Japan Airlines announced it is rolling out completely new aircraft interiors and as well as in-flight Internet on its domestic fleet of Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. The new interiors are also destined for domestic Boeing 777s and 737-800s.
The newly-configured Boeing 767-300ERs will begin to fly the Tokyo-Osaka route starting December 8, 2014.
JAL currently offers four daily flights between the two cities.
