After disembarkation, ground staff were at the end of the jetbridge calling out for transit passengers to Narita. Our passports were checked, names ticked off a list, given a transit card as well as a transit sticker. Noticed from the list that there were slightly more than 30 pax transiting to Narita.
Then it was a rather long walk to Transfer security where we were screened before allowing bck to the Departure level. The terminal was not too busy at this time of the night, with some shops and eateries also closed for the day.

Thai Airasia A320 and our Dreamliner beside.
Re-boarding at the gate 26 has already begun.
But lets grab a decent photo of the Dreamliner before boarding. Wonder why is OFE's nose-cone in white.
22 June 2017 Scoot TZ 292 Bangkok Don Muang (DMK) - Tokyo Narita (NRT) B787-8 9V-OFE "The Future is Yellow" ScootBiz Flight Time: 5H42M
Re-boarding the aircraft and welcomed back by the same set of crew.
Again, cups of drinking water were offered in ScootBiz during boarding.
ScootBiz was rather full on this sector. We pushed back slightly late due to the late arrival and taxied to Rwy21L for departure.
Most passengers were already settling for the night.
Crew came around and asked us if we would like the meal right away or 2hrs before arrival. We requested for the meals to be served right away as we intend to rest for the rest of the flight. Pre-ordered the Beef brisket with polenta on this sector. Meal came with the same salad as previous meal (catered from SIN) but dessert was replaced with a cake. Ordered a coconut water with the meal.
Salad and a piece of raspberry cake.
Beef was tender and flavourful, but I am not a fan of polenta. Portion was big too. Definitely satisfying, but not as good as the Chicken Rendang on the previous sector.
My friend has pre-ordered the third Premium meal choice out of SIN, which is the Singapore Chicken Rice. Tasted fairly authentic and delicious as well.
After meals were cleared, cabin lights in ScootBiz were dimmed all the way till we started our descend. Even though a Buy-on-board service was again conducted in Economy about 2hrs prior to landing with full cabin lights on, us in ScootBiz were not disturbed with lights remaining dimmed.
Another shot of the legroom.
Starting our descent. Cups of water were offered by the crew just prior to our descent. This was unexpected and was evident of the great service provided by this set of ScootBiz crew.
Spotted Mt Fuji in the distance.
Approaching Narita from the south to land on the shorter Rwy34R. Arrived slightly behind schedule.
Video of landing.
A rather long taxi to Narita's Terminal 2.
Rainbow lights were turned on again during disembarkation! But the effect is not as cool as in the evening.
Similar to DMK, the aerobridge was only attached to Door 2. My seat for the past 8hrs.
Passing the small Scoot-in-Silence economy cabin during disembarkation.
Last look at our aircraft.
Some plane-spoting while on the trek towards arrival immigration.
Immigration was quick and luggage delivery was efficient too.
As we had more than 3hrs of transit before the flight up to Hakodate, we grabbed some breakfast at one of the airport restaurants. I had a very delicious japanese style breakfast.
There is an open-air viewing gallery at the roof-top too! Great place for aviation enthusiasts to hang out.
View towards the apron of Terminal 3, aka LCC terminal, where my next flight would be departing from.
Bangkok - DMK
Tokyo - NRT
ScootBiz is definitely a very comfortable way to fly at very affordable prices. Luxury business class it may not be, but with the more spacious seat, accompanied with some frills, it really helped to make the mid-haul red-eye flight much more bearable.
