SJC-NRT reinstated -- but on ANA, not AA

Interesting that ANA thinks they can make money where AA failed. Could be because ANA has a hub in Tokyo, although given the AA/JAL JBV I would think AA would be able to benefit from connecting NRT traffic too.

After a four-year courtship with All Nippon Airways, Mineta San Jose International Airport once again will have nonstop, regular service to Tokyo.
Expected to start next year, the flights offer the Silicon Valley airport a dose of optimism after losing carriers and millions of passenger trips and dollars in recent years.

[...]

The last direct flight from San Jose to Tokyo ended five years ago, when American Airlines canceled its direct flights after 17 years of service.

And at the same time ANA announced SEA-NRT service which was axed by AA just after 9/11.

ANA is going to use the 787 on the route. Im sure many SFO travelers who want to go to Tokyo will simply take it for the 787

Well, this non-AA topic was started here once (when it was actually news) and, apparently, moved to an appropriate forum. I guess it can be moved again

Cheers.
