Japan Airlines has taken delivery of its first A350 XWB at the Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France.
The airline has ordered 31 A350 XWB aircraft, made up of 18 A350-900s and 13 A350-1000s.
JAL’s A350-900, the first aircraft produced by airbus for JAL, is configured in a premium three-class layout, with 12 seats in First Class, 94 in Class J and 263 in Comfort Economy.
The airline will initially operate the A350-900 on high frequency domestic routes, while the larger A350-1000 will fly on the carrier’s long-haul international network. The first aircraft will enter service on the airline’s Haneda-Fukuoka route at the start of September.
Airbus says its A350 XWB’s Airspace by Airbus cabin is the “quiestest of any twin-aisle” and offers passengers and crew “the most modern in-flight products for the most comfortable flying experience.”
