Japan Week launched today in New York City with exhibition halls in Grand Central Station featuring a Delta 747-400 Business Elite seat with pilot tuck-in service, swag, and a contest for a trip for two, in economy, to Japan.

I saw the press release and decided to pop up during my lunch hour, coinciding with the kick-off event. There are numerous booths from featuring Japanese companies, food (no free samples) and tourism.

Delta had quite a crew out there, including 6’5″ Tyler, familiar to regular passengers on the JFK-NRT route for his superlative Japanese language skills.

@Joey – the swag giveaway seemed a bit haphazard, I don’t think they would give out amenity kits to everyone, most booths had nothing for free, like the food ones all require cash. I did ask for an USB hub and will do a blog giveaway on it.

I recall you telling us you have status with Delta. Did they give you any of the swag in from the drawers?

@Points, Miles & Martinis – they will be there through Saturday, I am not sure how big a crew they will have, I happened to show up for the kick-off with the press buzzing around so they have a lot of Delta people around.

Looks like they couldn’t find the 2015 Award Chart either!
