JAL Sakura Lounge/AA Admirals Club
the JAL Sakura Lounge/AA Admirals Club where I had a wonderful dinner. I left the lounge about 9:30pm for the scheduled 9:40pm boarding.
Boarding, Gate 18
From the movie selection, I watched "Borg vs Mc Enroe" which I thought was a very nice film.
Minutes after settling in, an announcement was made that the flight is full. Moments later, the captain came on the PA to welcomes us onboard and to give us flight information including our flight time of 4 hours and 44 minutes. Around 10:14pm, headphones were offered although I declined, which was followed by bottles of mineral water.

Around 10:46pm, the flight attendants started taking meal and drinks order. There was a choice between fruit and cheese or cold cuts and I chose the former. For my drinks, I settled for a glass of apple juice.
Around 5:50am Los Angeles time, the captain came on the PA to inform us that we would start our descent soon and that we would be landing in LAX at 6:15am which was way ahead of schedule 👍 Four minutes later, the seat belt sign was turned on.
Landing at LAX
I loved the fact that the JAL Sakura Lounge had a nice food offering and I was able to enjoy some really nice food including some miso soup 😋 The snacks offered on board was not a lot but just perfect to enjoy before "going to sleep". I was actually able to sleep well (thanks to the comfortable seats) and woke up minutes before we started our descent. The crew on this flight were friendly and overall, I'd fly AA again when given the chance to fly between Honolulu and Los Angeles in business class.
