Japanese carrier ANA has released the first images of its new cabin products which will appear on the B777-300ER serving the Tokyo-New York route from February 2010.
The images show a suite product (called ANA Suite Square) in first class, with a 23-inch touchscreen LCD TV, which ANA says is the largest in its class. Configuration will be two rows of 1-2-1 making a total of eight suites.
Business class features a fully-flat bed, with a “150 per cent larger” slide out table. Named “ANA Business Staggered”, the product will be configured in a staggered 1-2-1 layout (giving aisle access to all seats), with a total of 68 seats in the cabin.
