A bit hard landing, and fairly heavy rain The JAL domestic terminal was almost lost from sight from the international terminal. But no problems landing.

The pilot did announce in advance that he expected to reach Tokyo before the typhoon. Seems it slowed down a bit.

Landed at 14:40, a bit late for lunch. But in the end well before the typhoon.

JAL never ceases to amaze me.

For some reason, my or their mistake I don't really know, our corporate TA booked me on JL37 instead of JL35. So the lady at check in was a bit surprised to see me at 10pm. After a bit of me not understanding what she was talking about, the situation dawned on me.

After a bit of back and forth and at least two supervisers stopping by they moved me to the flight I needed, and had intended to book. And even got the "taihen, o matase itashinashita"

I was so bloody appreciative for them saving my bacon, and they apologised for keeping me there so long.

Lesson learned, read mails from corporate TA.

the dark side to launch red-eye HND-VIE service on Feb 1 2019. So what's next for JL after HND-MNL and NRT-SEA?

Europe is tricky now, as there is so little OneWorld connectivity. And while JL used to offer connections on Lufthansa from Frankfurt that seems to have died completely.

I'd still like to see Miami direct. A one stop to Sao Paulo could be nice. I would not object to a direct flight to Auckland.

As an aside, is there pretty free range on the late night Haneda to Europe flights, or where did the dark side's slot pair come from?

obviously the slots come from bribery LOL

apparently NH red-eye HND-FRA has been doing well. According to the dark side thread, thereís slot availability on HND-HEL too. Not sure why AY/JL didnít add daily service to HND.

It would need to depart HND about two hours later than the current HND FRA to get a decent arrival time into HEL, so that people would not need to loiter too long in the airport before their connection. For the summer season AY has been doing double daily to NRT, it does kind of surprise me that one did not go to Haneda in the slots are there.

Problem may be that the governments might want some competitive balance, but Star Alliance (read NH) carriers would not be interested in doing HND HEL, as connections would be rather limited.
