Although I fly to Osaka, but the first station for this trip was Tokyo, so I have to pick a domestic flight from Osaka to Tokyo. Actually there are many connections after my arrival at 13:00, since I want to try the retiring A300-600R from JAL, so I have to wait for some hours in KIX airport till 19:15.
To spend the time, I planned to visit the observation hall.
The shuttle bus cost 100 Yen each way
PIDS clearly display the info and the aircraft used
CX's 777-300 was arriving
3 airliners from Mainland China
Back to the airport terminal, I still have many times, so have a early dinner at the KIX airport terminal
Check-in area of JAL's domestic flights
Security check point
Although in Class J, but still no lounge access, so spot some aircrafts
25 August 2010
Osaka/Kansai (KIX) – Tokyo/Haneda(HND)
Airline: Japan Airways
Flight: JL 188
Registration: JA 8566
Seat: 4H (Class J)
Boarding pass, Japan is widely use the 2-D barcode for domestic flight.
JA8566 just arrived from Sapporo
Seat 4H, the seat was quite narrow to be honest
View from my seat, the FA discovered I was taking pics, and she told me that taking pics is not allowed when on ground. It is only allowed after take-off.
Seat pitch, quite good!
2 - 3 - 2 seating. The Class J cabin was 90% full
Safety Instructions Card
Drink service for this short flight.
PS: Apartment at Shinjuku District
This my first time on A300-600R, but after taking JAL's one, I found that the feeling was quite similar to those older A330 (Of course, they are in same family!)
JAL actually keep the aircrafts very well, clean, tiny and well-maintained, hope they can find a new home after retiring from JAL.
For 'Class J' in JAL domestic network, it is just paying 1000Yen more than normal economic seat, so I think it is not a real J experience since the only thing you get over economic is a better seat, earlier boarding and de-boarding, that's it! So don't expect much! If you need something luxury, pick the flights with First Class service.
Stay tune for Part III
