Hi...Anyone know how well the ANA business jet service NRT - BOM is performing ? They have two aircraft dedicated for this one daily service, one flying and one sitting by the ANA hangers at NRT. BA, with an all J class service of a similar distance LCY - JFK , manages two flights on weekdays with their two aircraft. So aircraft utilization must be low for ANA's two 737's - why not use them to try another all-J class route, like NRT - SIN or one of the China routes for example ?

So what happens when one of the BA A318 needs periodic maintenance?
With two 73Gs, ANA can offer NRT-BOM year-around without any sort of scheduled service disruption.
Though I have no knowledge of its financial performances, I have heard from my co-workers travelling on that flight, on some days its hard to book seats. Take that with a grain of salt.

Its not an all J service throughout the week. Some days its an all J service. Some days its Y and J in a mox mode config that is offered. The flight is a big hit..Some days, the flight goes full on both Y and J. I hear the flight is doing well consistently
