  • Good
  • Really near the city.
  • ANA check-in counter staff level is too low. Had G mail registration of passengers on ANA's service automatically sent check-in mail, but that passengers had to tickets cannot be issued. It is said. I was a personal trip to Italy via Germany from Haneda. Once out of passenger tickets are not issued to Germany, after arriving in Germany, individuals with procedures at the check-in counter or the automatic ticket machines. Said baggage was received from Italy. And the only treatment for checked baggage at Haneda boarding gate in Germany connecting once pick up luggage, customs officials have checked the suitcase where a scattered people and their luggage and check out. And was curious about. I how much both Germany and Italy in the EU domestic line treatment will be? And even Germany and Italy is a totally different country. Do you understand? Repeated and did deal with it. And in the middle is two people system in this settlement. Songshan Airport had traveled with bated abduction does not open at the airport in the country and for the time being going to Haneda. For Haneda International flights for the first time in the shop and was looking forward to all ferries not only for checked baggage at boarding gate, get hearing all of the interactions in the Songshan Airport has been issued a ticket from us and confirmation. At Songshan Airport was wrong information. And the staff of Haneda's was suberb. I have successfully issued tickets to Italy, was told by the Songshan Airport for baggage. And a guide to state-of-the-ordinary. Overseas tourists also come Ken and I think anger is ashamed and miserable staff level too.
