Even had Narita expanded years ago the advent of efficient mid sized twins and alliances would have led to lack of hubbing through Tokyo, except for ANA and JAL.

It still seems a bit strange to think of Narita with more than one runway.

The taxiway along the second runway at Narita swerves close enough to the runway at one point that if a plane is landing the taxiing aeroplane must pause while the other passes by. It is full length, but taxi movement depends on what’s happening on the runway.
