Just wondering who flies the USA to Osaka nonstop? Thought NWA did out of DTW. But apparently not. Any help would be appreciated.

NW does out of HNL. NW flight 315 daily on an Airbus 330-300  Smile hope this helps. They used to fly out of DTW. Guess not enough demand for a nonstop.

I believe the current commercial flights are:

Northwest - HNL (A330)
United - SFO (B777)

And coming up:
Delta - SEA (B763) - starts June 2010

and then a slew of cargo flights.

Not the mainland but Guam and Saipan are US territories. NW (752), JO (763) and KE (333) all operate daily GUM-KIX, KE with 5th freedom rights. OZ also operates 3 per week SPN-KIX (5th freedom) with 763. NH codeshares on the OZ flights.

The only one I can think of is the JAL flight out of HNL. Otherwise everything else is out of Tokyo

ANA codeshares with UA's SFO-KIX flight. The shinkansen train and the NW hub at NRT are the two big reasons why USA-KIX is barely served nonstop.

Is that some sort of bullet train?

AA used to fly DFW-KIX but that service was discontinued after 11 September 2001. It was reinstated in 2005 but in late 2006 it was discontinued again because it was not making money.
It used to be my favorite flight on the 777. I always liked Kansai Airport and staying in the Hotel Nikko Kansai Airport. You could walk to it from the terminal.
And the Shinkansen is the bullet train. You can travel from Tokyo to Shin Osaka in 2.5 hours if you take the Nozomi Shinkansen which only makes 3 stops...Shimbashi, Nagoya and Kyoto.



Have you kissed a 777 today?

Yeah, but getting out to NRT is far from fast, which is why it always amazed me the continued lack of international service to KIX.

It is the original bullet train, but now they have updated equipment.

None other than JL from HNL. I'm actually surprised that there are not any Asian carriers flying to the U.S. from KIX but I guess that their rail system works better then ours in North America.

Well the huge landing fees crippled it for years. Now i don't even think the demand is there.

Shinkansen = Bullet Train. It's just the proper name for the trains.

I would suggest too that flying into Tokyo and then taking the Shinkansen to Osaka is the way to go. It's a little longer in terms of time, but it's a great trip in terms of scenery.

Nope. The Shinkansen never stops at Shimbashi. For the Nozomi, there's Tokyo, Shinagawa, Shin-Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, and then Shin-Osaka.

Once upon a time there were the following trans-pacific flights from KIX. All were daily except where noted.

ORD (UA-744/777; JL-744 3/4 weekly)
LAX (UA-742/744; NW-742; JL-744; TG-744 3 weekly; BR-77W 3 weekly)
DTW (NW-744)
MSP (NW-742)
SEA (NW-D10)
DFW (AA-M11/777)
HNL (JL-D10 down from two daily to one daily; NH-763; UA-777)

Not all were served at the same time but most in the heydays ten years ago.

The #1 reason to go to Japan, it is amazing!!! Of course there are lots of other reasons, but...

I loved the ORD-KIX flight! KIX was a great layover, especially getting drunk on Saki with an old Japanese friend during a really long layover and then passing out and almost missing my redeye flight to BKK...

It was actually 1 747 and 1 DC-10 daily JAL.

Also, NW flew the DC-10 (mostly) and 742 between HNL-KIX.

I have a question for a Japanese Anetter.

Which is faster and cheeper from the US?
A- Flying into Tokyo Narita, transfer to the Shinkansen, then onto Osaka or
B- Flying into Tokyo Narita, transfer to Haneda, and catch a flight to Osaka. Im assuming there's a bunch of flights to Osaka from Tokyo.

I will prob be visiting Japan within the next year or two


25 Zentraedi : A will always be faster. Anyway scenario proposed in which B might be faster would be purely theoretical, highly inconvenient, and unrealistic. A sho
26 Travelin man : I believe KE also served LAX-KIX a few years ago. I seem to recall seeing that on their billboards in the LA area.
27 Carpethead : No. KE has never been on that route. LAX has been always thru NRT. Only other carrier that has discontinued LAX-Japan flying is MH when they had thre
28 Jumboforever : Why not fly USA-NRT-ITM?NH and JL have flights leaving in the evening and they code share respectively with UA and AA. Also both flights are operated
