Indeed it's! It's better than most of the European LCC terminals.

Do you think the interiors of European LCC terminals can be redone similar to what KIX T2 looks like? And just a little question: how are the new Japanese LCCs doing, especially with like three new airlines set up the past year?

They can be, however it will be extra cost that is not today's "fashion".

As far as I heard, they are doing pretty fine. However, I think that your Japanese friends will give more detailed answer

Interesting. But I think improving such terminals to KIX's standard would really entice even more people to ride the LCCs, and it would really improve a passenger's image concerning LCCs and airport terminals altogether for it would allow them to say that LCC services aren't bad to begin with.

Truly sad. It's like saying goodbye to a very successful aircraft after so many years in service... hopefully, that'll mean a great beginning to increase their B777s and B787s even further to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions in the long run.

Aviation has spoken with JALs chairman about the replacement of the 777.

Quote:
JAL May Divide 777 Replacement Order

Japan Airlines is discussing a major order with Boeing and Airbus for the eventual replacement of its Boeing 777 fleet.

Fleet replacement for the existing 777s is not due to begin until 2019.

Onishi says a wide range of aircraft will be considered as replacements—the 787-9, 787-10X and 777-9X on the Boeing side, as well as the Airbus A350-900 and -1000.

JAL is looking at an order of 40-plus aircraft, says Onishi. Ideally, the carrier would like to replace the 777s with a single package deal, and that is where it will start negotiating. However, if it cannot achieve a package deal, it will address the domestic 777 fleet first, Onishi says.
full article:
http://www.aviationweek.com/Article...._p0-584405.xml

So another confirmation that they are talking with Airbus, but also with Boeing. I think this one could go either way, including a split order.


And Reuters talks with ANA's chief about the same topic.

Quote:
ANA chief says A350 'good candidate' to replace Boeing 777s

Japan's All Nippon Airways considers the Airbus A350 a "good candidate" to replace some Boeing 777s, its chief executive said on Sunday, in a sign that the airline could place its first order for Airbus big jets.

Boeing is offering a revamped version of its best-selling wide-body jet, the 777, but so far ANA is not "aggressively" looking at the so-called 777-9X upgraded model, Shinobe said.
Full article:
http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/...9510B420130602

Not in the article but ANA will also have a good look at the 787-10X, especially as a replacement for the domestics 777s and with a bit of a delay for the (see my previous post on this page) the 747-400Ds. This could also become a split order.

Japan Airlines contests Haneda slot allocation

TOKYO, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Japan Airlines on Friday asked regulators for a formal review of a government decision to award rival ANA Holdings more than half of new landing slots at Tokyo's bustling Haneda airport, saying it will crimp future earnings.

JAL received five landing and take-off slots at Tokyo International Airport compared with ANA's 11, after ANA argued a taxpayer-funded bailout has given JAL a competitive edge.

The decision, made this week, could cost JAL 6 billion yen ($61.67 million) a year in operating profit, said JAL President Yoshiharu Ueki, who called the allocation "skewed."

"We have asked regulators to explain whether they gave consideration to the convenience of travellers and the impact on airline alliances in making their decision," Ueki said at a press conference at the carrier's headquarters on Friday.

JAL recorded operating profit of 22 billion yen in the three months to June 30, whereas ANA recorded a loss of 5.6 billion yen.

The allocation gives ANA, Japan's largest carrier, the opportunity to ply new routes in Asia from the world's fourth-busiest hub.

It also gives Star Alliance, of which ANA is a member, 52 percent of daytime international flights from 47 percent. It lowers the share of Oneworld, of which JAL is a member, to 25 percent from just under 33 percent.

There are four unallocated slots - for U.S. destinations - of which JAL expects two, Ueki said.

ANA lobbied for a ruling in its favour, arguing that JAL's $3.5 billion bailout wiped out most of its debt and left it with tax credits that gave it the financial clout to beat ANA in any fare-price war.

JAL, once Asia's biggest carrier, countered that competition issues should be settled through means other than slot allocations which remain valid for as long as the holder stays in business.

I think given the continuing problems with Japan Airlines, ANA will likely keep all 11 of the 20 landing slots newly allocated at Haneda. And ANA will use them for two reasons:

1. Open a flight from London-Heathrow to Haneda.
2. Transfer the long-range international flights from Los Angeles and San Francisco using 777-300ER's so they land at Haneda, not Narita. That would be HUGELY profitable for ANA since passengers won't have to deal with the ground transportation issues from Narita back to central Tokyo. (It should be noted that despite Haneda's longest runways being just under 10,000 feet long, because the flights from Haneda to the US West Coast are flying with a tailwind, I don't expect passenger/cargo weight restrictions.)
