Hello Ifc, Japan Airlines has announced a new Seattle route starting on March 31, 2019. The route will be operated by a 787-8 and will be Japan Airlines 6th location on the US west coast. This route will also be operated by American Airlines. This route is currently operated daily by All Nippon Airlines and Delta, (Delta’s 767-300ER and ANA’s 787-8). Japan Airlines previously flew from Tokyo to Seattle and back, but the route was suspended in 1992. The Alaska Airlines codeshare will allow for 40+ connections from this flight. What do you guys think about this route? Is it a good or bad move for JAL and do you think it is a market they could profit in?
Btw, this is my first ever Real World Aviation topic, so if i did anything wrong, please correct me:) thanks.
