Nice pics..NRT ones bring back lots of good memories from living in Japan for 4 years. I also liked your SFO pics. I've flown UA out of SFO to SEL and to HKG, but that was some time ago before the new international terminal even began to be built. SFO and LAX are both great for trans Pacific heavies.
I was able to go inside the new international terminal at SFO about a month before 11 September. It was really nice, so I'm glad I got to see it.

EC001 -- yeah, the EMB-190s are very comfortable. Tonnes of space, legroom, nice large tray tables, great IFE, 2x2 seating all add up to a very pleasant experience. Aeroflot's livery on the A330 is awesome. The A330 is already one of the nicest-looking planes in the sky, then add that livery, and bang -- perfect combo.
LondonCity -- I was really disappointed to see the outdated interior of the Upper Deck when I boarded. The service was really good, and the seats had adequate recline. Always nice to rest your feet on the Upper Deck side storage compartments too. I didn't even bother with the IFE other than watching the moving map channel. The laptop provides more than enough enjoyment as a replacement to inadequate IFE.
Triple7Man -- San Francisco was crazy busy on the United-side of the airport. Planes waiting for gates, widebodies as far as the eye could see. It was nice to see Singapore and All Nippon 77Ws too.
BA319-131 -- thanks for the comments on the pics. The camera is a Canon 20D, about 5 years old now, with a 100-400L lens, and 17-40L lens. The camera hasn't failed me once. Would be nice to upgrade to something newer, but why bother when the 'old' camera still functions fine.
Part 2 (the trip back) will be posted here in a few hours.

I commented already about this on another thread, but I'm still OMG over it. I studied photography in school (mostly film though...fine arts...I reject digital for my artwork). I honestly don't think I've ever seen 20D pictures like this. I'm quite sure it is the L series lenses that are responsible for producing such amazing pictures. I've long been of the opinion that Canon lenses (L series especially) RAW and postprocess? are better than anything from Nikon's line. Even though Nikon has the storied history and brand name like no other. I assume you shoot in RAW and postprocess? I'd kill to know what you do to get that 'pop'. PM?
