Dreamliner to Chicago

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Tokyo to Chicago 

The final leg of our journey home from Southeast Asia was on American Airlines from Tokyo. We were booked in aisles seats across from each other. Fortunately, the plane wasn't full and the flight attendants re-seated passengers, so that they had empty seats between them. While the Boeing 787 is a beautiful airplane, if it were at full capacity, those in economy class wouldn't have an enjoyable flight for a long journey like Tokyo to Chicago.

Lunch is Served

Rice crackers and beverages were served about an hour into our flight.  We had taken off at 6:15 PM Tokyo time.

Two hours into our flight home we were served lunch.  Our selection was pork with mashed potatoes and vegetables.  Perhaps the strangest thing about flying to and from Southeast Asia is adjusting to the odd meal times.   Normally at this time we would be eating breakfast. Our next meal in a few hours was breakfast (see album).

Home Sweet Home

Nineteen days had passed since we departed for Southeast Asia.   We had a marvelous time exploring new sights, learning about the culture, and eating the food, but it was time to be home.

As the saying goes "There's no place like home".  Our flight path took us over Lake Michigan where we could see the Chicago skyline.  It was a beautiful day in the city; despite it being in the middle of the winter.

We hope that you've enjoyed these highlights of our journey to Southeast Asia.   There are a few more posts that we will add over time, mainly about the ship and our time onboard.  If you have any questions or comments, we'd love to hear from you.

We encourage you to go out of your comfort zone when selecting your next winter vacation - explore other parts of the world beyond the Caribbean. It's time to deplane our Dreamliner 787 - here are some dream seats - if you really want to splurge, upgrade your class of service when you fly.
