ANA doubles New York

New York Kennedy Airport is to see a doubling of ANA services from Tokyo-Narita from the start of the winter season 28 October.  The nearly 13-hour flight is operated by a three-class Boeing 777-300ER without any competition from American carriers.

ANA says the increase in seats on the route will allow the airlines to capitalise on the growth in demand for connections between Asia and North America.

Last October ANA became the first carrier to operate the all new Boeing 787 and to date has taken delivery of 11.  The introduction has not been without problems with some criticism of the new aircraft’s unique dimmable windows.

ANA last month grounded five 787s after tests revealed a risk of engine corrosion but this also seems to have been resolved.  Japan Air Lines has likewise experienced engine problems with its Pratt & Whitney offering.  ANA is powered by Rolls-Royce. www.ana.co.jp
