All Nippon Airways announced this week plans to introduce new first- and business-class suites on its New York-Tokyo route.

The Tokyo-based airline’s new business-class seat is called the Room and features alternating front- and rear-facing seats in suites with doors that close.  The seat width – 35” – is almost double that of the earlier business-class product.

The new first-class offering, known as the Suite, builds on the airline’s earlier product with the addition of sliding doors, an improved middle divider for those traveling together in middle seats, and a 43” 4K display.

The seats were designed by architect Kengo Kuma and British design firm Acumen. The seats made their debut on flights from Haneda Airport to London Heathrow in August.  The first flight from Tokyo with the new configuration will be Flight 110 and the first from New York City will be Flight 9. Both flights will depart on November 8.
