Very sad to hear this news. We were glad we were able to visit Shuri Castle when we did, 2 years ago.

Oh, fun. Just last month had a long chat in Japlish with my shinkansen seatmate en route to Kyoto about the Ise shrine and knew I had to make it there. Toyoda tour too?

Will be there next April if some J award seats appear!!

Looking forward! Would like to commit now, but likely will be able to confirm about a week or two beforehand.

8 years, hey? Time flies when you're having fun.

I am certainly interested in making it along to this one, although a few stars to align before I can confirm


Are you going to show up for once SQ421 ?

Update for me: I just booked flights and even hotels, so I’ll be there for sure. Arriving at NGO Tuesday the 7th, giving me some time to adjust and maybe do some side trip. Not leaving until the 17th (but out of KIX), so open to post dos. (All my hotel bookings can be changed).

Hi! When I search for flights on aa, it says:

Flight subject to government/regulatory approval

Service between LAX and HND is subject to government approval.
Service between HND and LAX is subject to government approval.
Service between DFW and HND is subject to government approval.
Service between HND and DFW is subject to government approval.
Service between SFO and NRT is subject to government approval.

What does this mean? I've never seen this before.


Thanks! Poptarts

Which airline(s)?

US airlines (AA, DL, UA) and Japanese airlines (JL, NH) are starting new services or moving existing services to HND (from NRT) following the opening of additional daytime slots at HND.

Perhaps the following threads might help answer your question:

Get ready for more HND international routes (Japan)
12 additional HND-US daytime slots are up for grab (JL)
HND / Haneda slots: AA prelim gets DFW, LAX routes Summer 2020 (update) (AA)
Delta exiting NRT, ending NRT-SIN and moving MNL flight to ICN (DL)
UA applies for 6x additional HND slots - UA gets EWR, ORD, IAD, LAX (UA)

P.S. you did say you searched AA. So hopefully one of the above links might help.

Yay! My first "Do"!

I will certainly attend, as I live in Nagoya. 😁
Please let me know if I can be of assistance in any way. PMs are welcomed.

Flights are booked - I'll be heading to Hanoi for their inaugral F1 race prior to the Do, conveniently including the side trip brought the fare down about US$600.

I should arrive in Nagoya some time Thursday. Not sure about the post-Do. If someone wants to share a room, I am open to that, otherwise I'll likely revisit Osaka.
