SFO-SHA is not currently suspended. Flight still operates, daily 744, UA857/858.

Also...
LAX-AKL is LAX-AKL-MEL.
SFO-SYD is SFO-SYD-MEL
One of two daily SFO-NRT is SFO-NRT-ICN.

Anyone know how much longer UA will operate the SYD - MEL segment. Apparently, the Aussie govt recently revoked their rights to carry SYD-originating pax just to MEL.

My SYD-MEL theory is that segment is flown to give UA pilots more flying time (they did this with SYD-BNE many years ago). Apparently there has been some concern by the FAA that UA 744 drivers do not have sufficient take off/landing experience as almost all their 744 sectors are double crewed. I think Northwest avoided the FAA's concern as their NRT hub had sufficient short haul 744 operations.

SYD daily 747-400
AKL daily 747-400 (flight continues to MEL)

From SFO
NRT daily 747-400 (flight continues to ICN)
NRT daily 777-200 (flight continues to PEK)
HKG daily 747-400
SYD daily 747-400 (flight continues to MEL)
TPE daily 747-400
SHA daily 747-400
KIX daily 747-400

From ORD
NRT daily 747-400 (flight continues to ICN)
HKG daily 747-400
PEK daily 777-200

JFK-NRT daily 777-200 (flight will continue to TPE)

NW flies to more Asian destinations, only that 90% of the times you have to connect through NRT.

Both SFO-NRT flights are operated by the 747-400, however the second daily rotation is due to switch to a 777-200 on January 8th.

FYI--UA no longer serves SHA, but rather the new Shanghai International Airport in Pudong, PVG.
