I was supposed to be on DL295 ATL-NRT a few days ago, however I re-routed, as the flight was delayed 3 hours. What I noticed is that last weekend the timings of DL295 changed to depart ATL at 1pm however the DL296 flight from NRT is scheduled to arrive at 2:35pm. So with that timing it leads to me to believe that they are using 2 747's on that route.
However recently each DL295 flight has been leaving late, awaiting the DL296 so they seem to be using the same 747. So my question is did Delta incorrectly time DL295 or is there some other reason why they are only using 1 747??
I am sure this must be costing them some good money as each DL295 flight lately is arriving in NRT later than most connections causing a alot of people to either miss connections or re-route on them different flights.
