Japan Airlines restarted non-stop service linking Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with Tokyo Narita Airport on Monday.

The route had been discontinued in 2001 and will be operated four days per week – on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays – using a Boeing 787- Dreamliner. The Tokoy-based airline will begin daily service between the two cities on March 20, 2016.

JAL will operate the flight alongside two daily codeshares operated by American Airlines that are part of the two airlines’ transpacific joint business venture.

The Dreamliner has 38 25.5”-wide open suites in business class that extend to a bed with a 74” length, in a 2-2-2 configuration. It has 35 seats in premium economy, each with a seat pitch of 42” and width of 19.5”, as well as 88 standard seats in coach.
