... on what the problem was. Then 10 minutes later deciding they were ok and with no explanation just left...
So we finally took off and the flight was just horrible in general. Staff weren't helpful and didn't give us the right immigration form, people were shouting at each other and rude, babies nappies were being changed next to us, there was a constant queue for the toilet and there were no head rest TV's!!!

... my bag to find my handy dandy pocket translator. In very broken Japanese, I chimed "I paid online" and "Thank you very much for your help!" She just smiled, nodded, and said "You're welcome" in Japanese after we printed out my ticket. It was about 8 am and I was starving, so I looked through my pocket book and asked her if I could get soba for breakfast. It was cold and rainy, and I needed something warm and brothy.
