All Nippon Airways (ANA) recently announced an updated livery for the Boeing 787s and finally they are being seen out in the wild. ANA’s third 787 (registered JA805A) was officially delivered on December 30th, but it was not flown to Japan until January 4, 2012.

On January 14th, JA805A was used on the 787’s first regularly scheduled international flight from Haneda (HND) to Beijing (PEK). JA805A is ANA’s first 787 to have their international interior configuration with new staggered business class seating. ANA’s fourth 787 Dreamliner (JA807A) was delivered and flown to Tokyo on January 13th and most likely will be used on the Handeda (HND) to Frankfurt (FRA) route that ANA expects to start on January 21, 2012.

Here are some photos showing JA805A and JA806A’s new livery and interior:

That’s a high proportion of biz class seats compared to economy.

Bumper Stickers: “My new cube is a B787”. “I work over the North Pole.”
“I’ll have it done yesterday”(Boeing dateline traveler). “Power Point presentation? No problem I’m on a 787”.

That is what i see here in these pictures.

Business Class looks excellent. In a way it’s very similar to Emirates A380 business class, the same offset system

I’m not liking the blue counter tops…or whatever it’s called. It looks too much like a hospital…very clinical sterile looking.
