Not huge news, but, for the first time, American Airlines will offer daily service between Miami and Tokyo, Japan with no change of plane. The aircraft will stop in Los Angeles.

AA 169 MIA 0800-1002 LAX 1230-1600+1 AA), Japan">NRT
AA 170 AA), Japan">NRT 1615-1015 LAX 1330-2131 MIA

Operates daily with 777-200ER.

Service starts 4 April 2003. American Airlines has offered "direct" Miami-Tokyo service before, first via Seattle and currently via O'Hare, but with change of plane and sometimes terminal, it was anything but direct.

What is the flying time on that...including the stopover? Would NRT pax be allowed to de-board in LAX?

Otherwise, that would be an unbearably long flight, even in Bus or 1st class....

Interesting though...

NRT passengers, like all US-bound international passengers, must deplane at their first point of entry into the United States.

Why didn't not get chance with nonstop from MIA-NRT? You mean that direct for the 1-stop in LAX and no plane change either. It is still competition of other airlines goes to NRT flight.

Unfortunately that's the problem with international one-stop flights that stop in the US.

UA had the same issue with DEN-EWR-LHR. You have to deplane in EWR and go through customs, then board the plane again. It's quite a hassle, my sister had to do it.

The schedule was loaded in SABRE last night. Although it is the SAME flight number all the way through, and a 777 all the way through, there will still be a change of aircraft at LAX. The MIALAX will be flown with a 777A (16F 35J 190Y) and the LAXNRT will be flown with a 777P (18F 42J 163Y). So still a have to change in LAX.

BA,

Are you sure the passenger traveling DEN-EWR-LHR has to de-plane to go thru customs? Passengers leaving the US do not go thru US customs. They are probably going thru passport control.

bobnwa-
Probably what BA meant was that passengers must deplane in EWR, as the airplane must go through an international security check. No one, not even the crew working the trip can be on the airplane while this is being done.

International 1 stop services into America are terrible - Delta tried it with a LGW BOS LAX - involved deplaning - immigration - baggage pick-up - Customs, baggage drop - change of terminal - security re-board same plane. Same plane makes no difference.

A lot of airlines do the 1-stop flying within the US. Delta did it from MCO-NRT, ATL-NGO.

Do passengers have the deplane on QF's LAX-JFK and LAX-ORD flights??? Did they do that with the NZ's HNL-DFW flights (when it happened)?

Yes.

all international pax (with the exception of pre-screened) must clear customs/immigration at the first point of entry into the USA

Before September 2001, it was not like that. One reason SAA ended the FLL stop on CPT-ATL was because of the fact that it was too much of a hassle deplaning everybody at Ft. Lauderdale. SAA has been one of the biggest pushers towards ending these rules so that they could resume FLL service, but no luck so far.

Sorry, what I meant to say is my sister flew DEN-EWR-LHR then flew back and while flying back she went through Customs in EWR.

I do not think she deplaned while leaving the US, I will ask her.
