ANA plans extensive onboard revamp for spring

By Rick Lundstrom

Premium Economy meals on ANA will debut April 1

All Nippon Airways will expand dining options and onboard comfort items starting March 1.

Until now, only ANA Mileage Club members traveling on Business Class were able to pre-order their meals, and their choices were limited to options from Japanese cuisine or international cuisine. Starting from March 1, all Business Class passengers will be able to select their meals on the ANA website up to 24 hours before departure. Travelers will be able to choose from several international cuisine options as well as a selection of Japanese cuisine.

On flights departing from Japan to North America (except Honolulu), Europe, Southeast Asia, and India, Business Class passengers will be able to pre-order the full range of available dishes from ANA’s THE CONNOISSEURS collaboration meal program. These cuisines have been created in partnership with elite chefs from across the world.

Also starting March 1, First Class and Business Class Japanese cuisine tableware will be upgraded. Starting in April, passengers flying in Premium Economy and Economy Class on North America (except Honolulu) and Europe routes will also have access to expanded dining options, with a range of additional upgraded menu items being available at 2,500 yen (about US$23). Passengers can select premium menu options for their in-flight meals up to 24 hours prior to departure.

Business Class amenity kits earmarked for spring introduction

In addition to expanded dining options, ANA will be offering upgraded sleepwear and amenities. Starting on March 1, First Class passengers will receive feather comforters from Nishikawa Sangyo designed to boost breathability and heat retention. The new pillow features white duck down from Hungary that absorbs and releases moisture, maximizing comfort. Both the comforter and pillow covers are made from 100% Egyptian cotton. A new blanket and cardigan will also be available for First Class passengers.

Business Class travelers will have access to high-quality feather comforters from Maruhachi Products as well as a dual-layer pillow with a 100% Egyptian cotton cover. Newly designed cardigans and pajamas will be added to the offering.

On March 1, ANA will introduce revamped Globe-Trotter amenity kits supplied by FORMIA which aim to bring an extra touch of luxury to the flight experience. First Class kits will include The Ginza’s Essence Empowering Set of cosmetic solutions while Business Class Kits offer selections from Kose Sekkisei MYV.

ANA will change the cosmetic selection every three to four months. The kits will be included in First Class on all international routes and in Business Class on North America (except Honolulu), Europe and Oceania routes
