    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)

    Security Check

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

    The lounge entrance is just to the left side of security.
    [​IMG]

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

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

    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.

    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.

    Once you are at the top the Lounge Dragons are there.
    This time Diamond/Premier/OW Emerald Lounge is to the right

    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
