ANA’s 787 features a multi-functioned bidet

All Nippon Airways and the Boeing Co. will give journalists a sneak peak on Saturday at the first 787 that will enter service as early as October.

On Thursday, ANA noted on Facebook one of the special features of its 787: a multi-functioned bidet.

For those of you who want to know what a multi-functioned bidet does, see the photo from ANA’s Facebook page.

The carrier says its 787 will be the first aircraft to be equipped with multi-functioned bidets in economy class.

ANA mentioned its plan to equip its Dreamliners with bidets in this 2007 Seattle PI story.

Boeing and ANA will unveil the airline’s first 787 in Everett this weekend. But the jet’s first delivery won’t take place until September, after the Federal Aviation Administration certifies the Dreamliner.
