Premium Lounge Access at Narita Airport

Hello all.

I will have a layover at NRT and will be flying business on JAL.

As of now the Sakura Lounge is closed but according to the website:

"As we have reopened JAL First Class Lounge in Haneda and Narita International Airport since July 1, 2020, please be noted the open hour of the lounge in February, March, 2021 varies by day. For those who are eligible for only Sakura Lounge is temporarily accessible to JAL First Class Lounge."

Has anyone been able to access the first class lounge on a business class ticket?

Thanks in advance.

As I read a report in Japanese by someone who JL business class in Jan;

First class lounge was (probably is) accessible by Sakura lounge pax.

Opening hours vary by the flight of the date.

Seats are half permitted to use for social distancing.

The language you quoted is from the official JAL website. Therefore, you should be granted access to the JAL First Lounge without issues. Note that at present, the policy lasts until March 31, 2021 only (so just 3 days left). It seems very likely that an extension to grant temporary access to business class passengers should happen. Just make sure you go back to the website to check.
