While other airlines are cutting back on frills in an effort to cut costs, All Nippon Airways (ANA) is taking the full service mantra to the next level.
Why have one inflight cabin crew attending to your needs when you can have two. Twice the fun.
Starting 18 May ANA is introducing “new inflight service assistants” on the Japan-Taiwan sector, says ANA, adding that the new assistants will “wear a different uniform to stand out from the cabin crew”.
These cabin assistants are based in Taiwan and speak Mandarin, English, Taiwanese dialects such as Hokkien and some speak Japanese as well.
ANA says it is considering introducing local inflight service assistants on other routes such as flights to Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.
That should make the flight a lot more interesting.
