best lounge for buisness class ANA in Narita Terminal One

I will be flying buisness class from Narita to Bangkok next Saturday. Can someone tell me where the best staralliance lounge is, I am a Staralliance Gold member, and where it is located. I think ANA flyes out of terminal one if I am not mistaken. What type of amenities are in the lounge?

Use the ANA business lounge closest to your departure gate.

Thanks for pointing that out, must have been brain haze. I am actually staralliance gold (air canada superelite) and a starwood platinum.

My advice remains the same. Both ANA lounges are basically the same. The primary difference is location.

I believe the only other *A lounge in NRT is UA, which features a beer machine but no food. ANA has a variety of alchol and non-alchol drink, a noodle bar, veggi sushi, and various finger foods. Both UA and ANA loungs have shower rooms, but UA's usually is a wait, they make you wear a pager and when the shower room becomes available, they page you.

No beer machines in ANA Lounges?

I would love to try one on my coming trip to/from Narita after seeing it on youtube(http://youtube.com/watch?v=oP2ArIYWw3o)

If you like sunlight, or a more airy lounge, I would suggest the one up in the 50 gates. I think it's much nicer than the dark one in the 40s and make it a habit to always go there.

I second that. Gate 40 lounge has no window at all. The atmosphere at gate 50 is a lot better with amazing view outside.

Of course there are beer machines in the NH lounges.

I have to agree with this. Whether flying UA or ANA, I almost always use the ANA lounge located in the 50 gates. It is quite nice!

There is an underground tunnel that you can walk between the 50 gates and the 40 gates, so I don't mind using the lounge that is not closest to my departure gate. It also gives me a chance to stretch my legs before a long flight.

Best Narita Lounge: ANA

ANA's Lounge at Narita is the better than United's. Read my review:

Narita Lounges

The wife and I depart HNL for ICN via NRT tomorrow AM. She's in international first, and I've been upgraded from coach to business. I travel on business for the US Gov't hence the cheap seat purchase. The wife travels on my dime or I should say miles. As a cancer survivor I figure she deserves international first class, so she gets it. Anyway whenever we're in the NARITA airport we use UA's First Class Lounge which is an elevator ride upstairs from the business class lounge, better booz and lots of food, and on par with the ANA lounge. If we could not use the UA first class lounge, we would no doubt hoof it on over to the ANA lounge, and we have in the past.
