    The beautiful new interior of the ANA Boeing 787. Utterly fabulous! I can't wait until it comes to the States next year.

    Economy class looks comfy. Can't wait until Air Canada gets their first in late 2013. Should be a more comfortable flying experience with the higher humidity in the cabin.

    The 787 has been delayed a number of times so it'll be nice when it starts flying commercially next year. The larger windows look awesome as does the single middle seat in business class.

    Just wondering if the seats recline in Economy.

    Cathay Pacific introduced these fixed seats where the cushioning slides down, negating the need to recline.

    It didn't go down well and they are now in the process of taking them out!

    I don't like it, it feel too plasticish like it was made from the recycled blue made-in-china plastic bags you'd get from a cheap vegetable market and food court trays, personally I really like Swiss Air. My flying and comfort experiance with them was ace!

    ehhh... I don't like that ANA interior... what happened to the "open" architecture of the 787? Oh right that doesn't generate revenue. Looks boring and uninspired to me.

    Wow this looks like a you're in a relaxed lounge, or spa.

    the ANA business class, while stylish, doesn't make you feel welcomed or comfy.icon_sad.gif

    Looks nice in both J and Y.

    Still have no clue how AA will configure theirs. F/J/Y or just J/Y.



    I'm curious as well about how airlines here in the States will configure theirs. I'm noticing that JAL and ANA are offering, as of now, two classes of service on the 787. I'm quite certain that a number of airlines will have a first class since this aircraft, which is slightly larger than the 767, can accommodate up to three classes.

    I still think it's a very nice looking interior; it matches ANA's blue and white paint scheme quite well. Besides, this is just a 'prototype' of sorts and changes are still possible and will, in all likelihood, be made before it's first commercial flight.

    For comparison purposes, here is the current interior on an ANA Boeing 777:

    I took a business class on a A380 for my flight from LAX to Melbourne, wasn't too impressed it the end. This seems more impressive than the A380.

    Naturally it's understood that airlines choose the interior configuration they want. A mega-plane, like the A380 or the coming 787, gives them more options.

    I'd be interested in what is planned for US domestic flights in First Class, which is what I fly most often. I gather what we're seeing here is mostly for very long Pacific or Atlantic flights.

    I am as well. We have yet to see a rendering, let alone a real mock-up, of a 787 for American, United/Continental, and Delta. Although Continental is going to be the first U.S. airline to fly the plane from Houston to Lagos and Houston to Auckland.

    Here are some prices I looked up on ANA from various cities to Tokyo (Narita), round-trip in business class for one adult from May 2nd-May 16th, 2012:
    -NYC (JFK); $6.072
    -Washington, D.C. (Dulles); $6,151
    -Chicago (O'Hare); $5,951
    -San Francisco; $5,411
    -Los Angeles; $3,781

    I'm an aviation geek as well. I love airplane-related things so much that I will actually fly a bit out of my way to get on a Boeing 777 to my final destination.

    Like Southbeach1500 said, the 787, in all likelihood, won't be flown domestically. It was built to connect 'under-served' city pairs or so-called second-tier city pairs; for example, Boston-Tokyo, Houston-Lagos, Montreal-Tokyo, and Bangkok-Brussels. The 787 will provide desirable economics that a plane as large as the 777 or 340 could not.

    You've got to try a flight on an A380, they are truly awesome aircraft. How does a thing that big get off the ground? icon_eek.gif

    I saw a few of them on the ground in Sydney the other day and they were being pushed past 747 400s which looked like toys in comparison...

    One thing I've not seen on a plane before until recently, is a staircase going down under the economy cabin to the toilets. This was on a Lufthansa A340 600. Amazing new innovation!

    First time I saw one take off here in MIA the thing that struck me was how quiet it was. This coming right after a Martinair Cargo MD-11 roared off the same runway just 2 minutes earlier.




    As a kid (late 60s) I would go out on the observation deck at the Montreal airport and watch the planes take off and land. They were so noisy I would sometimes plug my ears otherwise the eardrums would actually start hurting. Probably the worse offender was the old Vickers Viscount (flown by Air Canada). Its' 4 Rolls-Royce turbine engines had a high-pitch screech (no other word for it) that would have to be heard to be believed.

    Forty years later and the A380 makes less noise then many aircraft built in the 1990s. I am still amazed at the technological advances in aviation in just my lifetime.

    All I know is ANA is the best for me. They are extremely comfortable, at least business class was, economy can get uncomfortable after five hours, bu I'm used to it.

    The new set up is a little outlandish but comfort is cool with me, and I like to sleep when I go to Japan.

    ANA's Boeing 787 landed today at Tokyo Haneda Airport after the long flight from Seattle's Boeing Field.
