ANA will be debuting their reconfigured Boeing 777-300ER on the Tokyo – New York route on 8th November 2019; this B777 will feature the new First Class and Business Class. However, this reconfigured B777 appears to be alternating between Tokyo Haneda and Tokyo Narita in the following arrangement:
8th November – HND to JFK to NRT
9th November – NRT to JFK to HND
10th November – HND to JFK to NRT
On Other Routes
ANA has started to operate the reconfigured B777 on their Tokyo Haneda – London Heathrow route since August 2019. Although there is no given date for its third destination – Frankfurt we can expect to see the reconfigured B777 during the winter season, which runs through March 2020.
ANA New First Class and Business Class Product
The new First Class seats are customised by JAMCO, they are similar to the First Class product installed on the ANA A380.
The seats are equipped with large 43″ 4K monitors, additional privacy-enhancing doors and cushions made in collaboration with Nishikawa Sangyo.
The most impressive update is the new Business Class seat; this is the first actual usage of the Fusio seat manufactured by Safran. Other than having an individual door to provide a more private space, THE Room is also the widest Business Class seat in the world. The large 24″ 4K screen can provide passengers with a great viewing experience.
At first glance this configuration is similar to the Qsuite by Qatar Airways, which was awarded the title of Best Business Class in the world. However, the width of the seat is much wider when compared to the Qsuite and is similar to the Singapore Airlines Business Class.
