From today NH has launched an all-new website detailing their new 'Inspiration of Japan' brand and cabin service, to be introduced on the 77W on NRT-JFK flights in February.
Absolutely world class stuff from the looks of it - with typically conservative but very refined Japanese modern design touches throughout. The 1 x 2 x 1 staggered business configuration is certainly interesting.
Premium meals from other classes available for purchase in Y on both domestic and international services, lounge access, and airport valet service - all of which can be arranged and paid for when ticketing. Fantastic.

Quoting Kaitak (Reply 1): Looks like a great new product line; no doubt benefiting from JL's problems (presumably it can't invest the same, if anything in a new product line).
JAL already has implemented new a F product on their 77Ws and I believe they are already in service between NRT & the U.S. I cannot remember if they integrated a new J or Y product, but I remember thinking I really liked the F product.
I actually think it is also ORD & LAX as well and maybe even SFO.
(Update: I checked the JAL website, and as of October 25 they added the new service on LAX & ORD routes to go along with the existing service already on the JFK & SFO routes. It also appears that business and economy cabins have new products as well as First.)

Absolutely fabuoius looking kind of what Emiraes would be if it were from Japan. The Business Class is huge, teh 777-300ER is going from 267 to 212 seats. Making anything from teh Americas look old and dated.

It's interesting that NH is reducing capacity even more, while still running a heavy premium cabin count.
Makes me question even more the claims they were looking at something larger than a 77W, to be honest. NH seems to know just how big the profitable wedge of their market is across all classes and that is who they are targeting on carrying.

Quoting BMI727 (Reply 14): Looks a lot like what Etihad does, and it does look comfortable.
Actually, it looks almost identical to the Thompson Vantage seats being installed by DL. Same concept as Vantage, identical layout, just some harder edges on the shell and hopefully a better designed tray table...

Quoting Bioyuki (Reply 21): ANA's 77Ws currently seat 247 (8F/77C/24Y+/138Y).
212 for the new one: (8F/ 68J/24Y+/ 112Y ).
That's 26 less Y seats and 9 less J seats. This is less seats then a Singapore or Cathay 77W. CX's 77W seats 301, but no Y plus and only 57 J seats. SIA's 77W seats 270, 42 J and 28 Y seats with 8 F suites( not A380 type).
