Once again, I congratulate SJC on this new service! Another very good example of the Dreamliner helping to change commercial aviation. I hope the route is a success for both ANA and San Jose.

Stay tuned for yet another long haul service from SJC that is currently being planned as we speak.

I'll gamble with you and say KE with a A330-200. Of course, there's a wide range of possibilities...not just Asia.

I was just guessing because the poster is showing a Korean flag and Asiana, a*A carrier, would it in with the new *A carrier, NH. But then again, I always thought a Taiwan Carrier, BR/CI, would be a canadate.

As for a European carrier, none, besides LO, have a 787 in their fleet and most are locked into SFO.

Looks like it's at the gate now.

Will the NH flight do the same interesting departure that the AA flight to NRT used to do? They'd level off at 5000 feet and overfly the SF Peninsula at that altitude until getting over the ocean at about Pacifica. It was VERY scenic. I did once see the AA 777 overhead going around the Loop departure.

Who says it has to be a 787s? A 763 could do it too. I'd bet on BA doing SJC-LHR.

Remember that AA did SJC-TPE for about six months in 2001. From what I heard, loads were good but 9/11 and AA's general giving up on SJC doomed it.

Yeah!!! Thanks for the great photo. Looks like they departed from 30R, which is pretty standard - and about a 6000 foot takeoff roll (you can see the runway remaining marker for the other direction).

Tom was going to try to get a photo of it at the gate, so hopefully we'll get to see that too.

I'm personally coming to SJC about monthly for family reasons, but unfortunately couldn't coincide my visit with this very special event. Otherwise, I'd have been right there with Seahawks757 taking photos.

Anybody know what departure pattern they flew?

That sort of answers it. If they had to go around the loop departure (which the AA NRT flight did on rare occasions), they would have turned right after takeoff. Sounds like they did the straight departure, which requires a level-off at 5000 feet until they get out over the ocean.

Would they be able to make the route work, though? I feel like they might not be able to fill a 77W and probably not an A359 either (especially since neither would have much connecting traffic), so, unless an A333 can fly that route, they might've already ruled it out themselves.

767 are old school and are on their way out at most airlines. The airport already talked to BA the last couple of years and they passes along with VS. I say it will be an Asian carrier.

The loads were good because of the price. You could fly round trip for $450. Just like NH, the SJC side is almost all O&D. The connections are all on the other side.

Yep, that was the one of the main missions of the 787, to enable new point-to-point non-stop service to operate profitable.

Four cities have (or will) already gain new non-stop NRT service because of the 787: SJC, SAN, BOS, DEN. I would think that DL could make SLC work too if they had 787s anytime soon.

Yeah, that's true for NH. AA had more connections on the SJC side when they did NRT: BOS, AUS, LAS, SNA, SAN, etc. In any event, I think the route will do great.

787 service to NRT now from SEA, SJC, LAX & SAN. They all line up over the Aleutians, catch up with BOS and land over an hour and a half.
