787 to CGK, SIN, KUL: flat seat or cradle?

Please excuse my ignorance as an ANA newbie. Having gone through the (somewhat outdated) FAQ here and through the ANA website I am not sure what business seat to expect on the 787 to KUL, SIN or CKG. Will it be cradle or staggered? Unlike JAL, ANA does not seem to list on their website which aircraft is going where. Any help appreciated!

ANA does not fly to Chongqing (CKG). That said, I think you meant CGK (Jakarta)?

AFAIK, ANA flies the recliners to Jakarta, and seem to consistently use flatbeds to Singapore. Kuala Lumpur's overnight flight uses flatbeds, whilst the non red-eye flight uses recliners.

To check these, I think Expertflyer may be of help to you.

I'll be flying CGK-HND on NH856 (789) and as solo traveler I have selected 3A. Is it ok for the window (though it's a nigh flight) or is 5A better?
Thank you

I would say there is no real difference between the two.

You are everywhere!
Or do you advice any other seat?
Thank you again

On a solo flight I would always go for the seats closer to the window. Added privacy. On a night flight even more important, less risk of being woken by someone passing in the aisle. The further in front of the engines I can get the better, less noise. So of course I'd prefer 3A, but not much difference to 5A.

Just to make sure I got it: 787s with PE all have staggered business seats, and those without all have cradle business seats. Is this correct?

Oh, and another one: how frequent are aircraft swaps? Thank you.
