On another note, NH will be increasing HND-CGK to 2x daily from Aug 1. Might be another reason JL downsizing NRT-CGK. But how did NH get the extra slot pair?

Any idea when JL updates the schedule? Right now, it still shows JL3 departs at the old time for flights after April.

It could be happening now? I get errors when searching for any flights departing from Sydney.

Yeah, bookings are back but still showing 773, so perhaps unrelated.

JAL usually refreshes the search results at 10am (as per the award availability thread). its 12pm here in tokyo, so it should be ok now.

No update to the aircraft type as yet. Might take a few days perhaps.

They can't just flip a switch and change it. They would need to first take care of existing customers booked in F first for example.

It shouldn't take that long for SYD. JL005/006/003/004 is a bigger mess with all sorts of missed connections in all classes.
