Welcome to the second part of the report. This part will cover the flight from Tokyo Haneda to Hong Kong.
1. NH218 MUC to HND Here! 2. NH859 HND to HKG You Are Here! 3. NH810 HKG to NRT Here 4. NH217 HND to MUC Here!
After an overnight layover in Tokyo, I returned to Haneda airport the next morning. There is a bus connecting Osaki station and Haneda airport which is very convenient (Tokyu Limousine). Since my flight to Hong Kong will be departing at 8:50am, I need to leave hotel very early to catch the first bus. The bus station is just a few minutes from my hotel. I was so surprised that I was the only passenger on the bus. The bus left at 6:00am and the trip to the international terminal will take 42 minutes.
Bus to Haneda airport. The bus went to the domestic terminal 2 and 1 first before reaching the international terminal.
Bus arrived at the airport at 6:32am which was earlier than expected.
I immediately checkin my luggage at the ANA counters which are located at the 3/F departure lobby.
Already lots of people in the terminal.
Then I headed to the observation deck on 5/F

On the left side of the deck. 1. Japan Airlines B777-200ER JA701J to Shanghai Hongqiao as JL81 (with "JAL SKY SUITE 777" sticker) 2. Japan Airlines B787-8 JA821J to Guangzhou as JL87 3. China Airlines A330-300 B-18352 to Taipei Songshan as CI223
ANA B787-9 JA883A to Hanoi as NH857
This will be my ride today, JA886A. The configuration of this plane is different from the one that I flew yesterday. JA886A is a middle range international version (中距離国際線仕様), with Trent1000D2 installed and 246 seats. This plane was delivered to ANA in October 2016.
Before 22nd August 2016, HND/HKG flight was operated by B777-200ER. Since then the flight was changed to B787-9. Comparing with B777, the B787-9 has 78 seats more in economy class while business and premium class are largely reduced.
Then I visited the Edo-Koji street in the 4/F. The restaurants and shops are designed in a way to recreate the ambiance of days in 17th to 19th century.
Still too early in the morning, most of the shops were closed
As the departure time approached, I went through the security check and immigration and arrived at gate 109 which is just 2 minutes from the immigration.
At 8:23am, the boarding commenced and I boarded the plane after the priority boarding of the business class. My seat 27K, which looked exactly the same as my previous flight from Munich.
But on a closer look, I found that the latch of the table is totally different.

During the flight, I watched four episodes of the Japanese drama series.
According to the flight map, we were now flying over the northern part of Taiwan.
At 11:51am, I went to visit the toilet. While I was waiting behind my seat, an FA directed me to the toilet next to L3 door.
Same toilet layout
Somewhere over Penghu.
At 12:25pm, FA distributed the ANA candies and there were some postcards on the basket as well, so I took one with the star war jet.
Very soon I fell asleep. By the time the FA woke me up again, we were closed to landing.
Final approach. The bridge that joining Hong Kong to Macau and Zhuhai.
We landed on RWY07L at 12:12pm local time.
Reaching the final parking position at gate 28.
