We were booked on AA134.Since all flight from HND depart early morning getting to the airport can be a little bit of (an expensive ) challenge . I was able to take the 4:30 JR from Tokyo station and use the first Monorail at 4:58 so made it easily bit still who likes to be awake that early? After check-in we headed to the JAL Sakura Lounge what we found pretty deserted. Breakfast spread was pretty mellow with just scrambled eggs,sausages,some pastries and a couple of japanese options.
We boarded our AA 777.WE had seat 10A/B
Wifey checking out the amenity kit and slippers:)
Pre-departure beverages were offered and menus distributed. For entrees they had a Gruyere Cheese Omlette,Pancakes,a Frittata and Chicken Teriyaki . We both wanted to have pancakes but they only had 1 order left(come on there's only 3 people in front of me counting the center seat!?).I'm no complainer and just went for the omlette(what a great hubby…) but honestly if I'd pay a couple of thousands for those tickets I'd expect them to have every single item of that list and not a miserable one left there from the inbound flight…. Breakfast first course with Bagel,smoked salmon and cream cheese(Oooh of course those classy red straws:)
Mid flight they offered a couple of snack options.We went for some sushi.tasted just like at Tsukiji a day before….my sarcasm don't go through writing as much as in real life;)
Since your leaving at 7am and arriving at the same time there's no lunch/dinner so they just offer brunch.The menu consisted of either Cajun chicken or grilled ham and cheese sandwich. We both went for the latter..
Tokyo - HND
New York - JFK
Overall we had a pretty good flight.Seats were OK,service was actually pretty good.The gentleman in my row was really nice and attentive. The only thing that makes this flight really unattractive is it's schedule.Early wake up,you never have a nice big lunch/dinner and it guarantees jet lag for the next week…. JFK was pretty busy since most of the South American flights arrive early morning.Thanks to Global Entry we were out in a matter of minutes and couldn't wait to get a couple of hours of sleep before starting my day back home in NY.
