    Strong wind is expected in the evening at around those flights' arrival time. No idea about compensation as it is due to weather which is beyond JAL's control

    Supposedly the typhoon-force winds are going to be in the 15:00 to 21:00 time frame today.

    Also, "Western Time?"

    Yea stupid! But I don't get it why NH's LAX-NRT flight isn't delayed till tomorrow? Are they planning to just diver to CTS? Why didn't JAL do that?

    So are they going to use the Euro config 773 on tomorrow's US flight and use US config 773 on Euro flight the next day? :eek:

    they are really proactive in canceling their flights this time lol I guess that's better for the passengers so they know for sure it's cancelled and not have to wait at the airport and can make plans ahead of time

    Bloomberg just bleeped that ANA is up to 275 domestic cancellations, with 33,600 passengers affected. But their international flights don't seem to be affected at all yet.

    OMG fumitani you would love to be the pax! I don't want to be ever on flights like this. The 2nd landing is even more scary than the go around one. And this was 2 days ago...you could only imagine how it would be like today :eek:

    Add to that the fact that the bridge to KIX and the train to UKB are both shut down, and I would expect that the Osaka Monorail is out of service as well.

    The metro is still generally running ok in Tokyo, but most of the surface lines are messed up somehow.
