Re: Why did DL/UA cut NRT-JFK-NRT?

Delta never made a dime in JFK-TYO. And, judging by the capacity offered by JAL and ANA, they don't make much either. "Prestige" don't equal "Profits" in the airline business. I refuse to believe that no one makes money between two of the world's largest cities and largest metro...

Re: Why did DL/UA cut NRT-JFK-NRT?

DL last flew JFK-NRT on the 744, and cut it as they started dismantling connecting traffic out of NRT. I don't think it's out of the question for DL to return to JFK-TYO, but it depends on how much they think they need to fly that route to get/keep the corporate traffic they want in NYC. If their NY...

If DL wants to get back into HKG on their own metal, I think the best option might actually be from JFK using the 777-200LR. That's on the wrong side of the country for most connections, but the O&D is very large and lucrative, and once the 77Ls are refurbished DL would have a very competitive p...

I take it a CR9 with 70 seats isn't any less efficient than a CR7 with 70 seats? Otherwise, why wouldn't DL have just ordered some new -700s? Perhaps to allow for putting in additional seats in the future if scope changes or if some other 76-seaters leave the fleet?
