JAL 787-9, NRT-KUL-NRT Inaugural

Recommended Posts

Malaysianwings was invited by Japan Airlines (Asia & Oceania Region) and Malaysia Airports, to welcome JAL's B787-9 Dreamliiner. This aircraft replaces the older Boeing 767-300 begining 1st September 2016.

Dubbed as JAL Sky Suite 787, it offers one of the best product in the industry, the Skytrax Best Business Class Airline Seat (2013) and the Skytrax Best Economy Class Airline Seat (2015). Here's a small coverage.

You can now avoid having seats with no windows, 45A/K and 56A/K. How thoughtful of them.

Gracefully touches down on 32L at 5.18pm, JL 723 were a little ahead of schedule as well as the thunderstorm that were brewing in the northeast side of the airport.

You can trust the Japanese in keeping their plane spotlessly clean, complemented further by the signature dramatic stormy sky of KUL.

The ground staffs at C2 were excited when seeing her passing MTB. There were also spotters there to view her.

Good one! Ah Ong is everywhere in that event and over shadow JL B789.

 

Ah Kong, inflight meal only for display and no chance for you all to taste ?

Was all that inflight food there the real stuff or of the very realistic looking fakes one often see displayed outside Japanese Restaurants (or at Kappabashi Kitchenware Town, Tokyo) ? :)

I think JAL would have been very foolish if they had allowed sampling of the stuff there, if real - more than likely to have been stone cold, dehydrated for some, soggy for others, if left out for display already - not gonna impress anyone's palate :D
