After 10 days visiting Yokohama, Yokosuka, Kamakura, Hakone and Tokyo, it's time to head home. We had breakfast at my favourite fast food place in Japan, Sukiya. Their beef bowls are simply the best out of the three major chains in Japan.
Garuda Indonesia GA875 Tokyo International Airport (HND) - Soekarno–Hatta International Airport (CGK) B777-300ER PK-GIE Economy Class Gate 142
Haneda is easily accessed by subway straight to the terminal. Garuda uses check-in row L in Haneda.
Collected my boarding pass after check-in.
I walked around to have a look at the terminal before heading airside.
After security screening and immigration, we are finally airside.
Today's flight departs from Gate 142, located towards to the end of the terminal. It's a slightly long walk from immigration.
Our bird for today, PK-GIE. A magnificent B77W.
Japanese efficiency when it comes to boarding. Boarding my rows is strictly enforced with separate queues for separate queues for the different rows.
Boarding and crossing via aerobridge! Newspapers are available at the door for passengers.
Entering through the second door, we head straight into the Economy cabin. Arranged in 3-3-3.
A POV shot from my seat. Seat pitch is okay, I've sat in worse.
Welcome screen of the IFE. I really like this where they show Indonesia's scenic locations.
The amenities are placed in the seat back pocket in advance. Headset, amenity kit and a bottle of water.
The seat-back pocket also contained the following: Safety card, Airsickness bag, Arcade Duty-Free catalogue, Stars Entertainment guide and Colours magazine.
Took a look at the flight map for this flight. It seems that this flight map is not as detailed as others as it doesn't give much info like airspeed, altitude and such.
Sitting next to a KE B77W bound for Seoul.
Safety video is played once the door closes.
First movie for me, The Great Buck Howard.
Taxi to take-off!
Goodbye Tokyo! See you again soon!
And now for a special series of photos. Since it was a clear day and I managed to nab seats on the right side (pun intended), we managed to get a clear view of Mount Fuji!
Meal service begins soon after we pass Fuji and the excitement has died down.
I picked the Indonesian option for this meal. It was a curried chicken with long beans, carrots and rice. The meal was accompanied by a bun, quinoa salad and chocolate cake. My drink of choice? Naturally, Asahi. The indonesian meal option was excellent in both flavor and portion size.
The meal trays were collected somewhere south of Osaka.
Took a walk after the meal to the toilet and visited the Galley. The toilets are clean with some basic amenities and some extras.
Continued with my movie till the the halfway mark of the flight.
Once we were over Brunei, a second service begins as the cabin crew hands out vanilla ice cream.
We soon begin our descent into Jakarta.
Landed at Soekarno-Hatta!
Flight map confirming our arrival.
And finally, exiting via the disco aerobridge of Soekarno-Hatta.
Tokyo - HND
Jakarta - CGK
I've enjoyed myself very much on Garuda. The service is excellent, the food is comparable to SQ and the cabin is comfortable. The IFE may not match EK or SQ in terms of content, but it certainly holds up against the major players very well. Garuda is certainly a carrier worth trying.
