We were jokingly saying while taking this picture that a 737 in good light beats a 787 in crappy light. Perhaps there's some degree of truth haha.
772s from two rival airlines meeting briefly at the famous "A10" location on a beautiful afternoon.
This ANA 787 service is ready for push back, ahead of a 90-minute evening flight to Tokyo.
In two short years Peach has taken delivery of ten brand new A320s - all the while adding new destinations and frequencies. Looks like the business model is working well.
Twice a week service from Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia, with a flight time of about 75 minutes north of Sapporo.
This is the beginning of the end. ANA is no longer running daily scheduled 747 services to Sapporo - only a handful of flights on selected dates before retirement of the jumbo fleet.
Arriving early morning from Bangkok, Sapporo is becoming more and more popular for Thai tourist despite the very cold weather. Not hard for them to fill up this daily 777-300 flight.
Going strong in Japan, I hope Jetstar will consider business opportunities at secondary cities in Japan.
Finally my first shot of JASDF beautiful 747, one of the cleanest 747 around. Seen here landing at RWY36R after 3 rounds of touch and go.
