ANA Premium Economy

Japan’s largest airline group, ANA, is introducing further improvements to its Premium Economy service on long haul international routes.  From 1 June routes where Premium Economy is already available will see an enhanced level of service, and from September, it will be extended to a number of international destinations on which it was not previously available.  Whilst the normal Economy Class meal is served an extra course and sparking wine will be added to the menu.

Premium Economy is currently available on the four routes between Narita and Chicago, Washington DC and Munich, and between Haneda and Los Angeles, to passengers who have purchased Economy Class tickets at regular rates.  From Friday 1 June, the Premium Economy service will be further enhanced to provide sparkling wine and soup in addition to regular Economy Class meals.

From September, the Premium Economy service will also be introduced sequentially on routes between Narita and New York, London, Frankfurt, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Paris, where a new and vastly improved seat will make its debut.  On Boeing 777 the Economy layout is nine abreast.  In the premium product this is reduced to eight. www.ana.co.jp
