Quoting Kaitak744 (Reply 1): In addition to the one coming for the ORD route, they still have 4 on order. I assume 1 more will be for SFO. This leaves for 2 more destinations. Anyone think KIX-LAX a possibility?
I think that KIX is a touch market from/to LAX. JAL is stopping, or just stopped service. TG also stopped flying LAX-KIX, although this was due to the nonstop to Bangkok. AA is also going to drop KIX from DFW. It looks that UA from SFO does have a high yield of pax to KIX, as well as HNL and does well to KIX.
ANA used to operate several Long Haul flight from KIX, but all got cancelled due to low profits. KIX is a destination where either an airline does well or not.

actually from the NH website this is the schedule that was flown for the 777 into SFO:
San Francisco - Narita
Flight No. Period. Depart Arrive M T W T F S S Eqp Stops
NH007 3/26-4/1 1100 1500+1 772 None
4/2-4/10 1200 1500+1
4/11-6/30 1200 1500+1 773
7/1-9/30 1200 1500+1 772
10/1-10/28 1200 1500+1 773
so if its hard to read basically the 772 operated the flight from March 26- April 10, and July 1- September 30. The remaining time was the 773ER. However there could have been subs.

It is not possible for ANA to currently serve LAX, JFK, IAD, and SFO with just 5 aircraft. That would mean roughly 20 hours of utilization per day on each aircraft. It is only possible for 3 destinations. LAX, JFK, and IAD. ORD and SFO (permanently) are to come with the addition of more aircraft.

Quoting Carpethead (Reply 8): NH will be getting its &th & 7th 773ER before the start of NRT-ORD.
In its November schedule, NRT-LAX will be a combination of 773ER & 744 while NRT-SFO will be 772ER with a possible 773ER sub.
Thanks for the info!
Quoting Jfk777 (Reply 5): Both Japanesse airlines are replacing the 744 with 773ER. JAL has replaced all their European 744 with 773ER opposite what ANA did replacing them first to the USA.
JAL has flies their 773ERs and 772ERs to Europe, but the 744 is still being used on some European destinations namely: AMS, MXP and FCO.
JAL flies its 773ERs on NRT-FRA, NRT-CDG and NRT-LHR, but also on other routes like NRT-DPS and NRT-KIX
JAL flies its 772ERs mostly from KIX to LHR, NGO-CDG and NRT-CDG and many other intra Asian routes
