Flights are there to be booked on their website.

2011 NOV 01

NH651 Haneda - Okayama 07:30 - 08:50 (replacing an A320!)

NH654 Okayama - Haneda 10:15 - 11:30

NH683 Haneda - Hiroshima 16:15 - 17:45 (also replacing an A320)

NH686 Hiroshima - Haneda 19:20 - 20:40

Looks like they are giving themselves six hours on the ground between flights and replacing the smallest type on each route.

Now then, I have to fly to from Hiroshima to Tokyo in November...

This seems like two rather short routes for the 787, considering JAL's first 787 route is NRT-BOS!

Likely, as this is a completely new fleet type. I'll bet even UA and ANA will fly some shorter routes before launching BOS, FRA, AKL, etc. Perhaps the first UA route we see could be IAH-ORD!

Availability on 01November shows all 787 flight waitlisted but available for freesell on 02 November. Sounds like the 01 NOV flights will be for dignatories, employees, media etc. Maybe some NH employees can verify.

Crew training and familiarity among other things, being a brand new type there will be a bit of this to do, much the same as when the A380 was introduced to AF and they deployed it to LHR for example. Although SQ put the A380 straight onto the SYD route most other airlines are conservative in their initial destinations,

I remember when DL got their 777's they did ATL-MCO for training and familiarity...cause I took a flight one day! I had no earthly reason to go to MCO, other than to ride the 777. Then came right back to ATL on it about an hour or so later.

Tried to book for mid-November, and get this:
*Reservations for Japan domestic flights must be made within 2months prior to the departure date.
WTF? Only 2 months in advance????? (and I meanANY flight, not just B787...)

Yep. Get used to it. Frustrating.

Mmm. I flew ZRH-CDG-ZRH in April 1991 to get on the first SR MD11s. They went tech on both legs and I had the pleasure of yet two more flights on MD81s.

Oh, there are ways around this. You can book "return" flights two weeks later than your first segment—even if they are beyond the 2 month limit. As well, if you are connecting to/from an international flight, you can book farther out. Finally, if you have an international flight on *A to/from Japan, you can book a *A Japan Air Pass.

Flying OKJ»HND on the 10th

The title caught me off guard also. I think it should read that ALL NIPPON MAKES 787 TRIPS BOOKABLE.....or something like that.

I'm really not trying to be mean, but your post reminds me of a recent Geico commercial ... something about a living under a rock.

The title of this topic is very misleading. ANA has NOT put the 787 into service. They have simply loaded it is the schedule. On Nov 1 we can post a topic saying it is in service.



...are we there yet?

Ha! Well I am no stranger to laughing at myself when I do stupid things. Although to my credit, August consisted of four 12-hour work days a week, and then weekends spent in Key West, Hilton Head Island, and Nicaragua... so this is the about the first free moment I have had in 30 days

They never said that would be the first route, just the first overseas route. They'll likely do shorthaul runs for awhile just as NH is doing for the sake of getting the crews used to it.

Since I'm planning on going to school in Florida next year, I'm holding out hope UA will be doing some IAH-MCO runs when they get theirs.

When a new type is sold does Boeing usually send a team with that plane for it's first month in service just to help them get through any potential growing pains with it?

Well I don't live under a rock and I too missed this momentous announcement. Granted those of us on the east coast were preoccupied with the hurricane, but that didn't stop me from scanning both this site and regular news sites during that time (not necessarily looking for 787 certification, but it slipped by rather quietly IMHO.)

I doubt it, as MCO is somewhat far from IAH compared to ATL. Plus MCO was a relatively large destination for DL back then. It is most likely that we will see inter-hub flights such as IAH-ORD or ORD-EWR, considering that the 787 is a relatively large aircraft.

Agreed, and they'll probably keep them out of ORD and EWR because of the day to day operational challenges there - there's no sense in making things any harder than they need to be with a new type. My money would be on routes involving IAH, DEN and LAX.

I'd be curious where AC will launch their 787's? Put it on YVR - YYZ for the first month and then into Europe or South America? Or by that time will they just put it directly into a long haul service?
