@Carfield has trip reports on a lot of LCC's from this region

The seats don't recline and legroom on regular rows is tight. The new NRT terminal three was not used when I flew it last month, so the ground experience might not be important. I believe that there will be real gates for international flights and there will be less walking. The bridge to the domestic pier looks impressive, but it also means that lots of walking. I think I am accustomed to LCCs now but my first choice is still Peach and Jetstar Japan!
