Selected business-class seats now share an armrest, which looks set to better facilitate conversations between passengers.
Last November, All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced that it will be debuting its Hawaii-bound A380 on May 24. Now, they’ve revealed the cabin interiors for the aircraft, which will operate exclusively on the Japan-Hawaii route.
Boasting 520 seats each, ANA’s A380 fleet features a four-class configuration. This includes 383 economy class seats on the main deck, alongside 137 seats with eight in first class, 56 in business, and 73 in premium economy on the upper deck.
Shown to media during an event at Tokyo Narita International Airport, the aircraft’s business seats are unique in that selected seats in the middle row share an armrest. This design feature aims at better facilitating conversation between passengers, compared to the staggered seating arrangement on its other long-haul fleet.
Other noteworthy features include a “multi-purpose room”, as well as the ability to create a lie-flat bed by combining seats in economy class.
