Here is my first flight report. It will not be a lots reading, I let the pictures tell most of story. Japan airlines counters are located in Narita airport terminal 2. There is a separate Fisst class check-in counters L, it is an semi-open space in design, there are sofa seating area opposite to the counters. I was greet by a staff satnding at the entrance and guided me to the counter. The check-in service was smooth and effcient, done in less than 5 minutes.
On my way to OneWorld fast track, I happened to noticed a JL first class exclusive fast track, I was not told there is such service, anyway, I walked in. I was the only passenger and it took me about 10 minutes to go through both security and immigration.
The lounges are right next to the exit of immigration. There are two first class lounges located on two different floors with its own entrance. The lower one has full service including shower & massage facilities, an Sushi bar with a restaurant area, and business section with printers, cable-free phone chargers, and desktop computers.
Foods selection was good, such bar with two chefs on site preparing fresh sushi was a brilliant idea. A sake bar was next to it as well. For shower and massage service, reservation needed to be made upon arrival to the lounge, a reservation card was given for appointed time. I ordered scalp massage, it was good and lasted only 10 minutes. I also took a shower before I left the lounge.
The boarding gate was about 10 minutes walk from the lounge, Over the gate area, the priority line was full of business class and higher-tier-member passengers. I was asked to be boarding right after those assistance needed passages. I did not wait in line.
Upon on board, pre-departure champagne was offered with a warm scented towel.
Take off was smooth, soon after we reached an altitude, flight attendants started the cocktail and lunch service. One who served me was very professional, she practically explained to me the entire menu in detail, furthermore, she was able to tell what the chef had ideas and how to eat on the every dishes I ordered.
Once I was done with lunch, one of attendants made a bed on my next empty seat. The mattress has two sides to choice, soft side or hard side. The bed was extremely comfortable.
The amenity kit was distributed after lunch, it came with a big size men skin care cream. I love the kit design, it has a hook to hang.
I felt hungry after a good sleep, I ordered a Japanese light meal set, and a western light meal set.
Here are the pictures of lavatory, one thing worth of mention is the toilet seat has butt washing function.
Soon we were approaching the destination, I thought I needed to eat something for breakfast, I ordered the desserts which was highly recommended by the flight attendants.
At the end of the trip, fight attendants present a gift of Japanese handkerchief to every first class passenger.
Landing and taxing were peaceful, although the door used for getting off the plane was in the business class cabin, we four first class passengers were escorted to leave the plane first before anyone. The US immigration is always busy, and there was no fast track service. It took me 30 minutes to clear the immigration, the luggage was ready for me to pick up in luggage area. Going through the custom was simple and fast. I did not take any pictures of O’Hare airport, I totally forgot, I apologize for that.

Over all the trip was way above my expectation, the flight attendants were very attentive and professional, they paid attention to details and always there to help. I enjoyed the trip.
