ANA unveils new first and business class products

29 Jul 2013

ANA has revealed the new bedding, amenities and menus to be provided in first and business class from September, on routes departing from Japan bound for North America and Europe. All aircraft liveries will also feature the tagline "Inspiration of Japan" starting late August.

In first class, the ultra-light comforters are made from Teijin fibres by Nishikawa Sangyo, a leading Japanese bedding manufacturer since 1566. The mattress will feature a structure that disperses body pressure, while the "Angel Float" pillow offers a flexible fit in all resting positions.


Blankets are made with cashmere and organic cotton.

Passengers will also be provided soft double-sided knitted loungewear, which can be taken home after the flight.



Business class' new bedding and amenities will also be available on all long-haul routes departing from Japan to North America and Europe, except Honolulu.

The bed pads will be Nishikawa Sangyo’s "Air Cyclone" product, customised to fit the airline’s Business Staggered seats. The three-layer structure and moderate resistance of the material allows passengers to turn over while sleeping with ease. The airline will also provide structural pillows from Nishikawa Sangyo that fit the passenger’s neck and head perfectly. The bed pads will only be available on B777-300ERs and B787-8s equipped with Business Staggered seats.


The amenity kit will be designed by L’Occitane, and include a 5 ml bottle of serum, an ultra-rich lip balm, a toothbrush and toothpaste, eye mask, earplugs, tissues and cotton wool pads.

New menus are designed and produced by an in-flight meal team of renowned chefs, beverage specialists and ANA chefs. Among some of the highlights are rose, lychee, and raspberry croissants created by Pierre Herme, and Sekiyou – a rich traditional Japanese breakfast including a classic thick omelet produced by the Yugawara brand.


Meanwhile, all liveries will be adorned with the tagline “Inspiration of Japan” from late August. The Japanese flag will also be printed to the front of the aircraft.

Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific also unveiled new business and first class products this month (see here and here).
