All Nippon Airways (ANA), has formally signed a contract for its previously announced purchase, of ten stretch Boeing 777-300s, following final approval from the carrier's board. ANA 777-300s are planned to carry 480 passengers in a two-class configuration. The aircraft will be a replacement for the airline's Boeing 747SR on high-density domestic routes from 1998. ANA, in the meantime, is to take delivery of the first of its 18 777-200s in early October.
