Two years of patiently waiting & All Nippon Airways’ first A380 has finally arrived with livery that ‘totally rocks’ & new seating that’s ‘awesome dude’.

In case you didn’t pick up on surfer tone above, All Nippon Airways’ new aircraft looks a lot like everyone’s favourite sea turtle from Finding Nemo, Crush.

Although not specifically designed to look like the super chilled Disney character, the plane was painted in sea turtle livery to reflect Hawaii, the destination it will be used to service.


Entering service on 24 May 2019, the airline’s first of three super jumbo jets will be used mostly to fly between Tokyo’s Narita Airport and Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

Beyond the eye-catching exterior, the aircraft sets itself from the rest of the All Nippon Airways fleet with ‘couch seats’ – seats that double up as a bed.


Guests wanting to take advantage of the 60 available couch seats will need to book the three or four seats in an aisle and raise the leg rests in order to comfortably lay down.


The aircraft also boasts eight First Class private suites in the upper deck with personal wardrobes and 32-inch TV screens, 56 Business Class seats, 73 in Premium Economy and 383 in Economy Class.
