Not really, the oneworld chart itself didn't change much, just the partner one.

You can simply just tag two oneworld airlines (including JL and use oneworld chart instead).

This happens from time to time, while action should be taken, we should remember that the FA is only human after all....

It was a 20 year old BKK based male CA. He took a can of beer and hid in the lavatory to consume the beer. A passenger spotted that and reported him!

Then far less "only human after all"

even the CA serving the pre-departure drink didn't know what kind of champagne it is. She had to go back to the galley to find out. Once I saw the bottle, I recognized that's the C champagne immediately.

Lounge question.

On a Monday between 3 and 6p at NRT, is there any reason to favour one First lounge over the other, besides simply the proximity of one's departure gate?

Just wondering if occupancy, views, catering, showers, etc skew the decision in one direction or the other.

Thanks in advance, if it was me I'd hit them both. But this is for my wife and teen kids. Their preference is to park in a single spot during the connection.

Let's go with sushi. NRTSIN J menu doesn't look particularly robust.
Main terminal it is.

Many thanks - Jamie

Sushi is not good anymore. Better go to the sushi bars outside. If you really want free fish, get some and move on to a quieter place.
Main lounge is a zoo.
