I am wondering were Delta is flying their 747's to.
I do know they fly LAX-NRT, but this service will be "downgraded" to a A330-200 by the end of this year.
I did search the Delta website with no success, searching for LAX-NRT flight. So I considered flying Delta
and I found the A330 in service on that route for November. So were do the 747's go to?

Quoting cokepopper (Reply 3): Can anyone tell me if three a/c can be used for TLV-JFK-NRT-JFK-TLV?
No, the current schedules would require 4 planes, because the arrival at NRT from JFK is too late for the aircraft to turn the same day back to JFK.
JFK-NRT arrives at 1700hrs but NRT-JFK leaves at around 1500hrs. Hence the 744 from JFK will either have to RON at NRT or do one of the tags to MNL or PVG from NRT.

To nitpick, NRT-HNL is rotated as an interport flight also, same as the MNL and PVG flights. Three Tpac's in from MSP, DTW, JFK, three interports out to MNL, PVG, HNL. DL did a rather nice job with the 744 rotations in NRT on the summer schedule.
