The IAH-NRT route makes great sense for latin america connections. It also takes the pressure off the IAH-SFO feeders, which often fill early, and I suspect this costs UA some revenue.

That said, UA is clearly having some trouble filling its NRT flights. SFO-NRT is also an upgrade bonanza. Today's UA852 is booked only 29/52 in J and that's a pretty normal state of affairs right now. We'll see what happens when they move one of the two dailies to HND.
