Jl772 (syd-nrt) 29/01/19

Iím looking at flights from Sydney to Tokyo around the end of January, and noticed on expertflyer.com that the JL flight is completely zeroed out on the 29th of January. Timetables suggest it is scheduled to operate, however itís not showing as available for purchase either through JAL or on any travel websites.

Interestingly, the same flight on the 28th and 30th has plenty of availability, so it seems strange that the flight would be completely full this far out.

Iím curious if there is a particular reason the flight on the 29th is so busy, or perhaps itís an indication that this flight is earmarked for cancellation?

Not sure if anyone on this forum is able to suggest why this may be the case, but Iíd be grateful for any thoughts.

likely a chartered out flight, for a sports event by a Japanese national team, or government. Sydney 7 is around that time.
