In all seriousness though, the chances of DL returning are slim to none. Same goes for any carrier from mainland US. Someone might add HNL-FUK down the line but non stop demand from the mainland isn't there. Any DL demand can be channelled through their partner KE at ICN, which is in close proximity. Likewise UA & AA have partners in TYO to take care of FUK.

It's not a small city/metro area, but international traffic in general is almost 100% leisure anyway (Inbound tourist is dominated by South Korean, since it's so close to South Korea. I mean, Fukuoka is closer to Seoul than it's to Tokyo).

Today we live in a different world, a world of airline partnerships. And Delta happens to have found a partner in Korean Air. Korean Air serves Fukuoka from Seoul, which is sufficient for Delta. Any passenger from the USA heading for Fukuoka can be booked on a Delta flight to Seoul from where Korean Air can forward this passenger to Fukuoka. That's the way the market works nowadays.
