    at least CDG-HND is still on ...

    Plus AF/JL both still have both NRT & HND

    Still, I think of NRT-CDG as a flagship route for ANA, JAL, and AF.

    Maybe this is further indication that the Japanese economy is in bad shape.

    Or maybe that they just don't care to cater to international transit passengers as much anymore. And actually, with HND being more and more developed and serving many regional destinations, it's really more limited to long-haul international transit passengers that would be interested in the NRT-CDG route. AFAIK, most domestic Japanese flights go to HND, and there's probably few Japanese, except those living nearer to the NRT area and who can reach it by land who would prefer NRT-CDG. The rest of the Japanese would likely favor HND-CDG. From an outside perspective it may look bad, but I think looking at it from an internal and practical standpoint it likely makes perfect sense.
