ANA to introduce Dreamliner into Europe

Frankfurt is to become the first European airport to receive the brand new Boeing 787 with ANA non-stop flights beginning from Haneda Tokyo on 21 January 2012.

A new route will complement ANA’s four existing European services from Narita to Charles de Gaulle, Frankfurt, Heathrow and Munich.  This is likely to be popular with regular (and inquisitive) travellers wishing to sample the most advanced airline now flying. 

Larger than the 767, the most obvious difference to its predecessor will be the large windows and innovative interiors.  Not so apparent is the overhead compartments, the largest in the industry.  They are approximately 30% larger than the compartments on the Boeing 777 and have enough space to hold four large-size carry-on bags.  Also worthwhile mentioning discreetly are the washrooms which are equipped with Washlet seats equipped with a hot water washer designed for in-cabin use.  These seats were jointly developed by Toto Ltd, Jamco Corporation and Boeing.

Flight time will be around eight hours.  The seat layout is expected to provide 46 Business Class and 112 Economy. www.ana.co.jp
