I had 2 pax who were rerouted from AA on BA today, going LAX-LHR-NRT due to AA169 being cancelled. Certainly a long way to NRT but they really had to be in NRT as early as possible on Monday. Can someone shed some light on what happened to this flight today?

My guess is that there were no available seats for a direct LAX-NRT routing on any carrier due to the end of the Obon holiday period in Japan. Mid-August is one of the peak seasons for travel from other countries back to Japan.
