First Class Flight Photo Review – ANA 777-300ER Tokyo, Japan (HND) to Chicago, IL (ORD)

An international first-class flight on a Skytrax five-star airline like ANA is a special experience.  I covered the ANA flight from Chicago in depth here.  That flight was also on a 777-300ER.  This post covers the return flight to Chicago primarily in visual format.

ANA’s first class seat is roomy with several storage compartments.  Most controls and connections are hidden behind panels.  20190923_15112020190923_150900

I thoroughly enjoyed the food, drink and exceptional service of the first meal even though I was unsure of the names of and ingredients in many of the dishes.

Chill…Relax…Sleep

Following the meal it was time to relax.   I changed in the lavatory and hung my clothes in the closet built into the wall of the seat.

Overall Impression

The enthusiasm and hospitality of the flight attendants, the quality of food, the ability to mix and match dishes and control the time and pace of dinning, the wine list (including all the Krug champagne one cares to drink) were at least equal to the experience on  first-class flights I’ve taken on other Skytrax Five Star Airlines (Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines, Cathay Pacific, and Asiana Airlines). ANA definitely belongs in the same class.  While the first-class seat on ANA’s 777-300ER does not have a door, seat comfort in upright and lie flat positions is outstanding.  Free internet is another plus. For 120,000 ANA miles round trip, the flights in first class on ANA between Chicago and Tokyo were definitely the best travel deal I’ve had the privilege to enjoy.
