SEATAC, Wash.  -- All Nippon Airways is inaugurating a daily nonstop flight from Seattle to Tokyo with a ribbon cutting and ceremonial sake barrel opening in Seattle.

The festivities take place Wednesday at Sea-Tac Airport.

All Nippon Airways is launching the service with the Boeing 777, but it plans to switch to the new 787 in October.

Delta Air Lines and United Airlines also fly between Seattle and Tokyo's Narita airport.
