I was very excited for this flight as I’ve read great things about ANA, and given the amazing time I had in Japan I had high expectations for the food and service on this flight.  I arrived at Haneda with about 1.5 hours to spare (fun fact: there are no Priority pass lounges in HND, only NRT has them).

According to ANA’s website, there are 2 lounges, one near gate 110 and one near 114.  Since gate 110 is right after security, I figured the lounge near 114 would be more quiet.  However, I spent about 20 minutes trying to find this lounge before I gave up and went to the one near gate 110.  I have never failed to find a lounge before so I have no idea what happened here…

This lounge was one of the best business class lounge I have been to – it wasn’t crowded, seating was comfortable and the food was excellent.  The buffet served high quality Japanese food and there was a fresh made to order soba/udon/curry station.  I had 2 bowls of delicious soba and udon.  After watching videos for 30 minutes I asked for a shower, but was told it would be a 30 minute wait.  Boarding was due to start in 40 minutes so I waited, but the buzzer never went off, so once again I didn’t get my shower.
