Hello everyone, welcome to the fourth part of the trip to Japan. This final part will cover the flight from Tokyo Haneda to Hong Kong.



The ANA domestic transit counter was located next to gate 70. Once we presented the bus ticket, we went downstairs and got on the ANA bus.

It took about 15 minutes to get to the international terminal and we arrived at the departure hall.

The next stop for me was definitely the plane spotting at the observation deck. In the evening, usually we were able to see flights to Southeast Asia and long haul flights to Europe or America.

We spent about 15 minutes on the observation deck and then we went air-sided. It did not take a long time to pass through the security check and immigration. Gate 144 was the gate for our flight to Hong Kong and we arrived at the gate about one hour prior to the departure time. This flight was also codeshare with United Airlines UA7931.

We went downstairs to the waiting area of our gate. Not much people were waiting there.

The gate was not opened yet.

Our plane was already parked at the gate. The flight was handled by Boeing767-300ER. JA622A would take us to Hong Kong tonight. This plane was delivered to ANA in February 2011.

Boarding was called at 0:26am.

Seat pocket items are placed at the bottom of the partition. Headset was also found inside the pocket. When I settled down, I handed my logbook to one of the crew.

At 0:44am, all doors were closed and a few minutes later pushback was commenced. Safety video was followed immediately.



It was raining quite heavily outside and I was really glad that the weather was so good during the past few days. Finally it took 20 minutes to taxi to the runway 05, which is quite far from the international terminal. We took off at 1:09am.

As the seatbelt sign was turned off 10 minutes after takeoff, I took out the monitor stored below the handrest.

Then I started to watch a Japanese movie. All the cabin lights were at the same time turned off.

Two hours later when I finished the movie, we were flying somewhere between Japan and Taiwan.


photo dsc08431

Immediately I started to watch another Japanese movie but could not finish before landing.


photo dsc08432

At 3:33am, lights on two sides of cabin were turned on. About 10 minutes later, meal was served. As always you can choose between  Japanese style and Western style and I chose the latter. (English muffin and omelet with ratatouille)
Appetizer
Potato salad
Smoked salmon
Beet and onion salad Caper
Dill
Salad
Mixed leaves Italian dressing

After the meal, I opted for a coffee.

At 4:20am, I went to the lavatory.

At 4:27am, the cockpit announced that the landing would be approximately in one hour and the final approach would be in 35 minutes.  I had a look at the seat pocket items which include the ANA magazine, duty-free shopping, entertainment guide and the service information.

The A380 has already been added to the fleet page.

At 4:57am seat beat sign was turned on. We were entering the Hong Kong airspace from the east.


photo dsc08445

We landed on RWY25L at 4:13am local time. Total flight time was 4 hours and 4 minutes. My logbook was soon returned. This plane would stay overnight in Hong Kong and return to Tokyo Narita the next day morning as NH812.

While we were waiting for the disembarking, I took the last chance to watch the behind the scene of the safety video.



Many thanks to all the crews for filling in such a beautiful logbook for me.

      Hi KévinDC, thanks for your comment. The flight indeed was very comfortable, and the service was far than enough for red-eye flight. I think this is essential for a five star airlines.
