    DELTA Suspends Detroit – Tokyo Haneda service from Sep 2011 to May 2012


    As per 06JUL11 GDS inventory display as of 1058 Pacific Time (GMT-7), DELTA is gradually closing reservation for Detroit – Tokyo Haneda route starting 31AUG11 (HND from 01SEP11). Reservation for all dates during this period will be fully closed by the end of this week, as some dates are still showing 1-3 seats bookable in Business Class or Economy class.
    The Skyteam member has received approval from the US Department of Transportation to temporary suspend this route once again, as it is struggling with the booking numbers after March 2011 Earthquake. It plans to resume this route as early as 01JUN12.
    Schedule until 30AUG11 as follows:
    DL627 DTW2015 – 2230+1HND 777 x136
    DL627 DTW2045 – 2300+1HND 777 136

    DL628 HND0655 – 0605DTW 777 D

    I wonder if UA might try to squeeze out a HDN slot since DL has been sporadically using theirs.

    DOT is specifically allowing DL to suspend service longer than the original dormancy limit.

    Probably more likely that they'll get an HND slot :p

  5. makes perfect sense now......i keep checking ATL - HND flights to beat the Sept. deadline for double points and today all flights started routing DTW and IAD and 2 stoppers to DTW instead of LAX. Price is holding fair, but that 2300 arrival stinks. Returns half and half between LAX and DTW with most LAX stops in Business

    Interesting.....I was getting everything through LAX when I looked for random dates a day before this thread started.

    When I tried NRT instead, the fares were crazy to the tune of $5K for M and even more for S and I.

    Just a small correction which I edited in original post. Service currently scheduled to resume from 26APR12
     
  8. Hawaii Air filed their reply to the American response for the Delta route dormancy and it appears slot times will be reevaluated.
