Ok I have never seen anything like this on Airliners.net? Anyway here it goes. At Tokyo Narita are there more Boeing Airliners of Airbus? I know its an odd question.

Thanks

I would say Boeing. I was in Narita this summer, and I saw most of the planes were 747 and 777.

Consider the fleets of the primary operators there.

JAL: 747 & 777
ANA: 747 & 777
NWA: 747

747's then other boeings, then airbuses

I would say NWA does operate 330s as well, isn't it?


However, I also think that there are far more Boeings in NRT than Airbus. This goes for most major Japanese Airports.

However, if not mistaken, I would say more International airlines fly into NRT using Airbus than Boeing. Eg LH, LX, OS, SK etc. (CI, MH, QF, PK, TG, KE, PR etc. from time to time).

From what I have seen in the last few years, it looks like there are more 777s than 747 these days.

I think you are mistaken here. From what I have seen (1-2 times every year) most airlines are using 777s and 747s. There are some 340s and 330s, but not very many.

And AA has a nice multi-777 operation there, 6 a day I think. CO runs three.

Flying through the next month and have a layover on the return and from where I am from im used to mostly A320s and 737 with a few widebodies boeing and airbus.

I really want to go to an airport that is full of 747s and 777s.

Before the introduction of A340/B777s...I would say during the early to mid 1990s the amount of NRT's B747 traffic was something like 90% of all traffic....Just leaving very small room for DC10/B767/L1011/A300...then the opening of the second runway came and the airlines started to fly smaller equipment there...

What can I say, Boeing is the way to go.

Way more Boeings. JAL and ANA. Also United, Korean, AA, SQ, BA. Sometimes you'll see NWA or CX Airbuses, but even they are mostly Boeings. Other carriers may have both, but still more Boeings.

Over the years I've seen a marked evolution from nuthin' but 747s, to many more twins.

Yes they do, but I have never seen them operate one at NRT so I left it off the list.

Can't believe I forgot UAL at NRT... I must have been repressing their terminal  Smile

NRT-SEA and NRT-PDX on NW are both A330s.

You can have a look here to get an idea of the type used at NRT.

http://www.narita-airport.or.jp/ais/flightall/e_inter_dep.html

A quick count give the following:

4 B757
35 B767
69 B747
49 B777
1 DC10

2 A320
1 A321
3 A300-600
16 A330
8 A340

You have to go to the deck on terminal 1. It's an amazing place! Enjoy the widebodies...

Have a great trip! You will enjoy seeing all the widebodies. As per JumboForever's post, the majority at NRT are Boeing, but there are plenty of Airbus operators to keep things interesting.

As previous posters, mostly 747-400s and 777s. A fair smattering of 767s. Perhaps the very occasional Russian jet too.

About a year or two ago you would have been treated to many more DC10s (NW, JL) as well as a few 747 Classics (JL, ANA, AI, KE etc). Iran Air still occasionally use the 747 Sp to NRT from Tehran, though more often it's the A300 (or maybe 310??) these days. NW 330s aren't rare and last time I was at NRT I was treated to the sight of an NW DC10 going on to HKG.

T1 obs deck is brilliant. Views to the runway are grat; though it's always NW and UA parked right in front of it. The more interesting airlines use T2, though unfortunately, there's no really good view points inside T2.

All I can say is just look at a few of the pics in the database and you will quickly see that Boeing is all over NRT.

NRT will not disappoint. It's so full of them, that you will be looking for other planes just for a change!

Yep, sits over the NW connection area and has great views of runways and taxiways. Buy some red bean ice cream from the little shop there and enjoy.

Also AA Admirals Club has some decent views.

NRT is very restricted and Boeing has the largest aircraft at the moment. So airlines operate the biggest plane they have. It's that simple.

Yeah. Not that simple or JL and NH wouldn't be flying so many 772s and 773s in there when they have 747s they could be using. NW also flies the 330 there when they could be using 747s on all segments, UA flies 772s when they could be flying 747s, etc.

Airlines fly the plane suitable for the route and the mission, not just the biggest ones they have. I know, the A380 business case is predicated on the idea that all routes are better off with the biggest, lowest CASM plane possible, but it's not true, even at NRT.
