foy, CEO Safran Seats said: “Safran Seats and Japan Airlines have a close relationship for several decades and it is an honour to be a key part of the journey from co-creation with Japan Airlines for its brand new A350-1000s. It is also an important milestone for Safran Seats and we’re excited that passengers will experience our latest innovations with the launch of Euphony and Active Backrest, offering First- and Business-Class passengers a unique way of enjoying their flight.”
