Japan Airlines has been in possession of its first two 787s since last Sunday when it took delivery of Airplanes 23 and 33. Both departed Everett the following day for Tokyo - Haneda and Narita Airports, respectively - and will begin formal commercial service on April 22 when the Japanese capital is linked for the first time to Boston's Logan International Airport.
The aircraft are outfitted with 186 seats, the airline's long-haul configuration and feature 42 lie-flat B/E Aerospace MiniPod seats in a 2-2-2 configuration for executive class passengers, and in economy 144 Recaro CL3510 seats in 2-4-2 arrangement. JAL is also the launch customer for the i8000 series in-flight entertainment from Thales.
Like All Nippon Airways, JAL has added a stand-up bar unit from JAMCO at door two below the LED-lit archway. However, this bar looks to be exclusively for its premium customers, not those in economy.
Additionally, JAL has tailored the 787's custom LED lighting to fit its branding with four distinct color schemes to reflect the Japanese seasons with green, blue, orange and pink lighting for the aircraft's four cabin zones.
In addition to the video walk-through above (which can be compared to ANA's configuration), I've included more than 200 photos of the delivery ceremonies, interior tour, external walk-around and flyaway of both JA825J and JA822J below the fold.
