Appropriately slated as "ANA BUSINESS STAGGERED," every Business class seat has aisle access with our perfectly staggered seat configuration. Each seat reclines 180 degrees to become a fully flat bed, ensuring passengers a good night's sleep. With the class largest 17-inch LCD touch panel wide screen monitor, passengers can enjoy 160 programs of fully digital AVOD movies, video, music and games. For those with an itch to shop, passengers can do in-flight duty free shopping with a tap of their finger.
Trans-Pacific Joint Venture with United: ANA launched the trans-Pacific joint venture with United Airlines in April of 2011. Through the joint venture, the airlines can now connect 295 U.S. cities, 43 Japanese cities, and 11 routes between the two countries with nearly 120 flights per week. What does that mean to ANA passengers? The additional fare and schedule options will offer you more choices and seamless booking on itineraries that combine U.S. flight segments on United; trans-Pacific segments on ANA or United flights; and flights within Japan on ANA.
From August 2012, the new Premium Economy seats have been introduced sequentially to our long-haul international routes on which they were not previously available: JFK, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Frankfurt, London and Paris. Situated at the front of Economy class and separated by a wall, the seat pitch for the new Premium Economy class seat is 10% (4 inches) wider than Economy class at 38 inches. In the Boeing 777-300ER, Economy class seating is arranged in arrays of 9 seats across (2-4-3 or 3-3-3), while Premium Economy has 8 seats across (2-4-2). This makes the seats 19.3 inches (49cm) wide, providing greater comfort.
