All Nippon Airways (ANA) completed (21-Jul-2019) a five year project with Acumen Design Associates and Kengo Kuma to transform the interiors of a number of its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with a “radical seating and cabin interior design”. The project covered a redesign of ANA’s customer and brand experience, including the design of all the seating, galley entrance areas, social spaces and cabin interior design across all four cabin classes. Key details of premium cabins include:
- First class (‘The Suite’): New first class cabin is “the most spacious fully-enclosed seating ever seen on an ANA aircraft”, including a 43 inch, 4K personal monitor and a seat which “transitions seamlessly into an expansive bed”. Each seat features a movable partition, which can create a paired seating arrangement for couples or passengers who wish to socialise or dine together;
- Business class (‘The Room’). New business class cabin includes a new business class seat designed to offer passengers more flexibility in how they fly. The cabin includes a mixed forward and rearward layout and a wide ‘sofa’ seat that is almost double the width of ANA’s previous business class offering. The business class cabin also includes sliding doors and a separate sliding screen to the aisle for privacy, a 24 inch 4K monitor and “discrete personal stowage options”, which include a vanity mirror and charging ports for personal devices.
