I used to be in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, and I used to be on my method to Singapore.
At this level, we had no plans to fly Japan Airways.
My first flight, only a quick one hour flight from Phoenix to Los Angeles, was delayed… which prompted me to overlook my connecting flight from LA to Hong Kong and the following flight from Hong Kong to Singapore.
As irritating as flights can typically be, I attempt to do my finest to think about it at all times in a constructive approach: In any case, being safely on the bottom, no mater the circumstances, isn’t so dangerous.
I’ve already written about, and made a video in regards to the meals on Korean Air, which I feel may be very good for being airline meals, however after I wrote that, some folks commented telling me Japan Airways additionally had excellent meals.
Our flight left from Phoenix about 2 hours late, however we finally made it to LA, though we weren’t certain the right way to had been going to proceed.
After ready in customer support strains and speaking with the Oneworld Alliance, they had been lastly in a position to reschedule our journey, and we caught a flight with American Airways from LA to Tokyo, and from Tokyo to Singapore they scheduled my spouse to attach in Tokyo and fly with Japan Airways to Singapore.
The American Airways flight received us the place we would have liked to go, though I feel most airways from the US might do with some severe enhancements.
However we made it safely to Tokyo’s Narita Airport.
As quickly as we received off the aircraft in Tokyo, we had been greeted by a Japan Airways worker who had my title written on it.
“Comply with me,” she kindly mentioned.
She took us to a Japan Airways counter the place we had been issued our ticket from Tokyo to Singapore, and upon giving us our ticket they mentioned:
“You may as well use the Japan Airways Sakura first-class lounge.”
I took a take a look at the time, and our departure time, simply 1.5 hours away, and my spouse and I rushed as quick as we might to the Japan Airways lounge to try to eat and drink, and benefit from the first-class lounge, for as a lot time as we might.
After we arrived, the lounge was fairly busy, and some of the meals had been completed, however they did have some scrumptious Japanese curry.
I made certain to have a few plates. The curry was salty and wealthy, crammed with chunks of tender beef. Together with a scoop of recent sizzling steamed Japanese rice, it was pure consolation.
I drank a pair cups of espresso and a had a cool Asahi on faucet, after which sadly we needed to run to catch our flight… or danger lacking one other flight… this time our fault.
Though I want we might have had one other couple of hours to loosen up within the Japan Airways first-class lounge, my spouse and I each loved it whereas it lasted.
On the airplane, the flight attendants had been extraordinarily variety and useful, maybe among the kindest staff on any flight I’ve been on.
Our flight from Tokyo to Singapore was a couple of seven hour flight, and about an hour after take-off we had been served dinner.
The flight attendants got here round with a menu, that included two totally different objects. I selected the grilled pork with miso sauce on steamed rice.
I didn’t take any photos of the particular meals (as we filmed a video as an alternative), however simply as Japanese meals at all times is, all the things on the tray was neat and tidy and there have been numerous totally different dishes included.
On the highest was a bamboo shoot and shrimp salad, a fried piece of fish, and a fruit cup. Then on the underside was a lettuce salad and the new dish.
The grilled pork was fairly good, lined in a thick creamy miso sauce, and paired with shitake mushrooms.
In fact the meal wouldn’t evaluate to a Japanese meal on floor, however for being 12,000 meters within the sky, it was excellent, the most effective meals I’ve had on an airplane.
My spouse and I had been scheduled to fly from Phoenix within the USA, to LA, to Hong Kong, to Singapore, however our first flight to LA was delayed, inflicting us to overlook our onwards flights.
After a number of flight re-arrangement, we had been re-routed by way of Tokyo and had been in a position to catch a flight with Japan Airways (nor our scheduled airline) from Tokyo to Singapore, which received us into Singapore simply an hour later than our earlier schedule.
Though we didn’t have any further time to enter Tokyo to eat this time, we did get to benefit from the Japan Airways first-class lounge whereas we had been in Tokyo’s Narita Airport.
I used to be very impressed with our Japan Airways flight – the service was extraordinarily good, and the meals was spectacular too. In the event you ever get an opportunity to fly with Japan Airways, go for it!
