Interesting to see JAL ramping up DME while ANA is adding Moscow.

I wonder if there was an airport announcement from ANA.

It's just a "rumor"

I had not initially noticed, but Honolulu gets a capacity cut, going from 777-200ER to 767-300 and later to 7878-8. Slightly masked by the 77W for Golden Week and Obon. Feeling the A380 heat from the dark side?

or the result of the HA JV which JL plans to start some time in the 2nd quarter in 2019.

Feels like I'm late to the party. Didn't know JAL had A350s till now.
I was planning a flight from Tokyo to Kyushu in October, so it might be a chance to hop a ride of it if the schedule works out.

You are correct, JAL has zero A350 aircraft today. They have 31 A350 redemption vouchers, however.

Also don't forget the seasonal summer increase of NRT-ORD to 11x weekly to complement AA's (pathetic IMO) 3x weekly service. I, for one, far prefer the new evening NRT-ORD departure time (similar to all US routes except DFW and the present ORD), though I find the flight numbering choice of 8056/8055 rather weird. Did they really run out of double-digit flight numbers?

These extra flights are always prefixed with 8. Not sure why they didn't use 8011 and 8010 though.
