A beautiful, clear, sunny day awaited guests as they checked in at San Joseâ€™s Norman Y Mineta International Airport (SJC).Â Saturday was the day a lot of people have been waiting for:Â All Nippon Airways (ANA) is resuming their Tokyo flights into the Silicon Valley, providing a direct link from the bay area to northern Asia. I was lucky enough to be invited on this flight by ANA to help celebrate this re-introduction [ANA only flew the 787 for only a few days into SJC before the aircraft was grounded].
This flight into San Jose also sees the reintroduction of the 787 to international skies for ANA, who operate the worldâ€™s largest fleet of Dreamliners. Â As NH1076 touched down at San Jose a few minutes ahead of schedule, the gate area was quiet, the staff scurried around preparing for the flights arrival. Â This could’ve been any flight on any other day, but it wasn’t.
