  1. For Canadians visiting Japan these proposed timings make absolutely no sense!

    Arriving passengers in Haneda won't be able to check into hotels until about 2am!

    Departing passengers from Haneda would be checking out of hotels 12 hours before flight time or paying for an extra day.

    Either ways the new flights can't compete with the timings of AC1/2, AC3/4, AC9/10 in Narita.
