Took the coach from ITM to KIX, check-in the Nikko KIX Hotel
http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z23/sutrakhk/Flight/Japan/Part6/030.jpg

My room is facing one of the two runways of KIX, but for my observation in that morning, only 1 UPS flight used this runway in that 3 hours!

To compare with Class J with JAL, ANA Premium Class is really a true Business Class product with lounge access, decent meal and drinks, rather than just a better seat for JAL. Good job ANA!

That boxed meal looks awesome! So it wasn't a hot meal right, the box was at room temperature, but the soup was hot?

So great that you took so many pictures! The lounge looks really nice...so was the only food there the little packets of snack food?

Nikko Kansai Airport Hotel really is nice. It's just a 5 minute walk from the terminal, and great after coming off a long flight (DFW-KIX which AA used to fly). There's the lounge on the top floor that gives you a good view of the runway, with landings and takeoffs.
I miss DFW-KIX-DFW on AA, that was my favorite flight.
And it sounds like you had great service on ANA for a short flight. The Japanese airlines are really great in service on domestic flights even though they are usually short flights.
Have you kissed a 777 today?

You are right, the meal was in room temperature, and the miso soup was hot

The only food offering was those little packets of snack, Iuckily I had a ramen before going to the lounge

That is good to hear! I see a lot of people buy sushi from the super market where it is kept cool and eat it right away... If they would let it return to room temperature it would taste SO much better!
