All Nippon Airways has taken delivery of its
first Boeing 787-10.
The Boeing 787-10 is scheduled to begin
flying on 26 April 2019 between Tokyo Narita and Changi Singapore,
before it begins flights between Narita and Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport
(BKK) on 1 July 2019.
Along with its new, more comfortable seats, the
aircraft's Premium Economy and Economy Class features a six-way
adjustable headrest and the largest touchscreen personal seat
monitor in its class. The seat monitors have also been updated to
include swipe-to-search ability and support for five additional
languages - which brings the total to eleven.
"The 787-10 is a cutting-edge plane and ANA is
honored to be the first Japanese airline to fly the aircraft,"
said Hideki Kunugi, Executive Vice President of ANA. "ANA now has
the distinction of being the only airline in Asia to operate all
models (787-8, 787-9 and 787-10) of the 787 aircraft. The 787
fleet is known for its extremely low noise levels, excellent fuel
efficiency and in-flight comfort, all of which support ANA's
mission to push the standards of air travel by investing in the
ANA plans to acquire a
total of three 787-10s by the end of fiscal year 2020 and
gradually introduce them to its Southeast Asian routes.
