787 Tokyo

Will the 787 or even A350 ever take on the Tokyo route? I'd love to see VS fly to Japan again.

I could get behind this provided we didn't lose the NH award redemptions. Not sure I'd fly VS over NH at the same price, but the A350 might be tempting depending on the new seats. I don't think it's likely though - I imagine Delta and Air France/KLM would prefer VS feed their flights instead.

Japan to London on VS is point-to-point traffic. I struggle to think of any VS routes where LHR is the logical connecting point instead of flying trans-pacific or via the Middle East.

Tough to compete against BA European connections on one end and NH/JL connections on the other end. I have fond memories of VS to/from NRT, but even then I was only flying VS due to company policy (cheaper than BA)
