World's No.1 Economy Class Seats

JAL's economy class seat for international routes has been awarded the Best Economy Class Airline Seats award, which is given to the world's most outstanding economy class seats, at the 2015 World Airline Awards, hosted by SKYTRAX.

This is the second category win for Japan Airlines at the Skytrax World Airline Awards. Japan Airlines was also recognized as the first Japanese airline to receive the top honor in the Best Economy Class Airline Seats category.

JAL SKY WIDER Ⅱ was a winner of the Good Design Award in 2015.


There is a huge improvement in the additional 5cm space in both the front and the back of economy seats. This feature has been much appreciated.
