• JAL had 2 lounge areas at the Haneda International terminal. One near the immigration/security area across from gate 112, another towards the newer part of the terminal near the gate 140-149 wing (the gates the old QF 747 flights used to use).The lounges were in the middle of a refit period when ...

  • They still owe me money as well.In July 2021 when the New Zealand travel bubble was open, I booked a trip for November 2021. Then Sydney got Covid, then spread it to half the country and NZ shut the bubble, so the flights were cancelled.Qantas never gave me any options of what to do about the can...

  • Without additional expansion works at HND (both to the airfield and T3) or more airspace handed back to Japanese control from around the USAF base at Yokota, it is unlikely that there will be another slot release, at least not for day slots.The last slot allocation was allowed by opening a Domest...

  • VA had better hope that IASC will approve an extension then.IASC had been extending the HND day slot start by requirement for both QF and VA throughout the pandemic border closure. In early July, VA asked for an extension from the already granted 30 October 2022 to 30 June 2023.They were given an...

    Japan hit 10 million total cases yesterday. Their daily cases have been raising each day for the past 2 weeks. The newest daily figures are about the same as the peak of the last wave in Feb (~100k/day).The government is considering adding new measures but have thus far ruled out new restrictions...

    I haven't seen/heard any new rumors about Japans border since they started the package tour thing.Everyone has been expecting that nothing will be considered with the election, which was this past weekend.They've delayed a domestic travel campaign with the local case loads starting to increase ag...
