With nearly 5-hour layovers on the return to SEA, SFO and LAX, or overnight 22-hour connections to JFK, IAD and ORD? We'll see how this works out in that regard.

In the DEL -> NRT -> US direction, you may need a overnight layover if you are flying to NYC, WAS or CHI but you'll have a generous approximate 4 hour layover if travelling to SEA, SFO or LAX.

Posted sample schedules on the ANA site are only for their own services.

NYC, IAD and ORD can connect on UA respective departures within a few hours along with UA services to IAH, HNL, GUM, SEA, SFO, LAX etc.

No need for overnight in Tokyo. Just mix/match flights across the two airlines.

So if you're going to the west coast, going through NRT is shorter and faster. If you're going to the east coast, chances are flying direct to JFK or connect in Europe is faster.

You are just looking at the NH flights that the DEL flight could connect to. Remember that this flight is operated as part of the joint venture with UA so for all intents and purposes UA and NH operate as one across the Pacific (and on certain intra-asia flights)

ORD 1635 UA882
IAD 1555 UA804
EWR 1635 UA78
IAH 1555 UA6

All of which are 3-3.5 hours from the time that the DEL flight arrives.

Huh? Its well timed for UA's evening bank from NRT to EWR, LAX, SFO and ORD, what else are you looking for?

Ah, quite right. Interesting that if NH is launching this route in cooperation with UA and their JV, NH wouldn't include the best connections available with UA as well. But then airline advertising isn't my line of work.

If you need to fly to NYC, IAD or ORD, you do not need to fly through NRT.
You can easily fly DEL-EWR nonstop on UA or even fly LH or LX with a single connection.

From the schedule above it says a 763. I wonder if this is an Air Nippon one like the ones they send to MNL.

Isn't it called Air Japan or something? I am flying on it in late October, close to the launch date of DEL.

On the Asia end IIRC at the moment its Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
I’m sure they and Oneworld would like to add China but bilateral is not free enough to do so. Also for some reason they excluded South Korea from the JV even tough its open-skies.

JAL already operates NRT-DEL 4x weekly with the B-787-8 and weekly with the B772. In December, JAL will increase frequency and capacity on the NRT-DEL route by deploying the B772 on the route daily.

Japan-DEL is not currently flown by NH? That's new to me.

Guess this shows how small the local market is relatively speaking. I at least know India is not big for Japanese tourists.

I believe it will be as majority if not all the ANA 767-300ERs are now operated by the Air Japan subsidiary.

Once schedules are up in GDS (I guess by the weekend) we will know for sure.

Yeah for being such major economic nations, the two have very little direct service between them.
Air India for instance surprisingly only serves NRT twice weekly !

ChinaIndia is even more sparse, particularly compared to the size of the populations though the trade between the two is meager.

Is there any confirmation that this is a part of the UA/ NH JV? Isn't that restricted to the trans-pacific sectors (like the UA/ LH JV is restricted to trans-atlantic from what I know)?

Given UA already serves Delhi on it's own metal, and via FRA/ MUC on JV partner LH, I'd be (pleasantly) surprised if they were adding NRT-DEL as well.

Of course it could just be a code share, but I'm not sure it's a JV (joint costs, joint revenues).

One interesting thing is that on USA-NRT-DEL, UA will be the one offering the better hard product since the 767 fleet at ANA does not have fully flat seats. Of course, soft product is different too.

Going via NRT saves about 500 miles over EWR or FRA. It's not that significant, but from the west coast, it is a bit shorter going via Asia.

I stand corrected, it extends to domestic flights at both ends as well.

From: http://www.businesstraveller.asia/as...ental-and-ana-launch-joint-venture

Quote:
The revenue sharing agreement applies to 120 flights per week: US domestic flight segments on United or Continental, transpacific segments with ANA, United or Continental and flights within Japan on ANA.

Also: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...cific-joint-venture-119064409.html

Quote:
The trans-Pacific joint venture connects 295 U.S. cities, 43 Japanese cities, and 11 routes between the two countries with nearly 120 flights per week. The carriers also are coordinating fares and schedules for travel to and from certain other points in Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Could the NRT-DEL be part of the JV under the point in bold above? Can't say for sure until we see an announcement from UA or NH.

Pax from west coast would definitely benefit from this. Going via EWR or FRA is much longer.

Take SFO-DEL. Via NRT is 14% longer than GC nonstop, but 23% longer via FRA or 28% longer via EWR.
