ANA’s (Useless?) Haneda First Class Lexus Transfer

All Nippon Airways has apparently had a private first class car transfer service at Haneda Airport that I was unfamiliar with, even though it has been around for years. But it seems kind of... useless? While some airlines offer chauffeur service to &…
