Short and Pleasant Domestic Flight

Review of frenchalain about the flight Japan Airlines 116 between Itami and Tokyo Haneda on 15/05/2016 in Business

Note: This review is about an experience that happened more than 3 years ago.

Advice: buy the business class ticket (for € 80) directly from their site and not on a travel website otherwise it's much more expensive: add € 50.

These B777s are laid out with a lot of business class seats, for business trips but also for a lot of elderly passengers. The seats were comfortable but obviously not made for long-haul flights: no in-flight entertainment (video screen) and no couchette, which explains the affordable price. Total price was less expensive than Shinkansen (TGV) without a subscription.

Itami is easily accessible by a bus from the Osaka train station, around 40-minute trip.
On the other hand, online registration can help: 100% in Japanese, which I did at the hotel. Boarding was really fast: less than 15 minutes to fill a B777-200, something that could only happen in Japan!

The flight was less than an hour, beverage was served.
Very professional and friendly flight crew.

Haneda, a first for me, much closer than Tokyo.

Rapid baggage delivery.
