ANA unveils meter-wide business-class seats to squeeze out rivals

Self-contained spaces to feature industry-first 4K screens

ANA's private business class seating grants passengers an enclosed space during international flights.

TOKYO -- Premium travelers on Japan's All Nippon Airways will soon have the option of reclining in their own personal, closed-off space during international flights.

At a push of a button, customers can activate barriers partitioning themselves from the aisles and neighboring passengers. The seating is also equipped with 24-inch monitors capable of playing 4K high-definition videos, a first for any airline, compared to the 17-inch screens now used. The seats, about 1 meter in width, provide double the space of regular business-class seating.
