My Delta Million Miler flight – Final thoughts of reaching one million miles with Delta Air Lines
One of the things I was told I had to do before my flight home was to visit the Narita NRT outside observation deck. I am happy I did and it helps when it is a glorious day outside to sit and enjoy jets taking off and landing.
As you can see from the above map it is located in Terminal 1 between the north and south connector. Find the escalators and walk straight ahead. Do pay attention to the fact that this is land side, that is, PRE security so you can only visit either after you land and enter Japan or before you depart.
If you go left you may pass some giant sized bobble head dolls outside a store on the way. Just too funny from my western perspective.
Depending on what time of the year you visit it, the deck opens at either 6:30 or 7:AM and closes each day at 9:PM.
The deck is expansive and when we were there early in the morning there was almost no one on the deck. We were also there so early there were few jets landing and taking off but we got to enjoy more plane spotting later on in the Sky Club that I will review soon.
But it really is all about the view. For security reasons there is tall metal fencing that does take away from the view a bit when you sit back on the deck.
But much less so when you get up close and enjoy the sights of the airport. I love being outside and feeling a part of the airport. This is one of the reasons the Delta Sky Decks are such a fantastic idea and I am happy they are adding more of these (and hope they add more at other airports as well).
Next up, right next door to the observation deck, a review of the IASS Priority Pass lounge. It may be the most disappointing lounge I have ever visited. – René
