Great news! I'm glad this route is finally getting the nod from JAL. I think this takes care of all the "old" business for the carrier (and their 787 fleet) so now they can move ahead with new announcements and routes!

I'm happy for Helsinki and for Japan Air Lines.

Finally glad JL is putting this ugly battery mess behind them, and this will be a nice route for my Finnish friend to fly on when she comes to visit me  

Is JL's flight also daily?

Yes daily for JAL also.
HEL will be well connected to Japan this summer from July, with 4x daily flights: 2x NRT and KIX NGO   Will be so good to see JAL colors in HEL!

Not bad at all! Although, has NGO stepped up to daily? Thought it was still at 4-5 weeky...

Nagano will go back to 5x weekly after the summer, it seems.

Yes the flight is daily for the summer schedule although I think they cancel a few flights in October so it goes down to 6x weekly or so.

And of course during the winter schedule, it goes down to 5x weekly.

Its funny watching this done for the past few years. The other competitor to Europe (LH) actually upgrades to an A346 during the winter months as opposed the the A343 during the summer. Weird.

Yeah there is demand on winter for A333's to do some leisure flights. So they need to get the planes from other routes. NGO is the one to get the reductions. But then again JL is providing more seats from NRT.

Fantastic news! The B787 and the battery issues are quickly fading and the program is once again picking up momentum!

Differences is business demand in winter perhaps?

Thomas Cook Finland (Tjäreborg) says next winter Finnair's A340 operates their leisure flights to Mexico, Thailand (Krabi), Cuba and Vietnam. Could be a typo though, last winter the package holidaymakers could enjoy the latest AY A333 with flat bed seats  

So it seems for AY the long charters are better business in winter than daily service to NGO..
