ANA reveals interior of high-density domestic Boeing 787-10s


All Nippon Airways has revealed the cabin interiors of its new high-density, 429-seat Boeing 787-10 twinjets, which are being introduced on domestic routes as the carrier replaces aged Boeing 777s.

The seats will be familiar to ANA passengers; they are from Safran and Toyota Boshoku and mirror those installed on the Japanese carrier’s other domestic widebodies. In-seat IFE is installed from nose to tail.

Up front in ‘Premium Class’, All Nippon Airways is offering 28 business class seats, each pitched at 50” in a 2-2-2 configuration.

ANA Boeing 787-10 business class seats are being showcased with two cabin crew members. Manufactured by Safran Seats US, the electrically reclining seats feature 15.6” IFE screens, leg rests and foot rests, plus universal and USB power ports.

Though ANA is utilizing virtually all available space aboard the 787-10 (which has a max-capacity of 440 seats when configured in a single-class layout), this is not the highest seat count operating on its domestic routes; that distinction goes to the two-class 777-300 twinjets with 514 seats and a seat pitch of roughly 31”.


But the 787 series “is more economical than the Boeing 777 aircraft currently operating on domestic routes” and improves fuel efficiency by 25%, according to ANA, and thus the jets are being used to gradually replace the latter.

At the end of March, ANA’s initial batch of high-density 787-10s started plying domestic routes linking Tokyo Haneda with Chitose, Itami, Kansai International Airport, Fukuoka and Naha.

By Fiscal 2026, the Star Alliance member plans to introduce 11 787-10s — the longest variant in the Dreamliner series — with the aim of “unifying the main domestic route fleet with Boeing 787 variants”.
