I wonder how they intend to control the yields.
When JL operated this flight, they were losing money with an average of a 95% load.

Is there some sort of subsidy or revenue arrangement in play here? I realize that DL has been steadily growing its Hawaii-Japan presence with the addition of NGO and now FUK, but NGO has had consistent service to HNL. FUK has not. If a Japanese airline can't pull it off (yes, I realize JL had its financial issues, but there's always NH to fill the void - the home country airlines have a huge leg up with the finicky local Japanese market), I would be shocked if a U.S. airline could...
