TWA will not fly to Asia anytime soon- they were always focused on flights over the Atlantic. They're even pulling out Europe now.
I hope to see TWA flying all corners of the globe- but I'm not holding my breath.

Nah.....They don't have the planes (I don't believe all
the hype about a 777 order either). TWA will surely
be posting heavy losses again. Besides, I doubt there
is sufficient traffic to warrant STL-NRT services?
Acvitale, weren't you promising us a big order from
TWA for 777's or 767-400's? I've stopped holding my
breath. Gotta catch my CO flight now.

Hong Kong, Bangock (spelling?), and Tokyo were all served in the 60's as well as Guam. Iti s my understanding that TWA gave up those rights and in return, Pan Am gave up most of its rights in Paris. This helped them both since they could now eliminate some competition. Bombay as well as Kuwait City were served in the 80's, but were dropped.

I'd like to see TWA in Asia again...
TWA has code-shares with ANA(All Nippon Airways) Since it is for the USPS(US Postal Service), are they codesharing with NCA(Nippon Cargo)? Or is it for passenger flights?

As said TWA codeshares with ANA for postal services only, not pax.
TWA has for some time now been rhumored to want to open up STL-NRT, however I don't believe any of their planes, including ETOPS 767-200 could make it. If this supposed widebody order includes 777-200, TWA would be able to run the service. I think they have the authority but not the slots. Once the new runway at NRT is completed, that problem may be alleviated.
Technically, TWA flies to Asia with daily service from JFK-TLV and CAI-RUH.
In the Middle East (Asia), TW codeshares with Kuwait Airways and Royal Jordanian.
