Qatar airways didn’t start flying to jfk until after that.
United stopped flying to nrt from jfk in 2006. They had flown the route with a 777 since at least 2001 by that time.
Somethings wrong in what you’re saying

Didnt Delta start making money at JFK around 2018?
That’s hard to say. They have had a hub there of varying size since 1991. I imagine over the period of 30 years it was somewhat profitable
I hate when people say JFK wasn’t profitable. Back in the day, the NRT 747 was $1 million dollars a day flight. We were building mail for:
Plus the UA domestic and International. We were dumping over 100,000 pounds of mail on the afternoon shift alone. The trucks from IAD with the ISAL mail were the worst. UA lost contracts when the original Premium Service downgraded to two class. Up until the day we closed, we were handling large groups so there was always money to be made.
During Christmas time, Etihad was always angry with us. In one day we built enough containers of mail to fill the A340-600. There were no positions left for freight and passengers bags. UA was making money.[/quote]
