As per my request, JAL's gate agent changed my seat to the one without neighbour in the last minutes before they start boarding procedure. Closing my RTW trip with Japanese hospitality is not bad at all. However, as always in JAL cabin, one middle-age Japanese male passenger kept bitching against a CA. That made entire cabin service slowing down. Once Julia, a Korean American copywriter from WK Portland, told me she didn't like Korean Air because their passenger sucks. I, as Japanese, have the same impression with this Japanese national flag carrier. I know airline itself is trying hard to be better, but...

A Chinese new year gift from JAL. 5 yen Japanese coin is enclosed. The sound "5 yen" in Japanese also means an "inseparable bond " between 2 people. JAL might need stronger bond with customers facing tougher competition in aviation industry. The final leg of my round-the-world trip. 16 flights and 50088 miles in total, equivalent to more than 4 round trip between NRT and LAX. 20 inflight meals in all mean I need to go on a diet. JAL B747-400 HKG-NRT. The 460th flight in my lifetime.
JALからのチャイニーズ・ニューイヤー・ギフト。袋の中に日本の5円玉。「5円」というのは、もちろん「ご縁」ということ。環境が厳しくなるいっぽうの航空業界。JALは顧客とのより強い「ご縁」が欲しいのかもしれない。世界一周の最終レグ。全16フライトで合計50088マイル。つまりNRT-LAXの4往復以上。食べた機内食は計20食。ダイエットが必要。JAL B747-400 HKG-NRT。生涯460フライト目。
