This is a quick report of holiday in Las Vegas.Our vacation trip started from my home airport. I got a SKYMARK flight bound for Haneda,to transit for United Flight.

SKYMARK is a domestic cheap airline,but not be a LCC.
They are operating only domestic route by B737 fleets .
Interestingly,They ordered A380 to expand US route.Ironically,their attempt finally failed and A380 cancel fee leaded them to a bankruptcy in 2016.

Skymark has no web-check in ,So I headed to auto check-in area.During a check-in process,I found some exit low were available yet.But my next seat was supposed to be empty,I decided to stay pre-assigned seat.

Winter was most beautiful season here.I spend rest of time in spotting from the food court.



Boarding started at 10:30,from windows seats passengers,followed by all passengers.My seat was 13H,beside Right Engine.

Skymark wasn't equipped with IFE and Wi-Fi on board.
Seats are made by RECARO,German seat manufacturer.
It was slim type seat,was comfortable for me.Seat pitch was not bad,however not enough.



After take-off,I was excited to watch snowy scenery.

skymark didn't provide complementary drink.Instead,They selling drinks all ¥100(US$0.9),relativly cheap.
And KitKat was provided. Because SKYMARK was tieing up with Nescafe then.

We approached to Rwy34R from South,so I couldn't see the town of TOKYO.

We landed Rwy34R on time.It was little hard landing due to weather.
After a short taxiing,We arrived at Terminal 1,which is used by JAL Mainly.

Conclusion

Skymark is not a LCC,but their fare is cheaper than competitors,like ANA and JAL.
They charged any drinks and snacks as a LLC.But seat assignment and 20KG checked baggage were Free.

Domestic fare out of Haneda was always expensive, because there are no LCC in this airport.So Skymark is good option if you want to depart from Haneda airport with cheap fare.
