Default Possible to Buy ANA 77W Models in Tokyo?

Hey all,

I know ANA models are in general very elusive to find. Will be flying SFO-PEK on ANA's 777-300ER (in C/J! ) on Sunday and will will have a stopover in NRT on the way back.

I'm wiling to pay a fair bit...are there any stores in Tokyo which may have it in stock?

Thanks!

In NRT or HND have ANA Festa shops. You should be able to find it there. Not the best prices though.

Could you elaborate more? I've walked around most of Terminal 1 at NRT and have never seen it. There's just the large Nakamise duty free stretch. Where is it in relation to the UA or NH lounges?

Thanks!

Not speaking Japanese I'm not sure how I found this - started out at the ANA Festa site.

Is this thing a radio? It looks like it could be rather cool:

Shops in both NRT terminals are outside of customs and the selection is very limited. HND has a great shop in terminal 1(JAL). Lots of ANA.

If you go to Haneda, only go to Terminal 1 (or whichever is JAL's terminal). It has both Blue Sky (JAL) and ANA Fiesta (ANA) located close to each other, and both stores carry models. Prices ain't cheap though.

How long is your stopover...you may be held in a sterile transient floor or lounge area and not be able to leave that area...doing so means you would have to claim your luggage and clear customs only to recheck them back in again...

There is an ANA store in terminal one at Narita but the selection is very limited and it is in an area outside of customs which is not where you would be..Its on the 3rd or 4th floor but the selection is limited

If you do clear customs and leave the airport then StarAllianceFlyers suggestion makes the best sense...It would be a lot easier to catch an airport bus running between the 2 airports, to Haneda terminal 1.You can knock out both stores in one shot almost within eyeshot of each other then trying to go downtown and navigate that whole mess.....The Tokyo stores are sometimes an hour apart or more depending on time of day and the sales help speak little or no english at all...Unless you have a guide to lead you that option is almost impossible...Ive done it dozens of times.....Fortunately the owners of Crosswings and Gulliver usually pick me up at the train station so I am lucky!!!!!

Thanks guys. I'm sitting in the lounge at NRT right now and have to hop on my flight to PEK in a few minutes. I have a 4 hour layover on my way back on Friday so I'll probably clear customs and check out the shop here. I don't think 4 hours is enough to clear immigration and customs, get to HND, shop and get back to NRT.

No...I think one way by bus it would take over 2 hrs. Even if you take the high speed train into Tokyo station, then the monorail to HND it would take just over an hour one way.

It's not a radio, when you push different buttons, it gives you different sounds like, engine starts, taxing / cruising, maximum throttle take off, etc...
