関西国際空港からロンドンへの旅立ち編♪

Travel to Kansai Airport by Airport Express Rapito UK Harry Potter travelWizard Pancake Man's first trip abroad! The destination is London, United Kingdom! So the time is 9am Japan time on Saturday 7 December 2019. I left my hideaway early in the morning and arrived at Kansai International Airport at 9am. I came to Kansai International Airport with plenty of time to spare because it was my first time boarding an international flight (laughs)... I travelled to Kansai Airport on the airport express Rapito... It was a comfortable ride... The seats are comfortable, you can leave your carry-on case in the luggage space and lock it... When I go abroad, I take the Rapito My wish to go to Kansai Airport was also realised today.

Electronic notice board at the exit of Kansai Airport Station, 'International Airlines Information'.

'International Airline Company Information' Kansai Airport, United Kingdom Harry Potter travel.

The plane I'm flying on is called.British Airways.'. Information monitor at the exit of Kansai Airport Station, 'International airlines Guide to using international airlines' shows that British Airways is in the South Terminal.

I went to the toilet before going to the international departure lobby on the 4th floor of Terminal 1 at Kansai International Airport. When I washed my hands, I noticed that my hands and fingers were dry and chapped, so I bought some Soft Nivea at a drugstore in the airport. I was glad I had bought it when I arrived in London. The air in London is several times drier than in Japan (according to my senses), and without Nivea, I would probably have become a bleeding person from the scab on my fingers and the rough skin on my joints (laughs).

United Kingdom.credit cardIn case you can't use your own money, you can exchange 20,000 yen worth at a foreign currency exchange office. I also found out for the first time that you can only exchange money for notes at the exchange office at Kanku Airport.

Then to the British Airways counter on the fourth floor.

British Airways counters have three separate entrances.

Britishi Airways counters Kansai Airport United Kingdom Harry Potter travel
  1. For Clob World members
  2. For Bag Drop customers
  3. For World Traveller guests

I use the BA app on my smartphone Xperia.Checked in onlineTherefore,Bag DropI queued up at the A few people are waiting. Incidentally, the general public who check in at the counter areWorld TravellerThe queues are quite long.

Check in online on the BA app and you'll also get a ticket.Smartphone screen (QR code)The following is a list of the most important things to do. I also bring one smartphone as a spare in case of emergency and also print it out on paper. If the need arises, I can also hold up the QR code on my laptop, so I have a four-level safety measure in place (how insecure are you? ←), after all, I'm travelling almost alone on the road. And I can only speak a few words of English (laughs).

Check luggage (large carry-on cases) at the Bag Drop counter.

Britishi Airways counters Kansai Airport United Kingdom Harry Potter travel

Checked luggage should be largemore than 100 litres (litres)(expandable to 105 litres/115 litres) Only one suitcase. In fact, in this 70L classIt also contains slightly smaller suitcases. In common parlance.Carry in CarryIt is... ♪ In any case, I have a lot of luggage to take with me. It includes a Dumbledore costume to dress up as for the Christmas dinner, a wand and wigs. This takes up the most bulk. And on the way home, I have a lot ofHarry Potter merchandise and souvenirsIt is also assumed that the purchase of

It varies from airline to airline, but on British AirwaysTwo pieces of checked baggageThe size and weight of cabin baggage, as well as the items that can be carried on board, are restricted up to a maximum of Checked baggage is limited to two large carry-on cases on British Airways flights from Kansai to London.

In order to bring my laptop on board, I also ordered an SDS from the computer manufacturer VAIO, printed it out and brought it with me. This is to prove the battery capacity to be taken on board. Depending on the PC, it is unnecessary if it is clearly indicated by a sticker on the bottom of the main body, etc., but because my VAIO-kun did not have any indication (;^_^A

I digress, but checking luggage was also a breeze - just hold up the QR code on your ticket with your smartphone and show your passport to the ground staff.

The next step is departure formalities. Security checks are carried out, and the laptop in your hand luggage bag is taken out of the bag and placed on a separate tray to be scanned. I myself passed through the body scanner and cleared without difficulty. The VAIO battery capacity check I was worried about was neither at the security check nor at the check-in counter. Hm? No check at all? (Laughter)

Once immigration formalities are over, you can simply relax in the duty-free area until boarding time. It is now 10:15 minutes. Departure is at 11:10, so it's enough to get to the boarding counter by 10:40, so I just hang out in the duty-free area.

This is where I had a problem,UNIQLO in duty-free areas.but whether to buy a sweatshirt and change from chinos. I have been on the plane for about 13 hours. It is better to look comfortable! However, I read in word of mouth that it is not a good idea to dress too informal, and I ended upin chinosI got on (laughs), but the more relaxed the other passengers, especially those who seemed to be regulars, the more relaxed their clothes were. I felt later that I should have bought a sweatshirt that didn't look like pyjamas and changed into it, www.

My attire and passport case at the point of boarding

USJ, 'Harry Potter Area'.of purchase atHogwarts hoodies.andPassport case with textbook design in Potions. I chose this one because I was looking forward to seeing the reaction of the person to whom I submitted my passport case (laugh), and if they reacted, they were definitely a Harry Potter fan! While I was playing with the photo taken in front of the BA aeroplane as a souvenir (laughs), the boarding process started and the boarding desk proceeded in order of priority number. There is an alphabet printed on your ticket that indicates your priority number. If you are using a smartphone, it is displayed on the ticket screen.

Seats are reserved in the last row of economy seats for a fee (extra charge).

Of course.chargeThe price was about ¥ 9,000. The outbound flight was found to be empty in advance, so I was able to have two seats all to myself for a seat reservation fee of approximately 9,000 yen. Blankets, earphones, etc. are available on the seats. For some reason, there were also blankets and earphones for the empty seat next to me.

The advantage of having this seat exclusively is that there is space between the window and the seat.Enough space for one person to stand.The space is located in the middle of the room. You can place your bag or stretch your legs in this space! Sometimes you can also stand up and relax your body by bending over (((o(*▽▽*)o))).

The plane took off from Kansai Airport at about 11:30 and immediately made a left turn, so you can see Kansai Airport. Until I got on the plane, I was not so nervous because the staff were all Japanese, but since there was only one Japanese staff on board, I gradually became more and more nervous. wCan you really travel to London without speaking English?The day I arrived, the only thing that kept me going was the peace of mind that I would be able to meet up with my fellow Harriotta fans (laughs).

I found out when I was planning my itinerary for a trip to London and measured the distance between Kansai Airport and Heathrow Airport on Google Earth for fun, and the shortest distance was shown over Russia.

Impressions of British Airways economy seats.

British Airways Economy Seat Impressions British Airways Kansai Airport United Kingdom Harry Potter Travel

  • Economy is more comfortable than expected! There was more legroom and the last row could be collapsed.
  • On British Airways, some seats have steel boxes and some do not, so those without have more legroom.
  • The aircraft I boarded had USB but no power socket. However, the USB is not charging at all. lol The icon is charging, but rather it's taking 40 minutes and it's down 1%. www.
  • The width of the seats is narrow. If you are the size of a pancake man, it might be a bit tight if someone of similar build comes alongside you. You have to squeeze your shoulders really tight. If there is no neighbour, it is comfortable.

Since the flight took off from Kansai International Airport at 11:30 and landed at London Heathrow Airport at 23:30,Approx. 12 hours.on board the aircraft.

The journey took about 12 hours on a direct British Airways flight. What do you think? Did you feel like you were travelling?
