Happy Lunar New Year! This is my first trip from Hong Kong to Tokyo. I did not spend much time in Japan this time, as I may go more often to capture scenery of Japan at various times.
The trip to Japan seems not to have much to write about. Sad that there is no windows at my window seat on the flight flying to Narita Tokyo. So I guess I will skip that flight and move to the flight from Tokyo to Hong Kong.
I picked the flight departing from Tokyo Haneda Airport. It is easy to access the airport from Tokyo Center, just take the Yamanote Line and change for the Tokyo Monorail at Hamamatsucho Station.
The platform view of Hamamatsucho Station.
You can see the Rainbow Bridge from the train to the Haneda Airport.
During my trip to the airport, I received an email notifying that my flight was rescheduled, and there was a half hour delay.
Cathay Pacific uses the aisle L for the check in counters.
As my credit card status, i can use the Premium Economy Class check in counters.
You can also see the delay information at the information screen at the check in counter.
After arriving at the airport, I proceeded to the check in counter. The ground staff firstly apologies sincerely for the delay. And the check in process was smooth. It takes around 10 minutes to pass through the security and the customs at the airport. It was efficient.
I got some lounge admission tickets and so I decided to go to the CX lounge at the Haneda Airport. The lounge is located near gate 147, which is not far away from the gate of the plane, which is gate 148.
It is not my first time to get into this Cathay Pacific Lounge at the Haneda Airport. The staff there first greeted me politely. Since I did not have lunch, I immediately headed to the counter to order some Won Ton Noodles. I quite love the Shrimp Macaroni Gratin so I ordered twice of it. It was delicious.
There is another section at the lounge and it offers some dessert. They are all delicious.
Finally there is a drink bar at the lounge. It seems that the two signature drinks from the Haneda Lounge disappeared already. I miss the Haneda Jade :( But fine, it is also great to enjoy Cathay Delight before departure.
It was also great to enjoy the nice view of the planes and the airport through the large glass windows from the cathay pacific lounge.
It was supposed to be the time to start boarding, but the announcement from the lounge says that there is a further delay on the boarding time and tell us that we can just continue to sit back and relax at the lounge and wait for further announcements. Here is the final result. The incoming flight (CX548) was delayed for around 2 hours. No wonder that my flight needs to be delayed for a period of time for preparation.
The staff at the lounge also reminded passengers who wish to exit the lounge that they can stay at the lounge for longer time and further announcement will be made if the flight is ready for boarding. They will make announcement at the lounge.
And the information board near the gate shows the delay information.
Oh, it is time to get on board finally. Here is the flight today.

First Flight date: 21 Nov 2007

What’s special for this plane is that it was painted with the oneworld alliance livery.
First Class is available for the route Hong Kong between Tokyo Haneda. Therefore even for flight Boeing 777, CX installed the inflight Wi-Fi. To keep connecting with others, I tried the service. The loading speed for images, websites was smooth.
The economy class section of the plane. The configuration is 3-3-3. Today my seat was at row 60. Seems that there is less space for you to store your belongings under the seat in front you for this row’s window seat.
And here is the safety card and some photos of the inflight entertainment system. It was smooth.
After departure, I was so lucky that I could see the magic hour after the sunset and Mount Fuji after passing through the thick layer of clouds.
Dinner was then served. No menu card was distributed. Ok, maybe it is a way to cut cost, but i guess that it would be better if they have the food and the drink information in the inflight entertainment system then. Sometimes it is really difficult to know the selection of the drink and the food, in the noisy flight environment, or when I was seated at the window seat and the flight attendant was standing in the corridor to talk to you over the two seats.
I picked the pasta option. From the online review that seems passengers are quite welcome with the pasta option. But I don’t quite like the appetizer. The taste is a little bit sour? And the pasta is fine, but it comes to be a little bit salty at the end of the pasta. Unlike other flights at Y class, they did not proactively ask passengers what to drink and offer the drink after the meal. It is a little bit strange.
The dinner ends with the Haagen-Dazs.
Here is the flight route.
Time flies and finally the flight arrived at Hong Kong International Airport. The cabin crew apologized again for the delay of the flight at the announcement.
The Lunar New Year is coming and so you could find some decorations at the Hong Kong International Airport.
In conclusion, it was still a nice flight from Cathay Pacific. The lounge experience is still great at HND, the lounge is cozy and comfortable. But I really miss the signature drink at the Haneda Airport Lounge. Hope they will bring it back in the future.
The flight experience is nice. The seat of Economy Class is comfortable for the flight. I see some attendants are quite proactive in understanding passengers' needs. But i don't know, maybe such proactivity is limited to foreign passengers only.
