Now, it's just DTW, TPE, and HNL. I guess there just wasn't enough traffic. I do know that KIX has been less busy than predicted anyway, so it may not be NW's fault, just that the market can't support that many flights. Anyone have a guess?
Yes, there were a lot of flights out from KIX at that time. You can add MNL and SEA on top of the list above. And there was surely a flight between KIX-KHH. Hope some will come back (esp. KIX-MNL and KIX-LAX).
