    Finally ANA has ditched its old inspiration of Japan PY design thanks to Koito and went for a new design which looks awfully similar to CX's new PY seats ;)

    Enhancement on current routes with PY seats (HND-LAX, NRT-IAD, NRT-ORD, NRT-MUC)
    - sparkling wines and soup will be served with Y meals

    Introduction of new PY seats sequentially on NRT-JFK, LHR, FRA, SAN, LAX, CDG from Sep 1 and will be completed by the end of the calendar year.
    - 2-4-2 layout
    - 19.3 inches wide
    - Leg rests and foot rests provided at your feet* and central arm rests equipped with cocktail trays to hold your drinks. Seats also have large head rests to provide better support for your head, and a large net pocket* allows you to store various items such as drink bottles.
    *Installed into the seat from the second row.
    - 10.6 inch monitor (12.1 inch for first row), a personal TV monitor touch panel, PC power outlet, USB port, i-Pod connection, and a personal light

    *Installed into the seat from the second row.

    Looks pretty awesome. I hope they get the pricing right though.

    I Love that looking down when reclined position feel. At least they didn`t dodgy it up with a small fella like they do whenever Qantas takes photos like this.

    Yes I think skyluxe or skyrecliner should be used as PY too

    But you will notice that they don't recline the seat in front of the passenger pictured but beside him!

    Don`t think that would effect the photo too much. It already looks stupid enough lol.

    CX is plain stupid to ask a tall westerner to be the model. The headrest isn't even in the right position in these PR photos!
