Couldn't see a dedicated thread for this... My question to the brains trust: Is it worth flying from CTS-NRT with anyone else bar JAL/ANA (e.g. to connect with NRT-MEL flight home, I'm thinking no)? Specifically those two offer an 'explore Japan' or similar pass for JPY10,000 one-way. On the CTS-NRT route (could be moot after March as many int'l flights to Aus swapping to HND) there looks to be 5 airlines that operate: ANA JAL SPRING PEACH CRAPSTAR Anyone succeeded with Spring or Peach? Anything else to consider (e.g. booking JAL CTS-MEL on one ticket to avoid having to claim bag and re-check it at NRT)?
