If you have to spend the night at the airport or have a late flight to Tokyo and want to avoid the trouble of transferring to the city centre, the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyo is located in Terminal 2. Royal Park Hotel The Haneda in the International Terminal is another option for travellers in transit, while for those who are travelling on a budget there is capsule hotel First Cabin Tokyo Haneda.
Both terminals at Haneda International Airport are served by the Tokyo monorail; the trip to Hamamatsucho Station takes around 15 minutes and from there you can change to other lines depending on your final destination. Those who are not in a hurry can take a bus, which takes about 40 minutes to reach the centre – but take into account that there might be delays due to traffic.
You will find a wide range of restaurants at Narita International Airport that should satisfy your tastes. Apart from Japanese options like Nanosato, you will find Seiyoken with Chinese cuisine and Jewel specializing in pasta. If you want a fast meal, go to Subway or Bagel & Bagel.
Parents who are travelling to Tokyo with their children can rest assured that Narita International Airport is well accustomed to small passengers. Each terminal features Kids Parks where children can burn off their energy and have a fun time before the flight. For those travelling with infants there are also nurseries with breastfeeding booths, changing stations and washbasins.

Pros: "Friendly attentive staff."
Cons: "The seat was narrow and after 9 hours, not comfortable... Normal for economy though"
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good and the quantity of the snack meager. Worse, the crew refused to give a second roll to our 12 year old even which means that either they only have one for each passenger (and every passenger had theirs) or the crew are parsimonious."

Pros: "free movies"
Cons: "somehow new seat of this aircraft is very uncomfortable with my hip. It was kind of painful to sit tight for long period. I think my body likes older seat which actually reclining toward behind other guests. or I guess maybe I just get older. I asked 2 beer cans but completely ignored. maybe I was too shy."

Cons: "Had to switch gates 2 times"

Cons: "Queued up with other Star Gold etc. customers (they have 2 queues, one for Diamond and one for other statuses). There's a sign on a pole. People queue up, then they swivel the pole round so I'm in the wrong queue now. Try to move, lose place in queue, they swivel it back the way it was... Good airline but boarding especially for domestic is disorganised with poor signage etc."
Pros: "Ana is the best"
Pros: "I love ANA airlines ❤"
Pros: "Clean cabin. Courteous and friendly attendants. Inflight amenities were excellent."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "Delayed boarding"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No food available only drinks"
Pros: "Staff are very attentive and helpful; the entertainment system is top class"
Cons: "On boarding, the markers for "business" and "diamond" class are only distinguished by a (low) signpost at the head of the queue. If you're further back or not so tall s difficult to see which queue is correct... quite a few people (not me fortunately!) got turned away because they don't know ANA's boarding system. Also a problem with boarding at HND where the overhead monitors show BIz but not First/Diamond. As some other reviews pointed out, BBC news just didn't work. CNN worked intermittently."

Pros: "Great movies!!"

Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable to sleep in."
Pros: "nice sevice"
Pros: "Fast boarding. Early arrival. Comfortable seat."
Cons: "I had to ask 3 times for an arrival card from the crew. Bread was dry. There should have been a breakfast served prior to landing, but no food service after 1 a.m. though flight arrived at 7:40 a.m. Timing of meals was not convenient for me at all. They wake you up at 1 a.m. for your main dinner. I would have preferred to sleep until 5 a.m. then have a good breakfast. The amenity kit in Business Class was substandard when compared to other airlines"
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "Newer Aircraft and very convenient"
Cons: "I dont see any thing to improve"
Pros: "I didn't like the trip much. After the trip we found out that our body was bitten by fleas. Our body is now full of rashes, every part of my body is so itchy. We was seated in 61A and 61C, seems like in the previous flight a dog was sitting there or some kind of animal that left fleas in the sit."
Cons: "Please clean better the seats. This is unacceptable, not a good way to start a trip in Japan. We only hope to get better sitting in our last flight with SQ, from Japan to LA."
Pros: "crew were very friendly and helpful. flight was one of the best i’ve had"
Cons: "boarding at sydney was very confusing"
Pros: "Comfort n clean"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no leg room, horrible food, stupid COLD snack!"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly, crew extremely curtious and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was an older model and I did not have strength to recline seat. Quality of seat back screens poor and hand sets difficult to navigate for a technophobe like Ma."
Cons: "Food could have been better."
Pros: "More space then previous flights. Attendants very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Ran out of the food choices by the time they reached me. Had to make do with what was left."
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was great, lots of movie selections"

Pros: "Easy red eye flight, just slept the whole way"
Cons: "Singapore airline is always awesome. Crew professional and very caring"

Pros: "more room in the seats - excellent hostesses who are so friendly and helpful - lovely food."
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff. plane 777 business class seat comfortable, and flat bed, once you figured out how to operate it was also comfortable. Food was good but not excellent compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Singapore Airlines business class lounge in Melbourne was less than impressive and the food was atrocious. Lounge in Singapore was large but still overcrowded. Amenities much better and the food was plentiful and interesting."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, punctual, helpful crew."
Cons: "I don't see the point in giving out menus for economy class, especially as it's only a choice of 2 meals and one of them wasn't available anyway. It's a waste of paper."
Pros: "Spacious economy class seating and great service"
Pros: "Flight crew, food, boarding and entertainment great."
Cons: "Just didn't like the 7 hour delay for the flight. Nobody's fault."
Pros: "The trip was uneventful, with the usual excellent service."
Cons: "There was on flight attendance which I assume new. She was not able to manage to check with her colleagues whether there was still a food which I requested before giving me the answer. Also, to me little things like fold the cup holder before take off and landing is just a simple task to do without giving a lecture to the passenger when he or she might be tight up with kids."
Pros: "Singapore airline crew is always top notch in terms of service and attentiveness. It's a direct flight from Singapore to Canberra! Beats the layover in Sydney or Melbourne."
Cons: "Business class seats were uncomfortable compared to other business class. They're not lay flat seats, and I can't get the seat even close to flat because my feet jam in to the bottom of the seat in front of me. The food wasn't great, some of the meal which was supposed to be served hot was still cold."
Pros: "Great entertainment system for a short haul fl flight"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Cons: "Old plane. Worst food I’ve ever had on a Singapore airlines flight. They need to give up on the seafood spaghetti. It was quite awful. Old plane so entertainment system not up to what is expected these days"
Pros: "The staff were so friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Fantastic flight attendants never needed anything just a 1st class job definitely a 5 star airline thanks for everything"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Natalie is a friendly cheery diligent flight attendant who needs special mention. (Sigapore to Brusane fight 6.1.18)"
Cons: "Too salty Hindu non veg meal"
Pros: "Great they are now flying Canberra to Singapore. Judging by our full flight it is very popular also!"
Pros: "Safe smooth flight. Timely take off and arrival. Great personalised service. Consistently high service standard is well appreciated."
Pros: "Can't think of. We have been using Singapore Air for years and they were good. However, our recent few flights with them have been disappointing (hence the need for this review) - there's nothing to be happy about."
Cons: "Writing on behalf of my wife. All staff that she met have sour face, perhaps to signal the passengers not to approach them? True enough, the cabin crew did not help her to place her bag in the luggage compartment; the cabin crew did not serve water when requested, and on second attempt, the cabin crew told her to request at the ground. The cabin crews she has encountered clearly expressed their unwillingness to serve with their face and action. Is this the new direction of Singaore Air? The entertainment system requires installation of an app, hence is practically useless since we do not have the app preinstalled in our device."
Pros: "evening meal was delicious"
Cons: "breakfast was terrible, and not properly heated, risky food handling not acceptable."
Pros: "the selection was impresive to m"
Pros: "Overall just a really great experience."
Cons: "Nothing negative to report."
Pros: "clean aircraft and friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, average meals, poor infotainment selection"
Pros: "The comfort and food plus drinks."
Cons: "Delay in food distribution, over waiting because of many people but only twogroups of serving crew"
Pros: "Attendants are always nice, flight is always smooth."
Pros: "No fuss flight but lacking that something extra"
Cons: "Singapore Airlines always boast themselves as first class service. That is just bs. At night when I was hungry, I asked the flight attendant for some snack, both a male and a female served at my cabin said, "we don't have that." I expected SQ staff to serve one step further, instead of stopping at a no. Can't you recommend something? Throughout the entire trip, whenever I asked something, the way they answered always made me feel that I was a trouble to them. Is it because I was in an economy class and that's how you treat me? SQ, you may want to change what you are proud of. It's no longer a first class service, at least not to us poor economy class passengers."
Pros: "again, the crew anticipated our needs"
Cons: "Plane was delayed and no apologies were made. We had to rush to our connecting flight."
Pros: "everything great, every time again"
Pros: "1. Clean. 2. Punctual. 3. Coke Zero."
Pros: "Good crew, but working with some tired, old equipment."
Cons: "The padding in my seat seemed to be a bit thin and became progressively more uncomfortable as the flight progressed. The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and constantly moving through the cabin with drinks and snacks (outside of meal times)"
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment systems are really showing some wear & tear. The screen was blurry, the letters on the control buttons had work off and the sound quality was terrible."
Pros: "Customer service , crew was nice"
Cons: "Food was terrible out of MEL.. Didn't have any choice at all.. Tasteless , should improve"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Blankets and pillows were ample and already at the seat."
Cons: "Food was worse than what I had come to expect from Cathay Pacific. Drinks were less frequent. Restroom facilities were not well kept over the course of the flight."
Cons: "Food was below average"
Pros: "The departure and arrival times were good in order to sleep the night, and wake up in Tokyo refreshed. Cabin crew were fairly friendly, but not the Cathay of a few years ago."
Cons: "NONE of the business class center seats would recline. This meant in order to recline and get some rest, the crew had to dismantle your seat and release the locks manually. This meant the seat was in that position until time to land. So I had to make a choice to sleep or eat, horrible for CX."
Pros: "Professional and friendly Crew & the movies"
Cons: "Too cold, seats to narrow, food not so tasty."
Cons: "Airplane was extremely hot, service was poor"
Pros: "CX crews are professional as they are very customer oriented"
Cons: "The ground services in Melbourne airport was really bad! Chaotic arrangements for boarding and especially unpleasant staffs!"
Pros: "Easy check in and bag drop, staff available when help was needed. Felt comfortable enough to check myself in as every part of precessions was made clear"
Pros: "not too bad"
Cons: "not too bad"
Pros: "Crew on leg from Melbourne to Hong Kong terrible - Hong Kong to Boston good"
Cons: "Put a Priority tag on our luggage; Have the Pasta meal for someone sitting in the second row of Premium Economy and then let me eat the economy meal that you substituted instead of interrupting me four times to give me the Premium Economy meal that you said you didn't have. Use a plane other than th"
Cons: "Did not inform us of a flight delay until way after the flight time had past. Waited an extra to take off."
Cons: "I didn’t have a pillow."
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."
Cons: "The seat was a bit small for me, legroom a bit tight."
Cons: "Too salty for the meal"
Cons: "Everything is fine"
Pros: "The movie selection + the crew was friendly."
Cons: "There were kids who were not well behaved. Their parents would not correct them, neither did the crew. There was a kid screaming and talking very loud behind me, while everyone was sleeping. I was unable to sleep on the flight, even with ear plugs. The kid sitting next to me was getting Play-doh everywhere, on me, the floor and all over the seats. He was also kicking the seat in front of him and his mother would not correct him. It would be helpful for the crew to say something to the parents, as some parents do not believe in discipline. The vegan food was very good on the flight to Hong Kong, but on the flight to Chicago it was bland. I was still very hungry after eating + did not get protein in the first meal. With the seat in front of me reclined all the way back, my knees were touching the back of the seat, my legs were swollen and in a lot of pain after the flight."
Pros: "Very courteous and helpful with handicapped people like my mom."
Cons: "I can’t find a number to call to report an item left on the plane, and I would seriously pay a couple hundred extra dollars to any airline that offered a child-free flight."
Pros: "I traveled economy coming home and was delighted by the amenities that you never see on commercial airlines anymore. On the way to New York I upgraded to premium economy, This was such a nice experience. It was worth the up charge. And two free checked bags? That is unheard of anymore"
Cons: "When I was on the upgraded ticket, I was actually disappointed that we landed early because I was sleeping so well."
Pros: "Little more leg room!"
Cons: "I didn't like their foods specially fish & chicken made me nausea"
Cons: "Incoming plane was late so that there off departure schedule. Flight to HK was late as well. Bad luck or bad scheduling?"
Pros: "Not much, quick though"
Cons: "Plane is old, seats are terrible, hard awkward, strange seatbelt clunk of foam plastic, food was horrible, never saw the crew, it was hot, needed water has to go track it down, it was an overnight flight so not all the crews fault"
Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."
Pros: "Great crew, great service"
Cons: "Could use a greater reclining angle in economy."
Pros: "The crew were very polite, efficient and attentive."
Cons: "On the first leg of our journey the seats were very difficult to adjust. We required the help of the attendants."
Pros: "The airline crew. Very attentive and immaculate"
Pros: "Left earlier than expected and accomedations with movies and food was great"
Cons: "They were limited with certain meals"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. There were two service representatives to take me on the golf cart from my gate in Terminal 1 when I landed to the bus departing from Terminal 2 to Terminal 4 where my connection was. It was unexpected, but saved a lot of stress based on the distance I had to travel within the airport to make the connecting flight."
Cons: "They recently moved the Cathay Pacific flights to the new Terminal 4 in Changi in Singapore. The connecting distance was significant to get from the Terminal 1 gate to the bus leaving from Terminal 2 to get to Terminal 4. Changi is usually VERY efficient, but this was a real inconvenience to not have direct transport from T1 to T4. Also, the lines for Cathay are not properly sorted by First/Business and all status frequent flyers. There were no ropes or anything organizing the queue, so there were well over 150 people lined up for the priority boarding with no clear queue. At that point, there is no priority. Time to get better organized."
Pros: "that is great flight. I'm very with fight"
Cons: "tiket issuing time some has mistake than we want to change very big problem, that take a hour and hour."
Pros: "Cathy service"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"
Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"
Cons: "We were late leaving HK but that is all. Minor in overall scheme of the journey."
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Cathay Pacific needs to work on improving their cabin layout for B777. The inside is quite outdated."
Pros: "Good leg room in coach. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "All as expected - no surprises"
Pros: "They gave 250 ml bottle water each on breakfast and dinner I like that . The crew members were helpful and friendly"
Cons: "There was less choice of movie. It would be good if they add more Bollywood movies and movies with more than 4 rankings."
Pros: "The plane actually arrived an hour earlier than expected."
Pros: "Access to Cathay lounge. Went to the Wing noodle bar and coffee loft. Had a good bite to eat before boarding flight running 15 mins late. My request to have my meal service delayed was welcomed by staf."
Cons: "None experienced"
Pros: "The service and quality are absolutely OK, the airline is awesome!"
Pros: "Great crew, quick boarding"
Cons: "After a stressful 15 hour flight from San Francisco, my connecting flight to Tokyo was delayed by an hour and a half, which is something I'd like to avoid in this long of a flight."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "seat did not recline."
Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"
Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Bag drop in Melbourne was poor - it took close to an hour just to drop bags. Flight was very busy. While food/drink was good, it did take quite a while to be served."
Cons: "The headphones did not work."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Economy's seats a bit tightly packed in. Food was kind of Asian based and no choices for snacks but the Asian type nuts/pretzels that tastes wired"
Pros: "having the access to a direct flight to the Philippines."
Cons: "enforcing rules and regulations too passengers. as a person of purchasing additional leg room, this should be enforced to pay for additional leg room vs just giving that additional space for free. This is the second time I experienced and this has not changed since last year."
Pros: "You ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "Since I booked the flight last minute and I needed a special meal, there was no option to book one. It helps if there are such meals reserved for last minute bookings"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight was timely."
Cons: "Food was bland and small. No TVs in seats only on phones. Little leg room. Customer service in Manila was horrible. They told us to transfer to a different location for lounge access then we were denied after we paid for it. They didn’t do anything to correct the mistake. Very unfortunate despite speaking to many managers."
Pros: "The food improved compare from last year but during the 16 hours and 40 minutes flight the crew should have come out and ask the passenger or offer some drinks. They only came out when then they serve the meals. It’s a long travel, they should have checks the passengers if they needed anythin"
Cons: "Checking in your luggage take too long. The staff specially the Manila, seems not well train because they keep going to each other and discuss things or asked the other crew what to do. I started checking in at 4:08 pm and I finished past 6:00. Crews should checks the passengers every now and the"
Cons: "It’s a complete torture to be in transit at Manila airport.a large number of Passengers are kept hostage in a small room with a capacity of about 40 persons. Passport and boarding passes are taken away by the airline ground staff. Good airline but worst staff at airport. A lot to be said. TORTURE"
Pros: "It was a very good flight and on time. The food was very authentic and tasty!"
Cons: "The airport need to expand the number of runways. Always late leaving or arriving because they can't handle the traffic and especially in bad weather."
Pros: "Service food comfort.."
Cons: "Beyond our control it was a bit torbulent over Jap an for almost 2 hours but asido from that my trip was perfect!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Crew must smile and speak to passengers...poor body language. Waiting for our luggage in the conveyor and give to the guys for them to put a tag for transfer flight to London. If it is connecting flight, passenger should get their luggage in their final airport of destination. Causing delay, because we still have to queve in the immigration. Don't see the point in that."

Pros: "Most everything was very good expierence. Entertainment selection is excellent. Crew was friendly and full of energy. Plane was pristinely clean."
Cons: "I see a comment about letting people board when it wasn't their turn. This did happen a little and it is shameful more of the people that think they can get away with it. Eventually, the ground crew did start yelling and organizing people, which helped correct the situation. I do think that all people should be kicked back to the end of the line for not following the procedure. Food was only okay (Fish in shrimp sauce)."
Cons: "Seemed very crammed seat-wise. There was was no entertainment system system so one star is stretching it."

Plane was newer with entertainment module with a huge list of movies and shows to choose from. food was the best airplane meal I had ever had. Had no issues during baggage or boarding,"
Cons: "Only thing I didn't like was that checking in online was impossible because I was booked from another airline (air Canada). I wish they could co-ordinate to make online booking available even though we were booked through another airline just so we had a better choice for our seats."

They also offer free in flight wifi, but that didn't really work too well for us. Not sure if that has to do with our carrier."

Cons: "It was fine."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a really long time. They should have sent people to hotels or cancelled flight. Delay too long (especially for elderly and children)"
Pros: "On our return flight from Narita to Manila there was this family with 3 little kids and seating directly in front of us , the little girl cried the entire flight of 4 hours every 10 seconds and the mom didn't do anything to calm her , even wearing a headset I can hear the girl crying. The crew should have done something to seat them at the end but they were seated in the middle. Was so annoyed ! Flight attendant were slow taking our empty food tray. 1/2 hour later or more before they finally take it. No addt'l crew to give drinks after the meal."
Cons: "To small and old seats. I am so tiny already but I can bump my elbow to next person seating. No leg room."
Pros: "Budget airlines that flies through Manila."
Cons: "I was not allowed to carry on my guitar, despite it being short enough and there being plenty of room in the overhead bins. I was told that this is the official policy, but there is nothing written on the website about a no carry-on-guitar policy or in the emails for my e-ticket. If I had known, I would have come prepared or flown another airline."
