American Airlines announced that it plans to launch new daily flights between Los Angeles and Tokyo Haneda on February 11, 2016. The new service is part of the carrier’s joint venture with Japan Airlines.
Flights will depart Los Angeles International Airport at 6 p.m. and arrive in Tokyo at 11:00 p.m. the next day. From Tokyo, flights are scheduled to depart at 1:30 a.m. and arrive back in Los Angeles at 6:20 p.m.
American will operate the service using Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft, equipped with 28 lie-flat seats in business class, 48 seats in Main Cabin Extra, the airline’s premium economy lite section, and 150 seats in economy. Business-class seats are 21” to 26” wide, and offer a bed length of 77”.
The airline said that it had recently secured takeoff and landing time slots at Tokyo Haneda from Japanese authorities, which will allow the carrier to operate the flights.
