After brunch, I proceeded to Shinjuku Gyoen to view the autumn leaves.
It was towards the peak of the autumn leaves season and hence beautiful colours can be viewed in the park.
There is a rose garden in the park, with a variety of roses.
Enjoying the great weather on the lawn.
Passing the Shinjuku entertaiment district.
Bought a slice of cake from Harbs.
Last meal in Tokyo was my all-time favourite Ichiran ramen!
Proceeded to Haneda via a 20min monorail ride from my hotel. Checked in for the flight using one of the self-check in kiosks and dropped my bags. It was rather busy as it was the midnight red-eye peak at the international terminal.
Boarding pass issued by the kiosk.
View from the observatory deck.
Gate for the flight.
Our aircraft was towed into the gate about an hour before departure.
12 November 2017 Japan Airlines JL 35 Tokyo Haneda (HND) - Singapore (SIN) B767-300ER JA619J Economy Class Flight Time: 6H54M
Boarding commenced and again priorities were enforced.
Boarding the B767 and warmly welcomed by the JAL crew.
Similar to the previous flight, a pillow and blanket were already preset on each seat.
Boarding in progress and very efficient. Again, it was a fairly full flight on this red-eye.
View out the window.
Pillow, blanket and headsets. One feedback that I have was that the blanket seemed too short for me.
Doors closed and the 90s era safety video was shown.
Starting the taxi to the runway.
It would be a 7hrs red-eye tonight.
We had a very powerful takeoff from the shorter bay runway Rwy05.
Once seatbelt signs were switched off, the crew came around to distribute bottled water to each passenger.
This was quickly followed by giving out of hot towels. I watched the latest Transformer movie.
Refreshments were served immediately after.
As no menus were offered, the online menu would have to suffice. At a glance, the menu for the flight did not looked too appetising, but boy was I wrong!
For the late night refreshment, a packet of rice crackers and a bread was offered, which I washed down with a cup of apple juice. This was a sufficient snack prior to bedtime.
After the snack service, I paused my movie and had almost 4 hours of sleep. Surprisingly, I was able to sleep quite well on this flight.
Slept all the way till the cabin lights were turned on and crew came around again with hot towels, signalling the start of breakfast service. Again, breakfast was served exactly 2hrs before arrival. Having seen the online menu, I did not have too high hopes for breakfast, but it actually turned out to be the most delicious inflight breakfast I have ever had on a flight in economy, and probably business too! On the breakfast tray were 2 starters, fruits, yoghurt and a main course.
Main course revealed. I also had an apple juice and hot green tea to go along.
The starters consisted of mixed mushroom, and a smoked salmon with ham and potato salad. Both were delicious! Fruits were sweet and ripe.
Yoghurt was a brand I had not seen before, but was very smooth and creamy. Loved it.
The highlight was the main course, which was a superb warm bread roll with thick ham and melted cheese within, along with sides of still-runny scrambled eggs and brocolli. Honestly, this breakfast dish was amazing and I wondered how did the caterer managed to conjure up such a delicious meal in economy! Even my colleague also commented that the breakfast was fantastic!
Ending the meal with green tea while continuing with my movie. A very satisfying breakfast indeed!
Lavatory was nothing special with the basic amenities.
View of the cabin.
Descending and approaching Singapore.
Dawn is breaking while on final approach.
Landed on Rwy20R almost 20min ahead of schedule.
Thank you for flying with JAL.
Disembarking the aircraft.
Thanks for reading this rather short review.
Tokyo - HND
Singapore - SIN
Again a very good flight on JAL on this mid-haul red-eye flight. Service was excellent again and the food was amazing for economy class standards. Definitely I would have no reservations flying JAL again in the future!
