Having just spent a long night on an overseas flight, there’s nothing about these mattresses — except, perhaps, the price tag — that isn’t appealing.

Japan Airlines has just announced an industry first, bringing even more comfort to the skies in their first class cabin.

Originally the airline used tempur mattresses and pillows in their first class cabin, but after response from their passengers flying in their business class cabin, the airline has rolled out the already established ‘airweave’ mattress and pillow across into their first class cabin.

However, the airline has updated the mattress to include one surface which is firm and a soft reverse side, dubbed “airweave DUAL MODE” the new mattress will be served in First Class in JAL SKY SUITE 777 on their Japan to London, Los Angeles and New York routes. We love the fact that passengers are now able to make different choice by preference and enjoy a more comfortable sleep during flights.

This specially designed airweave ‘DUAL MODE’ was originally created to aid the sleep of Japanese representatives for Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi.

In the airweave mattress, the density of the material is gently changed into many layers to create a comfortable bed functioned with firm and soft at both surfaces separately. Additionally, and cleverly, there is an increased density of material that can perfectly support the waist and provide ideal lying posture.
