All Nippon Airways Sizes: Luggage, Seats…

ANA along with Japan airlines are the big players in Japanese flights and the “home” international airport (Haneda Airport) is equipped with baggage drop machines. These machines are best at determining the dimensions of baggage. However, depending on the region of departure (mostly on African and American routes), it will be better to leave home with preparation for the right sizes (skip straight to the All Nippon Airways Size charts).

There are several baggage rules. The rules range from linear dimensions to location concerning exit row seats. The linear dimensions of a box or bag is what you get when you add the length, width, and height of the luggage together. This means that “Linear dimensions = Length + Height + Width”.

Nippon Airways’ fleet is quite diverse and the maximum length of each piece of baggage is affected by the aircraft type. The linear dimensions remain roughly the same, but you have to keep an eye on the length and you may compensate with height or width.

All Nippon Airways Seat Sizes For Wide Body Jets

Related: Copa Airlines Sizes: Luggage, Seats…

Seat sizes are measured in pitch and width. The width is quite easy to remember. It is the measure from one armrest to the other. Pitch on the other hand is more tricky. It is the measure from the back of the seat to the back of the seat in front of it. However, to cater for additional seat space meant for the legs, seat pitch is always measured at the lower parts of the seats. For an adult, passenger seat sizes affect traveler comfort, flight entertainment, and connectivity.

There is more than one layout for each aircraft type. Domestic flights usually have the smallest seat, simply because domestic routes are shorter. The domestic sector might also not worry much about flight entertainment and only include perhaps an inflight magazine. 

Truly large seats start to show up among premium economy seats on international routes. All the aircraft and their possible layouts are identified below. The word “Layout” is designated with the letter “L”. Layout simply means the arrangement of the interior of the plane. Any aircraft unidentified is probably not a staple for a passenger flight.


This always has the smallest seats and the smallest cabin spaces. The little spaces are so as to help manage prices. On their widebody jets, each seat has a video infotainment system and most of the seats are power seats.

Premium Economy

The primary difference between this class and the “Economy” class is the extra space meant for each customer. This means that the passenger has more space to sit, stretch, and move around. Apart from larger seat pitch and width, there is usually not much of a difference.

Business Class 

This is where the big seats start to show up. The seats are not only large but also has space around them to easily allow body shifts. It is also noteworthy that all seats in business class are power seats except for just one aircraft. The Boeing 763 in its domestic layout is the only exception for business class without power seats.
