More details on MAGIC-V and JAL Skyrecliner


Japan Airlines (JAL) has finally updated its website on the new business class seats JAL Skyrecliner and the new inflight entertainment system MAGIC-V. These new products will be available on the following routes: NRT-SIN, NRT-HAN, HND-PEK, and HND-SIN.

Now you can even play Street Fighter during your flights :) However, MAGIC-V will have the same video channels as MAGIC-III, which I find a bit disappointing. I was hoping I could watch the entire season of some TV drama instead of just one episode or have more choices of movies. According to the MAGIC-V page, JAL will phase in MAGIC-V over time on other routes (maybe when JAL finally receive the new 787's?)

For the new 763 configuration, as reported before, there will be 10 less Y seats than the previous configuration. JAL has uploaded the seat maps in their reservation system. The changes are:

- Row 19 and 21 are without windows (vs. only row 20)
- Entire row 23 is removed.
- 65DEG are removed.
