Looks like NW
can't make up its mind. They can't even fill a 752 on their CAN
route. If they did apply and decided to continue using their NRT
hub, I wonder what the next Chinese city it would serve, Chengdu or Chongqing? which geographically and economically more important than other western cities (eg Xian) in China?
They did DTW
before but returned to its NRT
strategy. With NWA itself a big mess right now and DTW
not exactly an exciting destination for O/D and lack of 744 to do non-stop to China, the question for NW
is, why bother this time?
