i still dont understand why the japaneese government would allow american legacy carriers to operate hubs in their cities
old story. You know that airline called Northwest Airlines? They basically helped build up post war passenger aviation. In return they got rights. Some of the first JL
domestic flights in Japan were actually flown by NW
pilots. The Original JL
F/A facility had NW
F/A as instructors. At least that is what I read someplace.
Also remember that not even 20 years ago flying from ORD
would have been difficult to impossible without a tech stop. Japan became a major stopping point.
Japanese government doesn't have any control over NH
I think NW
will need to think about a west coast to China route or wait and try to do DTW
-China with a 787.
Yes...I am not a KIX fan. Let's Japanese Aviation!
