I presume the onward flight to MNL is affected by this as well, right?

That's a lot of fuel to have to lose.
Just accept that some days, you're the pigeon, and other days the statue

Quoting Akiestar (Reply 2):

Not necessarily. The ships rotate in NRT, they do *not* always follow the flight numbers. Depending on what spare ships are available, they would likely delay or downgauge a NRT-HNL flight, as NRT tends to have 1-2 RON birds anyway - especially on A330 and 744.
