    Update: JAL has uploaded a new seat maps on its booking engine. Details here: JAL updated its 787 longhaul seat map

    It will have MAGIC-V as expected. No mention of C seats used. Could be an unannounced product or just the Skyrecliner

    2-3-2 in economy! The plane is supposed to seat eight abreast, or possibly nine abreast with really narrow seats, and it's wider than the widebody Airbuses.

    I wonder if this is really JAL's final answer on seat config...

    The config loaded is the same as 763's A41. Could be they just did a quick and dirty hack to load that config instead. But then there's no galley/lav info on the map, so it is something made specifically for 787...

    But according to Boeing's website 787-8 only carries 210-250 passengers. I assume 250 is an all Y config. If they add 1 extra seat per row, i.e. 30 more Y seats, it will be 267, which exceeds the max number on Boeing's website :confused:

    Must just be a 767 seat map, then.

    This Boeing brochure assumes a 8/44/182 three-class config with 22 rows of 9 abreast Y seating (which would be cramped like a domestic 777). It looks like you could get four rows of J in the front cabin and up to ten in the middle cabin, or alternatively 18 rows of Y, then 12 rows of Y in the rear cabin.

    Interesting. But the F shown in Boeing's brochure isn't really international F in today's standard :p

    Could it be operational restrictions that limits the number of seats JAL can put in Y? Say if they add more Y seats, it will exceed the MTOW with the fuel needed on the way to NRT? I guess we will have to wait to find out more when the official seat map is uploaded on the seat map page on JAL site

    The domestic 777 are 10 seats across , no? So 9 abreast would not be a stretch on the 787?

    If we were talking about a crap third-world airline like AF or EK, yes, but I don't see JL subjecting passengers to that kind of seat width on a transpac flight. On a <2 hr flight to FUK or OKA it's somewhat acceptable.

    The 250 pax cap is the max allowed due to evacuation capabilities.
