Details on the flights to Japan.

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

Now that we’re back from the first full day (I’ll post that separately) and actually awake, here’s the details on our adventure on getting here. First off, at one point I pulled out my laptop and even without internet typed up a paragraph while waiting for one of our planes:


We’re finally here

After a few hiccups I’m sending this to you from Tokyo, Japan! Details forthcoming when I’m not really tired.

Everything is in place…

Everything is setup and good to go.  I’m all packed up, we figured out how we’re going to meet up with each other at Chicago, everything is as planned as it can be.

As a little side note, I’m going to change the posting timezone so it’s set to Japan time.  So posts are going to actually happen 14 hours ahead of EST.  Also changing the category to ‘in japan’ so it’s a little more clear.  Also I decided to change the date of the countdown to the expected time of arrival in Japan, as I guess that’s when it should officially start.

Flight Details for arrival

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

I’m only going to mention the flight from Chicago to Japan since the other flights are just little ‘hops’ to Chicago. It’s going to be American Airlines flight 153. Flight Aware’s tracking looks decent (and I can direct link to the flight) but the image may not work since it’s an international flight, but will still show where we’re at. You can also try tracking it on FlyteComm. Or any site should show it with the flight identifier AAL153.  Flight leaves at 12:40pm local time, or 1:40pm EST.
