Boeing has made this announcement:
Boeing has delivered the first of three 787-10 airplanes (JA900A) to ANA (All Nippon Airways), the original launch customer of the 787 Dreamliner. With this milestone delivery, ANA becomes the first airline in Asia to operate the entire Dreamliner family.
As a stretch of the popular 787-9, the 787-10 carries a total of 330 seats in a standard two-class configuration, adding about 40 more passengers, while setting new benchmarks for fuel efficiency and operating economics with 25 percent better fuel per seat.
This delivery marks the 67th Dreamliner to join ANA’s fleet of 36 787-8s and 30 787-9s, the largest 787 fleet in the world. The SKYTRAX rated five-star airline plans to operate the new super-efficient 787-10 on its popular Tokyo-Singapore route.
ANA made this announcement:
All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-Star airline for seven consecutive years, has announced that its new Boeing 787-10 arrived in Japan on March 31, 2019, from Boeing’s manufacturing facility in Charleston, SC. Among a range of upgrades, the advanced aircraft features upgraded seats with enhanced comfort and functionality in both Premium Economy and Economy Class.
“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 latest technology.”
The Boeing 787-10 is scheduled to begin flying on April 26, 2019, from Tokyo-Narita to Changi-Singapore before it begins service from Narita Airport to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport on July 1, 2019. These routes aim to meet the high demand for flights connecting prominent locations in Asia and will allow Japan to serve as a convenient connecting point for flyers.
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 been updated to include swipe-to-search ability and support for five additional languages – which brings the total to 11. The high capacity aircraft also offers the popular “Full Flat” seats, in the Business Class cabin. Furthermore, the next-generation “ANA Flight Path” map will be added to the flights, using 3D mapping to provide tourism guides and restaurant recommendations from Japan’s largest travel review site, 4 travel.
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 as part of its commitment to bring top-of-the-line aircraft and technology to travelers.
