Re: Will AA end Narita service? Much

They dont fly a ton of NRT. 2x DFW, 1x LAX and that 3x weekly ORD, which was all but handed over to JL already. So it is possible that AA goes 2x DFW-HND, keeps LAX-HND and hands 3x NRT-ORD and 1x LAX-NRT to JL. Or 1x DFW and LAX and JL adds capacity at DFW. So, not a crazy reduction- and AA could ...

Why would they want to? Because JL and AA are such close partners, a lot of connections can flow through NRT. Since they have a JV, it is possible that they consolidate AA metal at HND and let JL fly ex-NRT. NRT is also declining in importance for AA and overall. Now that HND is expanding and they ...
