Passengers on ANA will be able to stretch out and relax in the
New Style Club ANA business class seat-bed featuring 65 inches of
legroom and full recline, starting May 4, on daily non-stop Boeing

ANA created New Style Club ANA after conducting
surveys of 5,000 of its top-tier frequent flyers. The survey
results revealed that customers most want flexible service in a
relaxing and stress-free environment, which led to the development
of seats and a service concept reflecting those desires.
New Style Club ANA service includes:
- "Easy Sleeper Seat" with pitch of 65 inches and 170-degree
- Nine-inch monitor and digital AVOD (audio-video on demand) with
- Noise-reducing headphones
- New menu with on-demand meal service

- PC compatible power point in each seat
- Completely redesigned Bar Corner
- Available on 75 seats on the main and upper decks of Boeing

York flights, which features a bar counter with three eats,
audio-video on demand (AVOD) at every seat, and a business corner
on the upper deck with two desks, fax and telephones.
"That is a high level of service, but we think New Style Club
ANA is even better. Passengers will be able to eat when they want,
sleep when they want in a comfortable, flat seat, and enjoy music
and videos they can start, pause and start again whenever they
