Jaw. Dropped.

ANA just micdropped the aviation world. Not only did they release a completely unexpected redesign of their 777-300ER first and business class cabins, but they start flying in less than a month. Yes. Less than a month. They’ve been a huge, well kept secret, as ANA revealed they’ve been in development for nearly 5 years. We didn’t even know we were waiting, but the wait is nearly over.

What you see below will be put into operation starting August 2nd from Haneda to London ( NH211/N212 ) – even numbered dates in August, odd numbered dates in September. While “The Suite” looks amazing, I’m most impressed with their new business class, “The Room.” The Room has doors, faces front and back, has massive width ( think SQ looking size ), and 4k tv. It alongside BA’s new Club Suite are the most exciting new business class products in the marketplace. I’m geeking out hard.

Here’s what ANA has to say about the products:

  • •The new cabin products “THE Suite” and “THE Room” inspired by Japanese heritage and Western design principles will be featured in First Class and Business Class for the first time on the Tokyo – London route.
  • •The new products were born out of five years of design development and collaboration between famed Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and leading British designers Acumen.
  • •New cabin designs include the world’s largest 4K resolution monitor in First Class and an innovative new Business Class seat with private door and multifunctional lounging and dining capabilities.

Hopefully these will be put into transpacific service sooner than later. Would absolutely love to redeem some Virgin Atlantic points for either of these impressive new cabins. WOW. WOW.WOW

We keep an up to date spreadsheet that lists the best ever offers: You can find that spreadsheet here.

Historically 80k is a very, very good offer and hit in both 2022 and 2023. In 2021, we saw the offer hit an all time high of 100k. Who knows if that will ever come back.

Main Cast: 

Cards that earn flexible points and should be used on the bulk of your purchases.

Supporting Cast:

Cards that earn fixed points in the currency of the airline/hotel and can not be transferred at attractive rates. These cards yield benefits that make it worth keeping, but not necessarily worth putting a lot of your everyday spend on. 

The Chase Sapphire Preferred® is exceptional starter card and offers transferrable Ultimate Rewards, and pairs well with other Chase cards.

If you carry this card alongside Chase’s cashback cards like the Chase Freedom Flex®  and Chase Freedom Unlimited® or the business versions: Ink Business Cash® , Ink Business Unlimited® you can combine the points into Preferred account and transfer into hotel and airline partners

Annual fee is quite low at $95 a year + you get a 10% anniversary bonus on points + $50 hotel credit in Chase travel.
