Review: ANA Lounge, Satellite 5 Terminal 1 Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT)

Summer Trip Flying EVA Air Business Class on 777 & Hello Kitty Jet, Singapore Airlines Suites & Cathay Pacific First Class

Last summer, I travelled to the Philippines for the 70th birthday celebration of my father. It was a very short visit since I needed to be back home for work. I've always wanted to try EVA Air's Hello Kitty Jet so I booked my flight from Stockholm to Fukuoka using Avianca Lifemiles. From Fukuoka, I flew on a budget carrier to Tokyo, and from Tokyo I flew on Singapore Airlines Suites to Singapore, and then first class to Manila using my Kris Flyer Miles. On my way back to Stockholm, I flew on Cathay Pacific First Class and Finnair Business Class using my AA Advantage Miles. This trip allowed me to test EVA Air Hello Kitty, Singapore Suites and Cathay Pacfic First Class all for the first time and I couldn't be more satisfied.

CONCLUSION

Having visited the other business class lounges in Tokyo Narita Airport including the ANA Lounge in Satellite 4 and the JAL Sakura Lounge in Terminal 2, I thought this lounge was fairly nice. The food selection on the buffet was very good and the bar had good offerings as well. There was also complimentary wifi inside the lounge. This lounge is definitely much bigger than the ANA Suite Lounge on the opposite side as there are more guests who have access to this lounge although it didn't get busy during the time I was there. I thought the United Club located in Satellite 3 is much nicer although that is just my personal opinion. Of course, the friendliness of the staff was there as always. Overall, a nice lounge to visit if you have access and if you have a flight departing from Satellite 5.
