22 Hour Delay On JL 18 (1/21/05)?

Sun Jan 22, 2006 4:23 am

I have no idea what happened to this flight but it never came into YVR this morning.

Can anyone shed light on what happened?

On the www.jalcargo.com homepage, it says that the flight has not departed NRT or anything. On the www.yvr.ca homepage, it says that the flight is delayed until 7:40 or so..........

What has happened to this plane? Did it leave NRT? Is it still sitting in NRT?

Snow in Tokyo is the short answer. They were diverting airplanes from Narita to Chubu as the lack sufficient deicing capacity at Narita resulting in long delays which then led to arriving airplanes have to park at remote stands which then filled up.
