If you have ever seen the midnight Asian departures, there can be as many as 4 aircraft that depart back to back and all going to TPE.

Aren't there more flights into Narita than TPE from LAX? It seems many carriers go to Narita.
|Quoting LAXdude1023 (Reply 6):|
Yes, to NRT there is: NW, AA, UA, JL, NH, KE, and SQ. I might even be missing one. I think at any given time in the year, there are between 8 and 10 flights between LAX and NRT a day.

MH should shift their "through" flight through another Asian city that doesnt have any/as much service to LAX.

I fly BR on this route 3-5 times a year and the aircraft have always been full. It didn't matter if it was a B744, B744 combi, B773ER, afternoon flight, after midnight flight, any day of any month. F, C, and Y+ filled to the max. There were several times this summer on the afternoon flight every seat was filled and staff was looking for Y+ pax to volunteer to bump from a B744 to the midnight B773ER with an upgrade to C.

I was wondering why BR couldn't make BR11 daily, this flight was created so the early evening flight out of TPE (the more popular option for TPE-LAX sector) can turn around right away w/o parking at LAX all day, BR11 is usually cheaper, thus popular for vacationers going to BKK and HKG (I'm amazed at the number of transit passengers on this flight). I prefer this flight to TPE since I can go to bed after arrival and start next day fresh.
There's definitely a market for A380 as both CI and BR can operate double daily A380 on this route.

I flew SQ29 LAX-TPE-SIN in August, and the flight was probably 99% full ... I would estimate, however, that about 75% of the passengers continued on to SIN. I don';t know how that fits into the equation, but it's probably a factor.

I'm interested in seeing average load factors to NRT etc.. Where do you find this information? Who's is #1 to NRT? SQ, JL..?
|Quoting Spyderz (Reply 17):|
Ask and ye shall receive.
According to 2005 DOT T-100 data the average yearly load factors and market share for operators on the route are:
