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.

BTW, thanks for this report on AA's Haneda-NYC route--the first on this site. They should really be using a refurbed cabin for this long flight.
Thank you for this short report about a long flight.
Thank you for this FR ! And yes, nobody wants to wake up that early. Well...at least I don't ^^ I don't even know if you could make it to NRT at a reasonnable price (either taxi or hotel there).
I like the aspect of the catering in general. I agree it's cheap to load only 3 pancakes, but the omelet looks good. The Japanese tray is nice also and the salmon looks tasty.
Thanks for sharing :)
Actually it departed from HND and transportation was easier than I thought it's gonna be.We stayed just by Tokyo station so took an early JR to Hamamatsucho and from there the first monorail to the airport.it was convenient and obviously waaay cheaper than a cab.
thank your for this report. the cartering is light! in particulary for the second service
