Lounge

 

I am already familiar with the United Club Lounge since we were here in February, on our way to Tokyo. This is actually a very nice and spacious lounge with very good food on the buffet area.

Aircraft

Boeing 767-300ER Version 2

 

Check-in

One doesn't need to get to the airport to drop the luggages as one can do it right at the City Terminal.

Boarding

Boarding at Gate 28, an hour later than the scheduled time , due to bad weather in Hongkong

Arrival in Osaka

We arrived at the Osaka Kansai International Airport around 9:30 in the evening so we just headed direct to the hotel. The following day, we started our tour by visiting the Osaka Castle.

Conclusion

 

Flying with ANA in business class is always a wonderful experience for me. It was my first time to have a Japanese meal on board and it surely won't be the last. The cabin looked very clean which is a testament why they won the Best Airline Cabin Cleanliness Award last month, according to Skytrax. To ANA, arigato gozaimasta!
