After visiting some cities such as Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kobe, Kyoto, Nara it’s time to fly to Kumamoto. And this flight will be with a new airline in the log. The very first ATR42-600 in Japan operated by Amakusa Airlines. A very small airline which fly with only one plane.

I came a bit earlier at the airport, which allow me to discover how was organized the Itami Airport. Then when it was time, I went to the counter to print my boarding pass and to drop my luggage. The counter crew gave me a piece of paper, where was shown the way to follow to my boarding gate. So convenient ! Now it’s time to discover this new plane and airline…

Before to arrive at the gate, I had time to walked a bit in the airport. There were no many plane to watch in my area, I just quickly saw a B777 which was departing. And then I went to sat and wait my boarding. Just before boarding it was announced that due to some bad weather in Kumamoto, the plane could be force to land in Fukuoka (to be honest, it would help me rather to fly to Kumamoto). Then our boarding was called and I walk into the plane. I was the first passenger to enter into the plane.

Inside I was welcome by a stewardess dressed in blue. The same color than the plane. I really like the colors of this plane. I found them great. Not so common. The boarding was quick. As you can observe some people were taking pictures of this nice plane. Then it was time to taxi for take off.

Few minutes after take off we reach our cruise level. The weather was very cloudy. Few minutes before the service started I took time to see the pocket cotent. There were the airline « mag » which was a laminated folder, and the safety card in the airline’s color. Then the stewardess came to offer us our package. There was an orange juice, and Amakusa Sable and an wet napkin. It was good for this short flight.

During the flight the weather was not getting better. It was raining a lot. We were able to see the rain with the speed, it was impressive. Then I went to talk with the stewardess. And had a look on this new cabin. The pitch was fine, and the seat comfortable for a short flight. Then we start our descent to Kumamoto.

The weather in Kumamoto was really bad. A lot of rain, but we land safely. During our descent I was able the see some damages on some houses due of the last earthquake few weeks ago. Then when we arrive, the airport staff, offer us and open for us some umbrellas, I found that great. What a customer service of quality ! I love that ! A little drawing of this nice plane to end this report !
