JAL adds first class seat on domestic routes

5th Jan 2007

Japan Airlines Corp has decided to add first-class seats to domestic routes as part of measures aimed at reviving its business, the Nikkei reported, without citing sources. Starting later this year, JAL will add some 10-15 first-class seats on the Boeing 777 planes it flies on certain domestic routes, such as Tokyo-Osaka and Tokyo-Sapporo, the business daily said.

The first-class fares will cost at least 5,000 yen more than a regular seat, it said.

Rival All Nippon Airways Co Ltd focuses on domestic routes and has already had good success with its premium-class seating, which is priced around 5,000 yen more than regular seats, the report said.
