If you're in Tokyo or are expecting to connect onward from Tokyo on a 744 tomorrow (Sunday), you might be waiting for our equipment to be rehabilitated.

And no, it has no new seats.
Do you mean 881? 891 goes from LAX-NRT. At least UA doesn't need a 747 to go NRT-BKK today, so there's some slack in the system.
