Kansai Airport Express Haruka Hello Kitty

Review: Kansai Airport Express HARUKA (Hello Kitty)

When making my way to Kansai Airport to see the Flying Eye Hospital, I took JR’s Kansai Airport Express HARUKA from Kyoto to the airport and then back to Shin-Osaka. With this train being the only direct rail link between the airport and the two stations, depending on your travel plans chances are it might

Review: Premium Lounge 2 at Nagoya Centrair Airport

Nagoya Centrair Airport is home to several lounges as well as a variety of Priority Pass facilities worth visiting. One of the lounges is Premium Lounge 2 which is a “card lounge” in one way or another accessible by all departing and arriving passengers.

Review: Comfort Hotel Central International Airport (Nagoya)

As I had a one-night layover at Nagoya Centrair when trying out Fuji Dream Airlines last month, I had to book a hotel at the airport. When choosing my hotel, I was looking for one I haven’t stayed at yet. That ruled out the Four Points, Toyoko Inn, and TUBE Sq capsule hotel. Ultimately, I

Orbis Flying Eye Hospital: Inside One of the World’s Last Two MD-10s

Some of my favorite aircraft are airliners that found a second life that’s as meaningful if not more so than hauling passengers and freight. That includes aircraft like NASA’s now-retired 747SP SOFIA and its still-active DC-8 airborne lab, and firefighting DC-10s and 747s. Another such aircraft is an MD-10 used by Orbis, a non-profit organization

Priority Pass at Nagoya Centrair

Priority Pass at Nagoya Centrair: Lounges, Restaurants & Spa

Most major airports in Japan with the notable exception of Tokyo Haneda have a lounge or two participating in Priority Pass. That said, none offers as extensive a selection of Priority Pass facilities as Nagoya Centrair. While the selection shrunk at the end of March 2023 with a participating restaurant (Ethan Stowell Pizza & Pasta)

Boeing 767 vs. 777: How Do They Compare?

The 767 and 777 are both twin-engine, twin-aisle widebodies. The 767 first went into service in 1982, and the 777 followed later in 1995. Passenger variants of the 767 are no longer in production and the numbers in passenger airline fleets are dwindling. However, the 767 freighter and tanker are still available. The 767 has

Review: Fuji Dream Airlines E175 from Shizuoka to Sapporo Okadama

For a long time, I was intrigued by Fuji Dream Airlines – a relatively small Japanese airline operating an all-Embraer fleet on flights primarily from Nagoya Komaki and Shizuoka to airports around the country. While a couple of years ago I had a chance to interview their COO for an article about the airline that

Boeing 787 vs. Airbus A321: How Do They Compare?

Boeing 787 vs. Airbus A321: How Do They Compare?

Boeing 787 and Airbus A321 aircraft are different in many respects. Whilst both are twin-engine aircraft, that is perhaps where the similarities end. The 787 is a significantly larger and heavier aircraft than the A321 and they tend to serve different markets. The newer 787 first went into service in 2011 compared to 1994 for

Review: Your Lounge at Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport

Being served just by Fuji Dream Airlines and ANA on the domestic side and a handful of international airlines, Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport is one of the smaller ones in Japan.
