Oh, I meant sending carriers on to Brazil and Latin America via United's Mega Latin America hub at IAH. The 77W of NH would turn and go back to NRT. (Or day I say, Haneda?)

It wouldnt be too long a layover. Roughly 6-7 Hours for GRU/GIG/EZE and much shorter for the closer South and Central American connections such as MEX, LIM, BOG, MGA, GUA. Those connecting would most likely be business travelers who would be using the lounges.
Basing a proposed IAH
flight using the current UA
flight, a noon or 1300 departure to NRT
would arrive around 1000 - 1100. Those connecting to MEX
and Central America would have shorter layovers compared to those going to EZE
, or GRU
where those flights leave around 2100, almost a 9-10hr layover. On the return to NRT
, layover times would not be much of a problem.
I definitely think a HND
would not work as well relying on both O/D, which is rather low. What would work is UA
reworking the schedules, especially since both have ATI. I postulate NH
could take over the current UA
schedule using a 77W and UA
introduces a later NRT
flight still on a 772 and later upgauge to a 744.
