I spent only the night here after seoul and left in the morning at the train station asakusabashi at 9:18am for the 11:55am flight. Plenty of time you'd think.
Last year i did the same train ride getting off at funabashi and walking outside the station to the other station for 1200 yen. this ticket was 1320 or so. i got there and the ticket guy said that you can't use the ticket to go out and get the other so you need to go onto platform 4 to change through chiba station. soon as i got there, the train for the airport wasn't for an hour! great! so no way of getting to the airport on time now. Taxi would do it for 15,000 yen hah!
I asked a nice japanese person on the train for help and he checked flights for me, prices were like £350, £1200. I got to the airport at 11:45, i don't think i'll make 11:55. So i just go to mcdonalds find a flight on tigerair for £100 leaving at 5pm and have a play on the highly expensive flight simulator at 200yen
I had a rest on the observation deck, i needed actual fresh air after having a little infection i guess.
Tigerair checkin staff had the scoot lanyard and tigerair lanyard, they were friendly staff who spoke very good english.
It took 45 mins in the queue and i was sequence 50
The staff let me check in luggage for free. i am sure it said online that i am supposed to pay.
I put my tripod on the chair to film the american 787, a us guy started getting suspicious about my obvious filming of the aircraft and kept looking behind him at my camera. I then went for a shave and he came in there too. Now off to my gate to relax.
The Cabin crew were very kind and professional and enjoyed their work.
I went fast to the immigration, i did online arrival card. the immigration officers were mostly cute and pleasant girls smiling too but genuine smiles.
