Until now, Japan Airlines (JAL) has not indicated which business class seat will be used on its 787 flight to Boston (BOS). When you try to did a dummy booking of JAL website, it did not show the class and inflight entertainment system in the business class cabin (but MAGIC-V was shown in economy class one). But JAL has recently updated the website to show both the seat and IFE.

To no surprise, JAL will be using also MAGIC-V in the business class cabin (seriously why would they use a different system when MAGIC-V is used in Economy class :p). And for those who were hoping for a new truly lie-flat business class seats, I am sorry to disappoint you. JAL will be using the current generation of longhaul business class seats - JAL Shell Flat NEO. So I guess we need to wait for a few more years till JAL rolls out a truly lie-flat business class seat :(


The current seat map still shows a 2-2-2 configuration in the business class cabin and 2-4-2 configuration in the economy class just like what I posted back in October. For the details of the 787 long-haul seating plan, you can refer to my post here
