This is the continuation ofÂ a multi-part series covering my trip from Seattle to San Jose to Narita to Hong Kong and back as a ANA Ambassador. My flight was provided by ANA, but all opinions are my own. Part1: San Jose to Tokyo on the 787 DreamlinerÂ – Part2:Â Connecting in Tokyoâ€™s Narita Airport.
After a nice long flight over the Pacific Ocean onboard the 787 and a brief stop in the All Nippon Airways (ANA) Lounge in Narita, it was time for me to make my connecting flight to Hong Kong.Â The last part of my journey that â€œdayâ€ was on-board an ANA Boeing 767-300ER. Â At the other end of the four hour flight lay a bed for me to finally get some rest.
It is not hard to tell just where you are, and if the sign doesn’t help, perhaps all the ANA & JAL aircraft around are a clue – Photo: Mal Muir | AirlineReporter.com

A majority of flights to Asia from the westcoast, require a connection through an intermediary stop. Â Cathay Pacific has their hub in Hong Kong, Asiana and Korean have their hubs at Incheon. However, four airlines have their hubs in Tokyo: Delta, United, All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL).
This means that on a good day you can see a variety of aircraft and flights in and out of Narita International Airport (NRT). Â This makes the airport not only nice for the general traveler, but also for the AvGeek. I recently was able to take a closer look at transitioning in NRT while on my way to Hong Kong (HKG).
