Looking back, there are plenty of threads from 2010 asking exactly the same thing. Only ANA knows, but when it is announced, I'm sure it will be rapidly posted on this board. Last announcement was in August 2011 for the updates to NRT-CDG (October introduction), -SFO (December) and -LAX (January 2012). So plenty of advance notice for those flights.

I think it is highly unlikely that the remaining 777s will be refitted until after the 3 announced long haul 787 routes are up and running. But by May, basically no chance.

I'm flying Europe to Japan in a month. Does anyone have an opinion (who doesn't on FT?) on the new NH 787 business experience vs. LX Airbus A340-300? I'm more swayed by hard than soft, but your opinions appreciated.

Nice new seats?

Flew NH5 from lax to NRT..great C cabin. Quite spacious. Adequate food but my seat did not want to work. FAs came by dismantled it and reset it but minutes later it refused to move or recline while I was seated in it..I'm 6'3" 225 lbs so I decided that I'm too fat for the seat which worked fine when I wasn't sitting in it.

So I'm checking out the ANA website about the J seats on the 787, and sure enough, the site says:

"This site contains bloadband contents."

That's way too funny!

It will eventually, but as for when only ANA knows - I wouldn't think it will be in the near future though.

LAX-HND is using 772. If they are going to do anything, they will finish off 77W before anything else, and there are still quite a few 77W routes using old seats.

It's just a week shy of April and the ANA website still hasn't listed the 787 flight schedule for FRA to NRT. Anyone have any insight?

You'll know when it's announced on the NH website and loaded into the GDS. Don't believe anything you read before then.

Exactly ^
Rumours of delivery dates keep moving back. Currently suggested that the next 787 will be handed over on 26th March same date as the first one for JAL is supposed to leave Boeing. This would allow the 787 to go daily HND-FRA. But nothing is confirmed, new problems could be identified and Boeing haven't been exactly reliable in this programme - until new aircraft arrive in Japan and ANA officially update their schedule, no one really knows.

I had the same issue on both of my flights with the new C. I think that the sensitivity for the blockage stop is just set too high. Hopefully they can adjust that as it is a pain to basically have to get off of the seat any time I want to adjust it.

Two JAL 787 have left for Japan - but nothing for ANA still.

I'm flying NH5 (new business class) in October with my daughter (12). Any thoughts on better co-seats? forward/behind window or window/aisle of same row?
