ANA To Dus?

Thu Mar 15, 2001 2:11 am

Some rumours at Duesseldorf International says that ANA will start service between Tokyo and Dusseldorf on B767-300. Anyone knows more?  Wow!

sounds rather strange.
some years ago, some asian airline, i believe it was asiana, was looking at services to dusseldorf because regarding their planned route FRA was saturated and DUS would still provide enough high-yield traffic, but somehow this never came to be.

well, technically a 763 could make it nonstop form NRT to DUS. i flew once LAX-MUC on a 763 and that was pretty full (i don´t know for cargo carried on that flight in the bellym, though) and that flight is longer than NRT-DUS, so i assume a 763 could actually make it. but i don´t know for other circumstances, headwinds, etc. which must be taken into account. i don´t believe there´s ever been a regular nonstop 763 flight between japan and western europe, so somehow i tend to believe that the 763 is not the ideal plane for such a routing. i could be wrong, though...

in addition, ANA recently stated that they currently want to expand more on medium haul routes, intra-asian routes... that´s were they could compete more easily with JAL because JAL already has an intensive international network. so that makes this statement seem unusual, in my eyes, however, i´d really like to see ANA increasing flights to germany.
hope we´ll get some japanese carrier soon in MUC!!!

If only pure sweetness was offered, why's this bitter taste left in my mouth.

It would be truly great if ANA would come here... I doubt it though.

AFAIK, Emirates will serve DUS (with A310, later with A332) effective March 31.

763 could do it easily, Launda got BKK-Vienna and CA used to run Beijing to CPH with 763

ANA served FRA with 767s in the mid 90s. SK fly CPH - NRT with 767-equipment.

Emirates will start with a A310-300 low density on 27 March 2001. This will be upgraded to a A330-200 low density on 1 Feb 2001. Keep an eye out - Emirates may from time to time substitute the A310 with the A300-600R or the A330 until the formal changeover happens on 1 Feb 2001.

It will be a daily nonstop operation DXB-DUS-DXB.

At least it would make some sense regarding the Japanese community in DUS area
