|ANA B787? or Lufthansa A380?
|Sayonara B747, now new era has begun with
B787 which is 35 percent made in Japan, some
says made WITH Japan (^^). Commercial flights
are now available for Sapporo-Chitose (CTS),
Akita (AXT), Komatsu (KMQ), Toyama (TOY),
Haneda (HND), Nagoya (NGO), Itami (ITM),
Okayama (OKJ), Hiroshima (HIJ), Yamaguchi-Ube
(UBJ), Matsuyama (MYJ), Takamatsu (TAK),
Kumamoto (KMJ), Miyazaki (KMI), Fukuoka (FUK,
oh, sorry, didn't mean that!) and more. And
now starting from 2014, B787-9 is flying
all over Japan.
|ANA failed to introduce the dream liner for
Beijing Olympic held in 2008, but now including
PEK, commercial flight are available internationaly
on route for Shanghai (PVG), Taiwan (TSA
not TPE), Singapore (SIN), Jakarta (CGK),
Manila (MNL), Seattle (SEA), San Jose (SJC),
Dusseldorf (DUS), Frankfurt (FRA), Munchen
(MUC) and more. This site has all ANA's fleets registered. Can you
find B787-900 (the world's 2nd after Air
Are you waiting for the next generation (small
brother of B787) already? Mitsubishi is currently
building regional jet which will be a competition
to Bombardier and Embraer. Made-in-Japan
jet aircraft will be finally realized after
70 years of World War 2. MRJ is Japan Dream.
Back to the story of the dream liner. 787
has bigger window ever to see more blue sky
and white cloud, let's imagine to fly through
magic northern lights on this aircraft. Fuel
efficiency (20 percent less than 767) makes
possible to fly direct to medium city (not
hub airport of big city but rather middle-sized-city),
JAL introduced Tokyo - Boston in 2012. ANA
is battling with Lufthansa A380 for Frankfurt
route with installing the fuel efficient
craft on Haneda basis (not Narita). ANA also
started Seattle (WA) and San Jose (CA) on
the west coast of the USA. Air Canada (Haneda
- Toronto - Tel Aviv) also appreciate B787,
United links Tokyo and Denver (CO). For long
haul routes, ANA has better Business Class
configuration (full flat sleeper seat) than Lufthansa's Business Class (angle sliding seat which not many people like that's why Lufthansa
invested 3 -billion-euro for finally full flat sleeper seat , some Tokyo route has installed this new
Business Class already and will be fully
flat bedded starting from winter 2015). Which you'd fly to Japan? Or, do you still
prefer to be on B747 the Jumbo Jet, especially
the upper deck semi-compartment privacy?
|Are you a fan of airliners and A380 families? Narita Airport has seven routes
for the big whale (bird), Frankfurt (FRA)
by Lufthansa, Paris (CDG) by Air France , and Singapore (SIN and LAX) by Singapore Airlines. The least seats of ever (more individual
space with only 407 seats in total) by Korean Air, too, which is for Seoul (ICN). Now Thai Airways International for Bangkok. Their time schedule for departures
and arrivals are as shown below, all activities
are based on Japan Standard Time. Skymark is cancelling all A380s they firmly ordered.
All of 6?! Dream would not be made over Japan
sky with Skymark.
