All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced it is updating its Boeing 777-300ER planes that it uses for select flights. Starting August 2, the aircraft will feature the newly designed First and Business Class seats, upgraded seating for Premium Economy, as well as unique design features for Economy Class on its Tokyo-London route. ANA has plans to retrofit a total of 12 Boeing 777-300ER planes. The carrier has not revealed which other routes will feature the upgraded products.
The new First Class seat is called The Suite. The new First Class product features carefully designed couch seating and offers a massive 43-inch 4K monitor for passengers to enjoy. The monitor can be controlled with a smartphone and can manage everything from adjusting your seat to enjoying programming during the flight. The enhanced First Class cabin will also boast privacy partitions that can be removed if you wish to join your seat with your travel companion's. The First Class cabin showcases luxe dark wood finish features and has specialty lighting that is supposed to enhance the overall experience.
The new Business Class seating is actually pretty similar to the First Class seats. Called The Room, this seating option is among the largest Business Class seats in the industry. There are privacy partitions for each seat that can be removed to combine seating. The monitors are almost as large as those in First Class, and there is ample room for those who need to get work done during flight.
The new Premium Economy and Economy seats will feature new upholstery showcasing uniquely Japanese designs. The ergonomically designed seats offer greater comfort, and passengers will enjoy the adjustable headrests as well as upgraded touch screen monitors.
