All Nippon Airways said Wednesday in Tokyo that it will begin nonstop service to the West Coast next year, from Narita airport to Seattle. ANA also will serve San Jose, Calif.
The airline says the destinations maximize the ability of the fuel-efficient, mid-size widebody to fly long-range routes.
It will be the first U.S. service for the new plane that Boeing delivered to the launch customer in September, nearly three years late.
ANA says it's enhancing the competitiveness of joint ventures with United and Continental Airlines, two Star Alliance partners.
