Book directly with Solaseed, not ANA or other. They have a plan for customers that are not living in Japan (have other passport) that can save a lot of money for you.Have not flown yet, actually, but wanted to let you all know.

Solaseed is within the ANA group, so the quality of the service is basically the same. No extra charges for seating or baggage. The price is only slightly lower than the major carriers, but the cancellation period is longer. I would think for these short flights, these carriers are fine (they are code-shared with ANA anyway).

when all three main carriers had cancelled two full days of flights due to a typhoon NOT in our area (neither departure nor arrival city) we were most grateful just to get a flight out in time for our international connection - delighted that our zero expectations were proved incorrect, a superb experience, good flight, even offered a drink and...

ANA put me on Solaseed Air after my later ANA flight became severely delayed, and I would have otherwise missed my connection back to Toronto. Overall, a VERY pleasant surprise. I'll admit I cringed a bit when I was directed to this flight instead of the nicer looking ANA 787 at the gate next door, but as I was getting...

Booking online from the UK was straightforward and the check-in at Nagasaki airport was efficient. The flight was very comfortable with plenty of leg-room.

Flying with Solaseed air:- It was my first time using the Solaseed air travel to Kagoshima, Kyushu Island. As usual, flight attendants welcomed passenger at the entrance and assisted passenger boarding flight. The way of welcoming passenger comparable with 4/5 stars airlines, or I can say better than 4/5 stars airlines. The elements of welcoming passenger (smile, face reaction, tone...

This was a handy direct flight from Naha to Kagoshima operated by Solaseed for ANA. We booked it with difficulty online - it was one of the strangest booking systems we'd encountered. The views on take off from Naha and just before you land at Kagoshima are lovely so a window seat is worthwhile. The aircraft's colour scheme is lime...
