A different version of the known 4Aviation tours to Japan started at Schiphol on Saturday 18 October. This tour was prepared because some of our customers asked for it. The tour focused primarily on the fighter bases and we tried to spend two days at each base. It was one of three tours that 4Aviation organised to Japan in October/November 2014.
The tour started with a delay. The KLM flight from Amsterdam to Narita showed a delay on the screens. The 7 Dutch and 3 English participants could do nothing more than wait. When the delay was getting worse there was the need to do something though. The tour also included 5 domestic flights with Japan Airlines (JAL) and the first of these was scheduled for Sunday afternoon. The delay had now become this much that connecting to this first flight was becoming very difficult. So, time to call JAL. “Rebook ten passengers to a later flight tomorrow? Sure, we can do that, no problem”. Alright… that’s very good! And thus the flight to Narita by KLM Boeing 747 started.
