STAR WARS fans have rejoiced over the R2-D2™ ANA JET last year but now Japan's largest airline has announced the inaugural flight of the final of three aircraft that is decorated in special STAR WARS livery - the BB-8™ ANA JET (Boeing 777-300). Featuring the new and adorable character from the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, BB-8™ ANA JET will roll out on 27 March 2016 (domestically) and commence on her first international route on 29 March 2016.
The BB-8™ ANA JET will depart from Haneda Airport at 12:05AM on 29 March 2016 to Los Angeles (ANA106) and it will link Haneda and Narita to the US – Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Houston.
Passengers on the BB-8™ ANA JET will experience the world of Star Wars with specially-designed BB-8 paper cups and headrest covers and cabin attendants will wear BB-8 aprons. On the R2-D2™ ANA JET, which is already in service (Boeing 787-9 flying international routes), cabin attendants wear R2-D2 aprons.
