On the first leg of my latest Aeroplan mini round the world trip, I had the absolute pleasure of flying with ANA. Even better, I got to write this ANA 787-9 business class review, one that now ranks as one of my favourites. Here’s why:
Seats on this ANA 787-9 business class review we’re a big highlight. Never have I experienced this much storage space on a business class flight. Leave it to the Japanese to ensure there is a compartment for everything.
Also, the added mattress pad and the cosiest comforter I’ve ever had on a plane made getting some rest easy, even for this traveller who struggles to sleep on planes.
Service & Amenities
Service on this in ANA 787-9 business class review is another highlight. In Vancouver, it starts with a lined up bow from all staff before opening the check-in counter. This set a nice friendly tone for the entire trip.
Onboard, my sake and wine were bottomless as waitstaff never let it come close to being empty. There was always someone nearby to top it up, something I have not experienced on other airlines. Then there are the recommendations on sake and meal pairings.
Amenities kit include the standards (eye mask, toothbrush, toiletries ect…) but the branded cardigan is a nice touch and made for comfy cabin loungewear.
Food & Drink
Sushi at 35,000 feet. Do I need to say more?
ANA delivers by far the most impressive meal service I have enjoyed on my business class experiences. Guests have a choice between Japanese and international cuisine. After perusing the sake list and getting a recommendation from the super friendly flight attendant, it was hard to turn down the Japanese menu.
The dishes kept coming with the highlight (for me) being a miso-glazed sablefish. Erin, not one to turn down cheese, took the cheese plate as her favourite.
Entertainment on this ANA 787-9 business class review is good, not great. It is on par with other business class flights I have taken with ample movie options however no TV shows which I find odd. They do offer live feeds of news and sports channels though and there is plenty to keep you entertained. The bottomless sake certainly helps.
ANA 787-9 Business Class Review Conclusion
From sushi and sake at 35,000 feet to the most private and spacious pod-style seats I have ever flown, ANA business class joins a select few on top of my business class rankings. I wouldn’t hesitate to fly ANA again and can recommend as your transpacific carrier.READ MORE: Singapore Air A350-900 Business Class Review
