50%? Oops.. lots of news say the load is about 70-80%. And the news says that most of the passengers are business travelers and no any transfer passengers, so they pay almost normal fare!! While ICN-NRT flights are filled with discounted passengers or transfer, etc.
Quoting Swissgabe (Reply 1): And I wonder why people not having onward connection would fly ICN-NRT iso GMP-HND. Does any of these airline reduce NRT-ICN vv. services?
The reason is GMP and HND is really close to the city(Seoul/Tokyo), while ICN and NRT is relatively far. And any airlines who flies GMP-HND cannot reduce ICN-NRT frequency, or their cashcow right-GMP-HND right- will be deprived. Since Jul 16th, Asiana will upgrade the last A321 ICN-NRT flight to B767.
