How Come JAL Does Not Serve Sea?

Sun Jul 29, 2001 12:26 pm

Hello,

Seattle is considered Tokyo's sister city. It seems kind of ironic that JAL does not serve Seattle from Tokyo. Anyone know how why they don't fly here?

I think JAL was there in the 80's but stopped the flights. Right now, there are 3 carriers (AA, UA, NW) operating the route. With the JAL connection with AA, I doubt they would come in any time soon.

JAL doesn't go to Seattle?? That's very surprising, since Seattle is the trendiest destination they could possibly serve these days thanks to Ichiro & co.

On a non-aviation related note, does anyone happen know if Ichiro's got an official website?

NW and UA fly daily SEA-NRT flights (NW is a 742, don't know about UA), while AA flies MIA-SEA-NRT daily. When MIA-NRT goes non-stop (I think it's going to happen within three years), I don't know wether they would stop SEA-NRT, but I don't see why they would.

I know NWA and AA fly to Tokyo from Seattle. I know UAL flew Seattle to Tokyo but not sure if they still do. The Seattle to Tokyo market is well served but not by JAL. The reason why I bring it up is my father does business with the Japanese. They fly over all the time for meetings on one of the American carriers and not one of them has had something good to say about the US airlines. They always say that if JAL or ANA served Seattle that would be there first choice. This leads me to believe that JAL or ANA might be missing out. Many Japanese tourist would most likely prefer to fly one of their own airlines.
