JAL to launch Narita-Boston service on April 22


JAL will launch a new service between Boston and Narita. This new joint business flight with American will be the first nonstop by any airline between the two cities and the first nonstop to link Boston directly with Asia.

JAL will operate the route with the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner configured with 42 seats in Business and 144 seats in Economy. JAL Executive Class will be fitted with JAL SHELL FLAT NEO seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, ensuring travelers either a window or aisle seat.

Using the Dreamliner's LED system, JAL created an original cabin lighting design to evoke a sense of the four seasons in Japan such as pink hues reflective of cherry blossoms in spring. The lighting also sets a more conducive environment for slumber, a refreshed wakening, and inflight dining. The aircraft features larger windows and new noise-reducing GEnx engines, providing a tranquil and comfortable travel experience across the Pacific.

Bonus Mileage Offer

To celebrate the new Boston – Tokyo Narita route, AAdvantage and JAL Mileage Bank members can earn double miles every time they fly nonstop between Boston and Tokyo Narita. This offer is valid for travel on purchased, published Business Class and select Economy Class fares on Japan Airlines from April 22 through June 30. To obtain complete offer details, visit or

In addition, beginning June 1, American Airlines will reinstate nonstop service between New York JFK and Tokyo Haneda using its three-class Boeing 777 aircraft. American's New York – Haneda service and Japan Airlines New York – Tokyo Narita service provides customers more travel choices between the East Coast and Asia.

I always pay extra to avoid flying the US carriers for transpacific flights as much as possible. This may be a viable alternative to fly to the east coast if I can;t fly into NY directly

More late night take-offs from Haneda using very noisy fully-loaded 777s, great.

@Harry_Gatto. Yes, it is great. Flew to Europe last week on a late night flight. Gained a whole extra day holiday.
