After arriving in Tokyo, we headed straight for the Sakura lounge. There are two separate Sakura lounges in Terminal 2 of Narita International Airport: one in the main building, and one in the satellite building. Our flight to Singapore was leaving from the satellite terminal building, so we decided to go to that one since our layover wasn’t that long. It was a smaller lounge and also lacked the shower facilities.
On the morning of our trip, we wheeled seven pieces of luggage out to the taxi, bound for the airport. For a travelling party of three, I thought seven bags was a bit ridiculous, but oh well. The check-in counters opened at 10am for our 1pm flight, so I had booked a taxi for 9:30am. I had hoped to maximize the amount of time we could spend at Cathay Pacific’s new lounge in Vancouver.
