Why doesn’t ANA fly IAD-HND?

Wed Aug 07, 2019 1:07 am

How come the proposed IAD-HND service will be operated by UA and NOT ANA? I think it should be ANA that should apply for IAD-HND not UA.

ANA could fly it next summer if they want.

Between the two airlines, ANA/JL have essentially been granted 12 new HND-USA slots (6 each) starting in 2020. Neither has announced yet what they intend to do with them.

Only the US airlines have indicated what they intend to fly with the new slots, albeit with only tentative USDOT approval at this point. But unlike the US airlines, JL/ANA can fly whatever routes they wish. So it will be interesting to see which routes they choose. Maybe ANA will choose IAD, or maybe not. Time will tell.

You also, in a previous thread, said you thought UA should have bought 748s to fly between EWR and the west coast. Thankfully what you think doesn’t matter to those who know how to actually run an airline.

Because UA already flies IAD-NRT from having a hub at Dulles--which they have done for years--and they are switching the route authority over from NRT to HND.

Isn’t UA better off Flying to HND from EWR?
