Hello everyone! Welcome to part three of the series to Japan. This report will cover the flight from Sapporo New Chitose to Tokyo Haneda airport.



Spending six days in Japan, it was time to go home. We took the bus from Sapporo city to New Chitose Airport.

Once arrive at the airport, we headed directly to the ANA check-in counters. There were serval counters handling international transfer. Our luggages would be delivered directly to Hong Kong, and we were not require to take them back in Haneda airport.

On the third floor of the domestic terminal, there is a place called 北海度ラーメン道場 which gathers some ramen restaurants. We decided to have our dinner there.

At 19:30pm, after queuing for 10 minutes outside the restaurant, there was a place for us. We spent about 30 minutes in the restaurant.

Our flight was assigned at gate 9, which was not far away. This flight would be operated by the newest A321-200neo. ANA has ordered a total of 24 planes in which 11 of them have been delivered. The first flight was commenced on 12th September 2017 as NH641 from Tokyo Haneda to Kumamoto. My flight would be operated by JA137A which was delivered to ANA in August 2018.

Boarding was started at 21:03pm. As usual, sequential boarding was enforced and I was again in group 3. Cabin earphones were located in the airbridge for the passengers who need one. As I entered the aircraft, the crew was also distributing the earphones but I did not take it.

As I browsed through the film database, there were only two films to choose.

View of the cabin during boarding. The flight was quite full and the loading should be above 90%. Once I settled down, I handed in my logbook to one of the flight attendant.

At 21:21pm, all doors were closed and push-back was started at the same time. With a few minutes taxing, we took off at 21:29pm from RWY19R.

About seven minutes after take-off, due to the weather condition it was announced that the captain decided to keep the seatbelt on, but passengers were allowed to recline the seats.

Shortly after the seatbelt sign was turned off, I visited the lavatory.

At 22:23pm, we were informed that the arrival time would be at 22:45pm. A few minutes later, seatbelt sign was turned on again. My logbook was returned and the crew thanked me for taking the ANA flight again.
