23 April 2019 - Today at Narita International Airport, ANA All Nippon Airways have revealed the interiors of much awaited A380 "Flying Honu" for the first time to media. I was invited to be one of the first to see it and share it here on my blog.
ANA A380 have capacity total of 520 seats in 4 cabin classes as below:
|Cabin||Number of Seats|
A total of 383 economy class occupied entire lower deck of the A380. The seat pitch is a generous 34" pitch with individual leg rest. Each seat comes with power and USB outlets as well.
Towards the rear of the economy class cabin, there is a self service bar for economy passengers.
Economy Class - ANA Couchii
ANA Couchii can transform economy class seats into a flat space - perfect for family traveling together for extra space and comfort. It is located in the rear of the economy cabin. COUCHii seats will have 32" of pitch.
There is a family powder room (not toilet) in the rear of ANA Couchii section.
Premium Economy Class
All premium economy seats will feature a 38" pitch and most seats will have a 15.6" entertainment screen. The tray tables will also swivel 90 degrees so customers can still maneuver even when the tray table is open.
All business class seats will offer direct aisle access, are fully flat and feature 18" Entertainment screens.
The first class suites look like a modernized version of the existing ANA suite found aboard all 777 products aircraft which are essentially composed of a lay-z-boy in a cubicle and will feature a massive 32" personal TV. The suites will also include sliding doors.
What do you make out of these interiors? ANA A380 will be exclusively used between Tokyo and Honolulu. I personally like the Economy Class which a lot of emphasis and unique concepts (such as powder room) are in place to improve the travel experience.
The first flight of ANA A380 will be on 24th May 2019 from Tokyo Narita to Honolulu. I will be on this inaugural flight to share my details with you. Looking forward to the first A380 flight to Hawaii!
