Re: Question: will DL restart JFK-Asia on the A350?

IF DL ever adds back JFK-Asia, it seems pretty certain it would be an ICN flight at this point, but with the KE JV imminent (if not already implemented?) DL probably doesn't feel the need. As convenient as the NRT flight was for me, I don't see it coming back with the continuing drawdown of the NRT ...
