Tokyo Ė Osaka is heavy business route frequented by VIPs, corporate executives, entertainment elites, and political type who pay for Premium Cabin. In the U.S. politicians are public servant and they will not fly first class or business class in public view. But politicians in Japan proudly fly first and business class in view of public.

Over at JAL, few key domestic routes have first class service and HND-ITM is one with first class service. Reason JAL chose HND-ITM for first class service is because there is a demand for that.

It is Thursday evening at Japan. I am looking at Fridayís ITM-HND reservation on ANA website. There are 15 flights on ITM-HND and only three flights have availability in Premium class, first two flights in early morning have availability, and one flight at noon time has one seat available. All other flights are sold out in Premium Class.
