It's the beginning of something very exciting, and we're on board to capture all the action!
Seattle Gay News joins a small press corps today for an experience aboard All Nippon Airways' inaugural Seattle-to-Tokyo 787 flight. The Japanese-based airline launched non-stop service between the two cities in July, but has been utilizing a 777 aircraft for the 10.5 hour flight (outbound, from Seattle). At 1:15pm this afternoon, ANA will send its first passengers to Tokyo on a 787 "Dreamliner", which is mostly made of carbon fiber and other composite materials. ANA is the first airline to receive and put the "Dreamliner" into active service.
Look for a review of the flight experience in an upcoming issue of Seattle Gay News, which this year has published feature destinations on Tokyo and Osaka. For more on ANA, go to http://www.ana.co.jp/asw/wws/us/e/
