Good News

It's good news. Hopefully, they will look at more frequencies in other U.S. markets in the near future.

Only if they have enough planes. They originally plan to use 787 on some new US/European flights

ANA can not expand any more (at the moment) because they lack aircraft. They had plans to expand to Europe from HND, but have no aircraft to do so.

ANA could run extra flights to South East Asia w/ their 773 or 772 or 77E or 77W that park overnight in NRT. Some of these aircraft have almost 18 hours RON times

But only for two months (Jan 22nd through March 26th), and the new flights don't have the new F and J seats...

Very strange. I wonder why they're only doing this for 2 months? Are the 77Ws under-utilized, and they're looking for another place to fly revenue service until a new route is started in late March?

This article says that it's to handle increased passenger loads on weekends. As to why it's only running until the end of March: ANA will release their April-January timetable in late January / early February, so they may continue service into the first half of FY2011.

ANA JFK NRT Double Dailies on Saturday

I just read that ANA will have double daily flights from JFK NRT from January 22 through March 26, 2011.

NH1009 will depart 4:00 pm and arrive Tokyo 8:20 pm.

NH1010 will depart 3:45 pm and arrive New York 2:15 pm.

It's on the old style seats however there seems to be a 'J' fare in business class that is $1000 cheaper than the 'Z' fare on the IOJ flight.
