Just boarded the first of 4 flights to OKA. Yes, one flight more than necessary for 1250 extra miles.

I...I'm morbidly curious. MAN-LHR-FRA-TYO-OKA ? Or did you get more inventive than that? I'm a simpleton this time around. IAH-NRT and back, HND-OKA and back nested in between.

Why should I go to LHR? Iím a Star Alliance flyer and thereís no *A flight from MAN to LHR. In fact no domestic *A flight in the UK. Iím flying MAN-FRA-MUC-HND-OKA.

I'm at the UA former IFC lounge in SFO, having a glass of Moet. UA 871 SFO-TPE is 6 hours from now. Flying RNO-SFO-TPE-OKA. Lounge is very quiet now, but will fill up as the morning progresses. Looking forward to meeting everyone soon.

Thatís a long time in a lounge. I hope they have a proper glass for your MoŽt. Last time I was there they didnít even have any wine glass!

SFO is a horrible airport. Today is a sunny, clear day. But last week there were storms and rain, and two days last week RNO-SFO flights were cancelled. The regional flights ae delayed / cancelled with bad weather in SFO, but the international flights leave on time! Unless I schedule a 4 hour layover in SFO, I am rolling the dice. But to answer your question, yes they have proper glasses this time. That reminds me, I must go for a refill of the bubbles! Haha!

Onto my 3rd lounge of the day... in the QF F lounge where I just booked my ICN-OKA flight on jeju. Arriving at 7C 1802 at 15:45 the 29th.

Yes, I did a last minute swap TPE>ICN on the redeye. But will get to try out CX on the A359.

Landed in HND early. No wait at immigration. Now waiting for my bag to come out.
P.S. Mine was the 7th bag to appear.
