All Nippon Airways to upgrade business class cabins through 2011

All Nippon Airways (ANA), the second-largest air carrier in Japan, has announced that it will continue upgrading its business class cabins through 2011, reports SkyClub News.

The airline, which offers service to American destinations such as Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., is expected to make the upgrades on its Boeing 777-300ER jets.

Business class cabins on the upgraded jets will feature a staggered seating arrangement that gives every seat direct access to the aisle, making ANA the only carrier in Japan to offer that level of comfort.

The new seats also feature sliding tables 150 percent larger than tables in the outdated cabins and universal power ports that can be used to charge laptops and other portable electronic devices. Guests trying to sleep may activate designated "Do Not Disturb" lights.

Every seat lies flat for maximum comfort, and passengers can find extra storage space for their belongings beneath the ottoman. Seats also feature 17-inch touch screen monitors with an extensive in-flight entertainment selection and connector ports for iPods and USB devices.
