JAL Boeing 787

oneworld member Japan Airlines is pretty excited about their new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, so much so that they’ve even got a special website (in Japanese) to show off the new plane (hat tip to Pak’s JAL Blog).   

Their partner American Airlines must be pretty excited too, because they created a dedicated webpage to promote the start of JAL’s 787 Dreamliner service between Boston and Tokyo:

American Airlines continues to open more doors to Asia. Working with fellow oneworld member Japan Airlines, we will launch nonstop service between Boston and Tokyo Narita on April 22 on a brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Boasting advanced technology and an innovative cabin environment with larger windows and new lighting features, the 787 Dreamliner provides a peaceful and comfortable environment across the Pacific.

And to celebrate the occasion, American is offering a big fare sale, Double AAdvantage Miles and bonus Business ExtrAA points.

    What’s lowest business
    Rt fare?

  • aadvantagegeek said,

    Hi Michael – I couldn’t find anything lower than about $4,600 round-trip on the 787. Premium economy was $3,300, which surprised me. I expected it to be around $2,300, which is just a little over half the cost of Business and about twice the price of economy. Oh well, it’s not like fare pricing makes much sense anyway. :-) Thanks for the question.

  • Dave said,

    how long is the flight?

  • aadvantagegeek said,

    @ Dave – It’s a long flight; 13:40 to Tokyo, and 12:50 minutes coming back. That’s a long time, even in first class.

  • Kaka said,

    I just booked a ticket with Japan Airlines. I told my travel agency my AAdvantage number but I can’t find the reservation on the American Airlines website. I know it is a codeshare flight, but do you know if we have to book under American airlines to qualify for this discount? Thanks.

    I was able to book a RT using coach outbound on AA (upgraded to business) and business return on the JAL 787, for under $1900 all-in. Had to hunt for it, though.
