Disembarking Photo with ANA CAs

This photo must show how much I enjoyed the flight from Los Angels to Tokyo Narita with ANA Cabin Attendants!


I heard they only knew I am a frequent flyer with ANA Superflyer status holder and I am visually impaired, not knowing I am completely blind and no sense of light, so all the services they provided was not in the manual but they try to figure out what they can do for me.

I talked with them for long time, probably more than half an hour about my echolocation and perceptual mobility training in Long Beach California as the first Japanese man.

They told me they were moved by my story, and they could see I am enjoying the flight and showing the confidence towards my fore coming recovery processes in Japan, despite of my disability.


I surely can say even a completely blind man can enjoy flying with ANA, especially with fine crew like them!
