Nice additions to NRT, fares should drop a little too.

Very interesting development. It will certainly improve even further EK stronghold in GRU.

I think it could, but I am not completely sure about that. Because most of the Brazilian population lives near the Chubu area (NGO) and not around Tokyo. In addition, if they are non Brazilian and exempt from visa restrictions, they have the option of flying JL (NRT-JFK-GRU)

Interesting development indeed though. I heard from my boss and other members at EK is that they will start serving DXB-GRU double daily in the near future. If they are granted more flights to NGO, I reckon they might increase frequencies on some days because that is where a lot of Brazilians are coming from.

Thanks for the info. I read somewhere else that Dubai is facing serious problems because so many of the labourers do not have the money to get home at the moment. I guess this could be said for in Japan as well?

Why 5 per week? I guess Japanese negotiators are sooo afraid of EY & EK.
What's the purpose of having 35 weekly to both NGO or KIX because neither destination will ever go beyond the single daily flight for each carrier.
I guess we will be seeing the A380 for EK and 773ER or A346 for EY.

Actually, the article doesn't specifically mention NRT or HND, although I've been presuming that it's NRT. However, the problem with HND - initially, anyway - is that access will be very restricted - to before 6.30am or after 10.30pm (or thereabouts), so that causes problems for scheduling.

If it is 2010, this could be some of the new slots for NRT related to the 2nd runway extension. With more regional traffic going to HND and even some long-haul, this will help open slots at NRT.

But if they went for HND, it would not be as bad as we think.
This is what we have here in Nagoya.
DXB 2:45 NGO 16:50
NGO 22:45 DXB 5:55

This arrival would be too early for HND.
But...
DXB 8:30 HND 22:35
HND 1:30 DXB 8:30

Problem is that it might not be the best for DXB-West/South/North banks. Some popular destinations Might require a long layover at DXB.

Nice that they will get additions at KIX and NGO not like we would even see more than the daily.

By 2010, how many A380 operators will be flying to NRT?
We already have SQ. AF has stated it will use the craft to NRT. We know EK will use it. LH might use it. But will the other operators use it once they have them?

Indeed, Lipe. As per the article you sent me, JAL in Brazil stated that JAL flights Japan>Brazil are fully booked while JAL flights Brazil>Japan are not selling that well. Many dekaseguis are coming back to Brazil due to economic situation in Japan.

But if they are Brazilian, it would seem logical to use EK KIX/NGO-DXB-GRU instead of the JL flight if they are Brazilian labourers

They have to be cheap to convince passengers to fly such a devious and time-consuming route, more than 2000 miles further than a nonstop.

There are may pax who will fly EK JFK-DXB-JNB over say BA's JFK-LHR-JNB...I've actually met a few.  yes 

Using GCM as a "general guideline", JFK-DXB-JNB is 1800 miles more!  Wow!

It's an article from the most prestige Economic Newspaper in Brazil saying that many Brazilians with flexible labor agreements has been fired recently and they can't find another job. So they are trying to return to Brazil, but the flights are very busy for Japan-Brazil. However, Brazil-Japan market is weak.
Dubai probably will face problems with the slowdown.. people is not willing to buy anything and financing is not so easy which means projects may develop slower and demand less labor force.
It's a global problem!

You have a point here. But the problem is LHR has no non-stops from NGO and for that matter KIX very soon as well.

Int'l destinations from us are: CDG, FRA, HEL.

There has been calls to open up new direct routes to LHR, but I think they are losing Japan flights really badly. JL used to have double daily from NRT as well as BA. Now JL is one time daily and BA is following suite very soon.

In addition, JL's KIX-LHR is being axed soon.

AY also will get the desired new slots for NRT in 2010, the HEL-NRT will be 7x weekly then.

Yes, its a pity because as Centrair states, it ended shortly after 9-11 I think.

It was operated NGO-SPK-AMS. I have no idea why this was the case, but I hear that the old NGO runway was short. But considering that NW at that time did do NGO-DTW, I am quite uncertain as to why the MD-11 couldn't make it non-stop.

I wish this service would come back, but other than passenger revenue, I think there was some cargo revenue on this flight as well though.....

Quoting Hardiwv (Reply 13):

Yes I think there is a large Brazilian settlement in Gunma prefecture as well. I would reckon those people would use the NRT service when EK comes in.

What surprises me is the KIX service though. There are no large Brazilian population in the Kansai area, and every other airline is suspending routes. In addition, EK parks their aircraft at KIX for quite some time so I would reckon that their operation is not cheap.

Does anyone know if they are doing well on this route? Cargo perhaps?

Yes. There is a Brazilian population in Kanto but it is not as large as the Chubu population.
Currently I believe EK has a deal to connect with JL domestic flights including the NGO-NRT flight. If this continues, then EK doesn't have to necessarily increase Chubu but can just reroute passengers through NRT via JL.

I think that Tokyo service will work for business and connecting leisure and not so much for immigrants.

What will be interesting is if EK will run an A380 on DXB-NRT and only runs 772 on the other Japan routes.

Thanks for the information. We also have to keep into perspective that overall business continues to use NRT as the main hub and Japan-Brazil is also a very strong business, high yielding route. JL sells extremely well its F and C class products to GRU.
