When did JAL drop SFO-NRT??? I've noticed that it had been gone for quite some time. I know they have SFO-HND. But JAL had been flying SFO-NRT forever.

JL started HND-SFO on 31st October 2010. They ceased operating from NRT on that date in favor of HND.

A lot of air carriers who were awarded the HND route hoped, due to the proximity of Tokyo, it would become popular with the business sec.

Wow, I didn't realize that they had made move for routes. I would think, at least during the summer, that SFO could fill two planes to Tokyo and destinations beyond. Hopefully, as Japan continues to recover, the route will return. When I flew on JAL's four cabin 777 service from NRT to SFO, last year, the service was incredible. Their premium economy product was a real treat!

Well, not quite forever...NRT did not exist when JAL started service to SFO in 1954...the service moved from HND (then known as TYO) to NRT when the latter opened in 1978...so, with the return to HND as their gateway to SFO, you could say JAL has come "full circle" on their Tokyo - SFO service.

As far as my lifetime's concern, they have served NRT-SFO forever. LOL!

Yeah, not a surprise at all! Does this make money for JL: here is the question.

You may also know that they are experiencing some very serious financial troubles and that even routes that have been flown "forever" can be reconsidered, especially when they get granted access to HND in the same time. That flight moved to HND, and I guess there is currently too little room for a second flight.

I'm surprised this has not come up yet after 4 replies, so I'll bring it, but in a sarcastic way: it will return when they get the 787 . Together with so many routes, right?



When I doubt... go running!

It's forever as far as NRT's existence is concerned.

Where NRT-SFO is concerned...not quite forever, even as far as NRT's existence is concerned...inasmuch as NRT-SFO is no more...at least for now.
