8 hours on a JAL 744 jet and I feel surprisingly fresh. I'm sure the free booze and entire row of seats for me to sprawl out on helped. Three seats for the kid means two extra pillows and two extra blankets, in which case I had no choice but to drink for three as well. Now I’m in Tokyo awaiting my flight to Denpasar. As the gate is starting to fill up with passengers I'm getting the feeling that my spacious seating arrangements are over and it will be back to the usual arm rest elbow dance.
