It was the first time I had stepped into an international flight lounge run by airline companies. I had used the ANA(Japan-based Airline) lounge for domestic flights once, but that AC lounge was far above it. Over having light meals and alcoholic drinks, I enjoyed a TV program of the London Olympic Games. I spent about three hours there, wondering if the flight was delayed further, and I must have been seriously drunk. I had to kill an hour even after boarding. During torrential rain, all the services like fueling up, loading up and supplying food and amenities were suspended on all flights, which was why I had to spend an additional hour before taking off. Some canned beers and snacks were served during this time. When the plane moved to cruising from ascending, I saw how the seat worked and was surprised to see it become perfectly flat. I told an attendant not to wake me up even at dinner time, and slept. Perhaps with the efficacy of alcohol, I had a good sleep and when I woke up, dinner was served. It was a really luxurious experience.
When I arrived at Narita, I was really full of energy, so I successfully got through the baggage claim, customs, and passport control as I had intended, and received a hotel coupon and 3000 yen for supper from Air Canada. Together with the last trip, the total of three hotel coupons and five meal coupons were offered from Air Canda this year.
