    20% More Room
    A variety of passengers - young and old, male and female, and those with varying body heights and weights - participated in the development of the JAL Sky Shell Seat. Based on their valuable opinions, the new seat was designed with 20% more room than ordinary Economy seats and a seat pitch of 97 cm in order to provide better relaxation.

    Ensuring Personal Freedom
    With a shell shape covering the back of the seat, the new seat features a mechanism that allows passengers to recline by sliding their seat forward. This means that the seat in front of you will never tilt back into your space when reclining, ensuring greater comfort for you.
