    Economy config is 2-4-2 (or should I say 2-2-2-2 because there's an extra armrest in the middle of the middle seats) :)

    This looks so good. I am anxious to experience it. C seems excellent but i wonder how good Y will be? Trying is the solution to the question, isn't it?

    Beautiful indeed. Thanks for the posts.

    "The numbers 787 are painted big in bold and blue at the front of the aircraft to signify that ANA will be the first airline in the world to fly the Dreamliner. The blue lines at the rear of the fuselage are designed to highlight how the three core elements of the airline’s service brand - innovation, uniqueness and the inspiration of modern Japan - operate across the ANA network. "

    And there I thought the three blue lines are designed to highlight the three years of delay for the 787 ... :D

    It's a Japanese carrier and provides good service unlike some so-called five star carrier in green :rolleyes: :p

    According to NH America's Sr VP, 787 will most likely replaced the 777 used on LAX route. I guess he probably meant the 777-200ER flight as it has no F?

    That single centre seat in J is quite something for us solo curmudgeons. Is it time to play route/flight loto to get an award seat in that cabin for next spring?

    It reminds me of the new Swiss even numbered "A" seats in business- the Throne.
