Japan Airlines notes good trend in premium cabins on US services

    Japan Airlines (JAL) VP and Southwest regional manager Kiichi Nakajima stated first and business class cabins on the carrier’s Los Angeles services are always almost full, a trend common across JAL’s routes to the US mainland (Travel Watch, 30-May-2019). He said load factor on Japan-Los Angeles services averages above 90%, but added that JAL needs to strengthen sales effort to capture more high end customers for the increased capacity created by the proposed additional Tokyo Haneda slots in 2020.
