If you want to try out Japan Airlines' (JAL) brand new seats on SKY SUITE 777 which JAL will roll out on the Tokyo Narita - London Heathrow route from January 9 2013 but cannot afford to fly in their premium cabin and has missed the limited demo at JAL Welcome! New Sky Cafe at Aoyama, here's your second chance! For a limited time, JAL has cooperated with Hills Cafe/Space and opened the "JAL Welcome! New Sky Cafe" at Roppongi Hills. Just like last time, there are demo units of the new seats. However there's no mention of the sample business class menu this time.
