If you find yourself in Tokyo, hungry, and nostalgic for an airline experience, All Nippon Airways (ANA) has you covered with a new 777 restaurant.
Dinner Onboard A Parked All Nippon Airways 777
Mimicking Singapore Airlines, ANA will offer a flight-like experience on a parked Boeing 777-300ER at Tokyo Haneda Airport. The program is simple: pick a date, pick a time, pick a class of service, and prepare for your flight. Only business or first class seating is offered (with plenty of distancing onboard) and you’ll need to choose whether you want a Japanese or Western meal when booking.
How much does this cost?
- Business Class – 29,800JPY, or 269USD
- First Class – 59,800JPY, or 540USD
You can book here.
As One Mile At A Time notes, it appears that ANA is using its old configuration onboard the 777, so do not expect the latest product which is dubbed “The Room” in business class or “The Suite” in first class.
Nevertheless, it is still a remarkably comfortable product (you can read my full review of first class here).

Guests will also have lounge access prior to their “flight.”
Is this worthwhile?
That’s a question only you can answer. If it helps at all, ANA offers fancy Champagne and caviar in first class. Here are some (Western) meal pictures from my first class flight on the same aircraft:
I’m frankly surprised this has not sold out already, though perhaps people see a resumption of travel on the horizon and are saving their money.
$54o (even $269) is very steep…I’d rather dine with the Governor at French Laundry…but I can certainly see the attraction in this.
