ANA's New Aircraft On Hold

All Nippon Airways (ANA) reports that the scheduled introduction of its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft for its Narita, Japan-New York route will be delayed. The debut was scheduled to commence February 20 but a snag in the development of the new Premium Economy seats has pushed the date back.

Also on hold: The launch of new brand "Inspiration on Japan" and new services on routes to North America and Europe.

The new launch date for both the aircraft and brands is now Monday, April 19. ANA apologizes for any inconvenience. Visit
