The airline will also be expanding its JAL Sky Suite 777 on its Boeing 777-300ERs to its Tokyo Narita-Los Angeles flights starting in November 2013, and Tokyo Narita-Chicago flights starting in January 2014.  In addition, JAL  will also be introducing the Sky Suite 767 on its Boeing 767-300ER aircraft to its Tokyo Narita-Vancouver and Tokyo Narita-Kuala Lumpur routes, beginning in December 2013 and January 2014, respectively.
