KE, OZ, JL, NH To Double GMP-HND Since Aug.

Wed Jul 06, 2005 10:55 pm

Thanks to Japanese government and good loads, currently 4 daily GMP-HND will be doubled since Aug. Now all 4 airlines confirm their 2nd schedules as

KE
Now : GMP 1000 1200 HND 1320 1540 GMP, B744
-> 1st : GMP 0915 1115 HND 1300 1520 GMP, B744
2nd : GMP 1640 1840 HND 2000 2220 GMP, B744

OZ
Now : GMP 1100 1310 HND 1410 1630 GMP, B767
-> 1st : GMP 0835 1035 HND 1200 1420 GMP, A330(a new one)
2nd : GMP 1550 1750 HND 1920 2140 GMP, A330

JL
Now : HND 1025 1250 GMP 1440 1640 HND, B747
-> 1st : HND 0815 1040 GMP 1155 1355 HND, B747
2nd : HND 1535 1800 GMP 1915 2115 HND, B747

NH
Now : HND 1115 1335 GMP 1515 1715 HND, B767
-> 1st : HND 0915 1135 GMP 1255 1455 HND, B767
2nd : HND 1635 1855 GMP 2015 2215 HND, B767

Hope all of them do well. Maybe there was a lottery something. 2 different "airline-pairs" have approximately an hour different schedule.

Are the loads really that good? I flew GMP-HND on KE this Feb and the load was around 50%. I'm pretty sure in the holiday season those flights are packed but how does the annual load look like?

And I wonder why people not having onward connection would fly ICN-NRT iso GMP-HND. Does any of these airline reduce NRT-ICN vv. services?

50%? Oops.. lots of news say the load is about 70-80%. And the news says that most of the passengers are business travelers and no any transfer passengers, so they pay almost normal fare!! While ICN-NRT flights are filled with discounted passengers or transfer, etc.

The reason is GMP and HND is really close to the city(Seoul/Tokyo), while ICN and NRT is relatively far. And any airlines who flies GMP-HND cannot reduce ICN-NRT frequency, or their cashcow right-GMP-HND right- will be deprived. Since Jul 16th, Asiana will upgrade the last A321 ICN-NRT flight to B767.
