Tokyo is fine so give it a try!

Jump to last reply

I arrived in Tokyo on Tuesday and the only thing I have noticed is that some of the moving sidewalks and escalators have been turned off, so don't cancel that trip to Tokyo or areas south of Tokyo.

Also, don't take a taxi from the airport to Tokyo unless you just won the lottery. Take the train. I had no wait at immigration and I flew carry-on with Singapore Airlines.

Finally, Singapore Airlines, which is a Five Star Star Alliance airline was fantastic. In economy I had in-seat power, a much larger video screen with video on demand and they served two meals and one snack on the 12 1/2 hour flight. Both meals were complete meals with wine and ice cream with the first meal and a dessert with the second meal.

Finally, the fasten seat-belt sign was turned off four minutes after take-off, something that doesn't happen with a U.S. airline. As soon as the plane reached 10,000 feet, the flight attendants and the passengers could move around the airline.

I've already received my miles with Continental Airlines for this flight. It was a direct flight from LAX to Tokyo and then continues on to Singapore. I booked the flight on the Singapore Airlines website and at that time I typed in my Continental Frequent Flyer number. The price went up a little, but for $960 round trip from LAX to Tokyo direct, I was very happy with the price and the service of Singapore Airlines.
