Welcome to my 2nd flight report!

In this flight-report, I will be flying to Sapporo from Osaka on Japan Airlines B738.

I continued from my HKG-KIX sector on Cathay Pacific. Unfortunately Cathay refused to direct my baggage to CTS so we needed to check in again. I decided to eat breakfast first and then plane spotting.

Singapore Airlines A380 just landed in KIX from Singapore.

We saw a Garuda Indonesia plane landing also.

Our plane, JA329J today.

I decided to stop plane spotting after around 10 minutes and decided to get some sleep.

Anyways, boarding commenced at 0920 and every passenger gets Christmas gifts. There are photographers from JAL taking pictures so I assume this is a special Christmas Celebration flight. Turns out Celebration Activities are only on the ground.

I am assigned 15K, first row of economy. This is a extra legroom seat but I am curious why this is classified as a normal seat. The legroom here is even bigger than those Emergency Exit Row seats.

Taking off from KIX

There is actually a contemporary drink service, although I am too tired to take a photo of it. I chose JAL's original drink Skytime Kiwi, although I don't really like the flavor of it.

We are experiencing turbulences when we arrive the coast of Hokkaido.

After 20 minutes or so of turbulence, we began our descend into CTS.

We arrived around 5 minutes ahead of schedule and we claim our baggages back around 10 minutes after. I appreciate the efficiency of CTS.

This will be my last report for my trip, and I am too exhausted to take pictures for my inbound flight. Thanks for reading (apologize for the lack of photos), hope you enjoyed it and verdict below.

Japan Airlines

Cabin crew10.0

Osaka - KIX


Chitose - CTS



Japan Airlines- Fair enough. Cabin is well maintained and practical and the legroom is awesome. Crew always have smiles on their faces and there isn't really any entertainment onboard. You can't ask too much for meal services on domestic flights, drinks are anyways still better than nothing like British Airways.
KIX- Immigration a bit slow IMO considering there's very less people. Very short walk from immigration to gate, and the airport is just practical and well maintained.
CTS- Perfect. Luggages came out fast, clean (though a bit old) and staff immediately get the priority luggages out (although not mine's, not priority member anyways).
