Conclusion

It is a nice jounery travel with ET 787-8 to Tokyo.
Also, thanks to the kindly crew and a lot of surprise in ET672.
Such as tasty Business Class meal and lots of smile with the passengers from the crew.
36A is a nice seat to take photo with the wings and the sky.

However, one out of six washroom was out of service. Also, some armrest and cup holder are
Broken. Home ET can fix it out.

    Indeed that's a kind offer from the crew!
    the portion seems more generous that the Y serving. on the other hand C class starter and dessert fail to impress, the Y ones look tastier

    thanks for sharing

      The portion seems more generous that the Y serving => Absolutely, the C class meal is more generous in the portion.
      C class starter and dessert fail to impress => This may be lower than Asian standard, may be I can explain why the C class from HKG-NRT can sell as $5500 HKD (650-700 USD). That I can accept the meal quality of C class.
