In economy class, 116 JAL Sky Wider seats will be in a 2-4-2 layout, each with a width of 18” and a pitch of 33”. A power outlet and USB port will be at each seat, as well as a 10.6” monitor.

In addition, a new entertainment system, Magic-VI, will be offered in the cabins, and will have over 300 movies and videos available.
