All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-star airline for seven consecutive years, will launch the first Airbus A380 service between Narita and Honolulu, Hawaii on May 24th.
The aircraft will provide maximum comfort to up to 520 passengers with its premium layout seating: The upper deck is home to eight First Class suites, 56 Business Class seats that convert to fully flat beds and 73 Premium Economy seats. The main deck will have 383 Economy Class seats, including 60 couch seats. This makes ANA the first in Japan to introduce a couch seat concept. Each couch is comprised of three or four seats and passengers are able to lie on the seats by folding up the leg rests.
On the same day ANA will open its new lounge in Honolulu which will be the largest lounge in the airport.
Designed as the ideal space for passengers and families to unwind and relax prior to departure, the Honolulu lounge will house a number of innovative features designed to increase comfort and convenience. The lounge will even offer direct boarding access for passengers seating in the plane's upper deck as well as a family area complete with toys, books and everything else to keep young travelers entertained.
