Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) plans to introduce premium economy seats, currently available on its long-haul Boeing 777-300ER international flights to Europe and North America, on its Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.
Premium economy seating will be available on the Tokyo Haneda – Frankfurt route from September 1 and will subsequently be introduced on other routes.
The reconfigured aircraft will offer 46 business class seats, 21 premium economy class seats and 102 economy class seats.
ANA is also introducing Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner aircraft on four routes currently served by Boeing 767 and 777 aircraft, beginning in October. The routes are Tokyo Narita – Singapore, Tokyo Narita – Shanghai, Tokyo Narita – Jakarta and Tokyo Haneda – Singapore.
ANA plans to retire all its Boeing 747-400 aircraft in the current fiscal year.
