    Embarassingly, I am part Japanese but I cannot read. :oops:

    Does the press release indicate if the improvements (JL food and beverage, F class section) to the Admirals Club will be available ONLY during the 7:30-11:30 AM bank of flights? Or does it say that these will be available to AA's passengers in the evening as well?

    I'm guessing it doesn't address this issue actually. :D

    It doesn't specifically say so but I assume it will just be for the morning only

    I figured as much. I linked your post in the AA forum for people to see, maybe if the AA rep sees the posts we can get them to clarify for us.

    I'll be flying BOS-NRT-FRA on JL in J in December, so I might hop into the AC then to check out the implementation, though it'll be old news by then.

    may be they should just get rid of AC and let JAL operate that as their 3rd lounge :p I never visit the NRT AC before, I will try to check it out in June when I have a morning flight at NRT

    I have a flight to NRT in a few days. It's my first time there, and I'm relatively good at following instructions. :p

    Tell me which lounges I need to go compare. I'll be flying in on JAL metal. OWMDers will know why. :D

    That's me. And, I don't know anything about NRT lounges. Care to educate the free loader?

    just stick with the JAL F lounges (one in the main building, one at satellite building for NRT-BOS flight)!

    CX J lounge sucks
    AA AC is one of the best in the system
    And there's a QF lounge too

    Looks like I'm going in and out of T2...

    Haven't figured out where the clubs are on the maps.

    Are they just for departures or for arrivals as well?

    departure only. but if you need a quick shower after arrival, you can use the shower facilities with your JL007 business class boarding pass

    JAL extends NRT arrival shower campaign till Mar 31 2013

    Thanks for the info! I can't seem to discern that from the NRT airport website. Was headed to JAL's website next, but you've answered my question. I already located the AC and may stop by just for comparison purposes.

    Thanks for the info. Based on when I land, I probably will just go downtown as you suggest. Well, as long as they tuck me in nicely on the 787 flight. :D

    by the way here are the menus (japanese only, but ex-NRT has pics)

    April BOS-NRT: http://www.jal.co.jp/cgi-bin/jal/in...ass_tmp=c&month=4&dep=bos&arr=nrt&seatclass=c

    April NRT-BOS: http://www.jal.co.jp/cgi-bin/jal/in...ass_tmp=c&month=4&dep=nrt&arr=bos&seatclass=c

    instead of the regular fish dish, they are serving lobster on NRT-BOS :D

    And your IFE info: http://www.jal.co.jp/en/inflight/inter/jen/


    Enjoy your flights and I am looking forward to reading your trip reports (you are going to write one right? :p)

    Great looking pics. Thanks for all the info! My wife is now even more pissed at me knowing I'll be eating lobster. :D

    I will be preparing trip reports. While I'm gone, I'll be doing a fair amount of blogging, so you may see stuff quicker at www.pizzainmotion.com.

    My feeble mind finds it easier to post pics from my iPhone using Wordpress on the fly.

    Yep agree with this. Don`t bother with any other lounges other than JL F lounge unless you are bored and need to kill time sampling the alternatives.

    I may end up going to the airport early to explore since I haven't been there before. But, I'm sure I'll end up in the F lounge. :D

    AA notified me that the improvements will only be available during the JL co-location period in the AM, so no beef curry.
