    Joe Is it crazy to try a milage run LAX to Tokyo in one day? Arrive Tokyo at 4:05pm and depart at 6:10 pm on the same day. Can it even be done?

    Can it be done? Sure. You go through transit security and right back in to the departures area at NRT.

    Is it crazy? Absolutely. But that doesn't mean it is necessarily a bad idea. You have to do the cost/benefit analysis on the time/cash you'll spend versus the value of the points and the status you'll realize.

    2:05 transit in NRT is quite doable on a single ticket with no checked baggage.
