Once I arrived at the airport, I went to the First Class check-in area. At the entrance, there was a Thai employee who made sure that I was a First Class passenger. He then invited me to take a seat and enjoy some sort of cold tea while he checked me in for the flight.

After handing me my boarding pass and passport, he walked me to the priority immigration line which was empty. From there, he walked me to an escalator that took us to the Business Class lounge. At the bottom of the escalator there was another Thai employee with a golf cart. The other employee with the golf cart then drove me to the First Class Lounge. It was an interesting experience because everyone in the Business Class lounge was staring at me while we drove though the lounge…

Once we got to the lounge, I requested a one-hour full-body massage at 7AM since it’s complimentary for First Class passengers. I also requested to get a private room if available. Fortunately, not many people were in the lounge, so I got my own private room! While getting settled in the room, a lounge attendant asked if I would like anything to drink or eat. Since I didn’t eat breakfast, I asked for some shrimp wontons, pad thai, and coffee.

After breakfast, a lounge attendant told me it was time for my massage, so she walked me to the spa which is located across from the First Class Lounge. I was then asked to take a seat in a room for a few minutes. After a minute or two, my masseuse came to the room and welcomed me to the spa while leading me to a private room.

The massage was fantastic and it’s such an awesome service for an airline to have for their premium class passengers. Just so you know, Business Class passengers get a thirty minute back or foot massage. However, not many airlines offer this type of complimentary service in their lounge!

After the massage, I was told to head back to the First Class Lounge. When I got back to the lounge, the lounge attendants informed me that all the private rooms were occupied. I didn’t mind since my flight was going to begin boarding in half an hour. When boarding was about to start, a lounge attendant escorted me to a private van since the plane was leaving from a remote gate.

Once I boarded the aircraft, the flight attendants welcomed me aboard and asked if I would like a pre-departure drink. As a true FlyerTalker, I requested a glass of champagne and was brought a glass of Veuve Clicquot Rose. Since I knew Thai served Dom Perignon, I asked if they had any Dom Perignon, the flight attendant assured me they had plenty and he would open the bottles once the plane got to cruising altitude. Nice!

Once we got to cruising altitude, the flight attendant brought me a glass of Dom Perignon and the menu. For breakfast, I ordered a crepe dish that didn’t taste good. At that moment, I regretted not pre-ordering a meal. Thankfully, they served bread, fruit, and cereal before the crepe!

After breakfast, I decided to watch a movie then take a nap since the flight from Bangkok to Tokyo is surprisingly long. While watching a movie, the flight attendant asked if I would a seafood noodle dish that he prepared. Since it didn’t sound appetizing, I declined and took a nap. An hour or so later, I woke up and was told that we were approaching Narita Airport and would be arriving at the airport soon. Upon arrival at the airport, I cleared immigration and got my checked bags in about twenty minutes. From there, I went to the shuttle bus area since the Hilton Narita Airport provides free shuttle service.
