JL ITM-NRT F Solo Seats / HND-ITM Class J

This is a work related trip I fly this routing three times a year, but since I never made a trip report here is the first one.

My work schedule usually comes out about 3 weeks prior. I usually keep the the last week of Feb open until mid-March clear of any work trips until my Tokyo trip gets confirmed.

I went to bed at 1.30am after doing some last minute packing. Then at 6:20am the alarm goes off. I had a hard time getting out of bed, but managed to get out and shower and be ready by 6:40am. We were planning to leave home by 6:45am, but when I was ready dad wasn't finished yet. We ended up leaving at 7:10am oops. We got to the airport still plenty early at 7:40am for a 8:20am departure.

We quickly walked over to the Check-in Counters. We checked our bags in.


Checkin took less than a minute. We were only issued bag tags as we had touch and go boarding pass with our JAL Credit Card.

I still didn't eat breakfast so I walked over to the ANA side of the terminal to buy bread (only bakery at ITM)


I wouldn't mind Tonkatsu 7:50am in the morning (if they were open)

After passing security (which took less than 1 minute) of course no TSA touch my junk

The lounge entrance is just to the left side of security.


After entering the lounge and taking the elevator up. You are greeted by the lounge dragon (or should I say nice attendant who bowed).


Just one photo of the lounge today (as I was starving and not in picture mode yet)


Food section is more important than the lounge seating right ?
Alcohol at 8am? There were tons of people drinking Beer




My aircraft 77W from the lounge

Make sure to find this on all JAL flights All the information is there for you


Flight was nothing special and was served Apple Juice and crackers. This was the 7th cracker I had in Feb (7 domestic sectors) and 8th apple juice.

Arrival was on the B runway. We landed at 9.40am (on schedule) parked at gate 63.


This way to baggage claim

After 5 days in Tokyo and finished with work. It was time to go back to Osaka now. I was dropped off at the airport by a nice customer at 3.40pm for a 4.30pm departure

Check-in Desks


Check-in took 30 seconds. I was hungry so off to starbucks for a sandwich.


After getting the sandwich I went past security. After security the lounge is to the right. (sorry for the blurry pictures)
The North and South Side Terminal Lounges are equally big and basically a mirror image of each other.



North Side Lounge


Once the door opens


Up the Escalotor

Was one of the last to board again


Welcome Aboard


Flight time to Osaka was 50 minutes today. We took off from the new runway opened last year. Nothing special with the flight. I got to see the manifest. All Class J seats except one was filled with JMB Elites.

Some random photo's of the airplane during flight







IFE controller


Drink Cart and Class J


Terrible load today. Class J full but Y was empty



Landed on time (shot right during deboarding.


Bags took 10 minutes to come out.


Thanks for reading this short report. (If you want another similar one in 3-4 months I'll be glad to do it again with different photos)

Is this only to JL ? Does NH planes have these as well ? I have never seen those on NH at all. Did your return plane also has it even being ex-JD plane ?

That's a lot of photos for such a short trip!

Interesting to see this equipment used on a very short domestic sector. Does JAL actually sell F seats on JL3002 ITM-NRT? I know it's operated by a 773 with the solo seats as per your trip report, but on the JAL website it seems only business and economy seats can be booked on this flight number. There are plenty of other flights where F seats can be booked, but they are ITM-HND operated by 777 with a 2x2x2 first class arrangement (no solo seats).

Just out of interest, any suggestions how to book F on JL3002?

There is no F service on this flight. 3 class international config used as 2.
