Hi guys, here come another report for a flight I took in the past summer.
This is a relatively rare report here I guess because this is about a pretty small scale low-cost carrier in SE Asia, named as Peach Airlines. It is a Japanese LCC and runs routines between Japan and SEA countries, for example Hong Kong.
This time I took the red eye flight from Hong Kong to Osaka Kansai overnight. As it is LCC, I need to pay extra for a lot of stuff, say seat selection, food, luggage etc. In order to pay what I need only, I only pay extra for the luggage and nth else.
And interesting I am going to introduce the small North Satellite Terminal of HKG today, which also is relatively rare here I think, because this satellite terminal now is only for narrow-body aircrafts, and a lot of LCCs use narrow-body aircrafts and hence, park at this terminal. And by terminal, it just refers to a little rectangular structure built across taxiways.
The typical gateway at HKG, which is actually the main part of the terminal building.
We were taking shuttle bus from the main terminal to the satellite terminal
Gate 502 today at the satellite terminal. The terminal is not good for plane-spotting as the hallway in front of the glasses are assigned as restricted area.
Just pictures of this terminal which a lot of people commented as stupid. Only 2 flights left at the terminal at the late night
My ticket. So I and my another friend did not pay to choose our seat, and we were assigned 2 windows seat, i.e. 21A and 22A. One very bad thing is that Peach's seat is actually ridiculous thin. So my friend was sitting behind me, and every time he picked up or put back something at rear of my seat, I feel like his hand playing around my butt (I know it sounds stupid, but u can imagine how awkward it was)
We were flying towards Japan welcome the sunrise, just around 2 hours after taking off. Japan is 1 hour faster than Hong Kong.
Typical A320 LCC layout.
Yay sunrise and getting closer to Japan. I barely slept, probably because I was too excited, and the seat was too uncomfortable.
Landed at KIX. Peach parks at Terminal 3, which is a terminal specific for LCCs.
There is no bridge. We walk downstairs (Rare!)
This is not exactly the plane I took, but the same model. They just parked a series of these A320s outside the terminal. This is in fact the base for Peach.
Everyone taking photos with the sun lol And u can spot that the LCC terminal is very primary, it is like a temporary warehouse. We literally just walk inside.
After immigration and luggage retrieval, get a free shuttle to go back to T1 to change for trains to get to Osaka downtown.
The free shuttle.
Hope you guys enjoy the report, esp to those who are not familiar to this Peach Airlines!
Hong Kong - HKG
Osaka - KIX
As this is a LCC flight, I could not expect much really, with that amount of price I paid. Anyway the core services is alright, and the flight attendants are actually very polite, and they were all Japanese. Their attitude is not worse than full-service ones. I mean seriously for some LCCs the service attitude can be pretty bad. Other than this, not much can really comment on...
