Sorry to revive an old thread, but given that more folks have now flown the 787 configs, does anyone have a recommendation on companion seating?

Travelling on this AC with 2 adults + 2-year-old and trying to figure out the best way to keep that situation in check.

Thanks.

In business class you can take one of the even rows for all three of you (C, F, H), or 3/4 of seats in one of the odd rows. Is your child going to have his own seat or be on someone's lap?

I am looking at J seats HND-LAX or HND-IAD next June. Any idea if any of those will have the flat beds by then?

The answer is no -- NH has not announced the introduction of the IOJ interior on any new route except NRT-ORD. Also, no carrier operates HND-IAD -- perhaps you meant NRT-IAD.

Is there any benefit or drawback to sitting in the business bulkhead seat on the international configuration 787? Thanks.

I'm looking at SFO-NRT r/t Feb 1 - Feb 11. Both ways EF.com shows 5A as being occupied and on ANA.co.jp row 5 is completely blocked out.

Any info as to why and if it's possible to get that row?

Row 5 and Row 7 are blocked for elites and/or passengers with infants (as they are bulkhead seats with bassinets). You should be able to request them at check-in if they are available.

Does anyone here know if NH 1009/1010 (new flights to JFK) operated by 77W have the Inspiration of Japan cabins?

If the NH site shows either flight as being operated by a 77W, it has the IOJ cabin. But if you had checked the Master Thread, you would know that these flights are not operated by a 77W every day -- only intermittently.

Thanks for the information sorry to be remedial. Just saw my post (and your response) in that thread several weeks back-my apologies.

Are there bassinet seats in J cabin on the B787 long haul (NRT-SEA) ? I see that row 1 and row 6 are bulkhead seats but there are no indications about bassinets on the seat map. Thanks.

which 787 pek-hnd

I read the master thread as well trying to dig through ANA website.

Thinking about about 787 flight pek-hnd in November, but unable to figure out which config it will use- 158 seats with business staggered or 222 seats with what looks like older biz seats.

Are all intl flights always biz staggered?

Thanks.

No, only long haul routes. HND-PEK will almost certainly use the short haul configuration with Business Cradle seats in C.

There is chest high closet on the windows seats, which makes the seating area feel a little more cramped. Not a huge, but the other seats are better.
