Looks like United Airlines will be transferring one of its twice-daily San Francisco-Tokyo/Narita service to Tokyo/Haneda from 26 October 2014 after the USDOT granted the airline to operate to Haneda Airport. The new daily service will operate late-afternoon from SFO (evening arrival in Tokyo), midnight from Tokyo (late-afternoon to early-evening arrival in SFO) on board Boeing 777, and reservations for this flight will be opened shortly. Schedule:

UA875 SFO1735 – 2205+1HND 777 D
UA876 HND0005 – 1715-1SFO 777 D

UA876 to start fro 28OCT14.

From 26 October, one SFO-NRT trip will remain in service, canceling UA852/853.

UA837 SFO1100 – 1515+1NRT 744 D
UA838 NRT1755 – 1000SFO 744 D

This flight will compete with JAL's service between HND and SFO (JL1/2), on board Boeing 787.

JL002 HND0005 - 1725-1SFO 787 D
JL001 SFO1910 - 2220+1HND 787 D

Source

If it were me, I would retime either one of those flights so that one of them can arrive in Tokyo mid-afternoon and arrive in SFO in the morning... something like:

JL002 HND1405 - 0725SFO 787 D
JL001 SFO0910 - 1220+1HND 787 D

Or are those time slots for HND too crowded already?

HND to USA can only operate in the 2300-0700 time period, as bilateral negotiations between the two countries have failed to agree to terms on daytime flights. The main sticking point is that everyone wants to move everything at once, but HND does not have the terminal capacity yet. The most recent HND int'l daytime allowance has 4 freq set aside for USA carriers (and 4 for Japanese), the same nighttime allowance as of today, but again that's not enough. So no one moves.

April 2014 saw a record number of visitors to Japan, a 33% increase over last year.

The Japan National Tourism Organization announced the figures for the number of visitors to Japan for April 2014 period. It was a record month with 1,231,500 visitors, a 33% increase over April 2013. This is the second time in a row they have recorded the highest number of visitors in a month as March also saw over a million foreign tourists flock to Japan. The number of international visitors to Tokyo Haneda Airport also increased by 20%. However the government’s aim to attract 20 million foreign visitors annually by 2020 will be unreachable unless measures to improve accommodation, the traffic network and infrastructure are taken.

Tokyo Narita Airport: Total Passenger Traffic For 2013 reaches a record 36.04 million

The number of passengers (both international and domestic) reaches a record 36,040,000 during the 2013 period (2013 March to 2014 March). This is the first time in 6 years the previous record was broken. The traffic movements also reached a record 226,182 departures and arrivals. According to the Narita International Airport Corporation, the cheap yen was the main reason for rising international passenger traffic, whilst the Low Cost Carriers widening their domestic networks was the reason for the 39% increase in domestic passengers.

Narita Airport Terminal 2 renovation



Between November 2014 and June 2015 in a 1st stage and March 2016, 2nd stage.

Narita int'l arrivals lobby to undergo revamp ahead of 2020 Olympics



CHIBA (Kyodo) -- The international arrivals lobby of Terminal 2 at Narita International Airport will undergo its first complete renovation since opening in 1992, the airport operator announced on Friday.

The 900 million yen refurbishment is scheduled to begin in November and finish in phases by March 2016, ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, and will not interfere with normal airport operations as it will be implemented during overnight hours, Narita International Airport Corp. (NAA) said.

The color scheme of the ceiling, walls and flooring of the arrivals lobby will be brightened from the original gray to shades of white, and approximately 1,300 LED fixtures will be installed for lighting, according to NAA. Ceiling decorations in the two atria will incorporate traditional paper screens as an expression of Japanese aesthetics.

"We hope that the renovated areas will make a good impression on international visitors as they arrive in Japan," said an NAA representative.

Narita airport, the country's largest international gateway serving Tokyo, has two passenger terminals. Terminal 1 was reopened in 2006 after extensive renovations.

I'm curious where the whole NRT vs HND international flights will end up. LHR has seen both JL and NH move their flights to HND, whilst BA still operate to both. Anybody got any insights?

HND has been revived as an alternate international gateway to Tokyo due to its proximity to its largest business and leisure centers like Shinjuku, Shibuya, and Odaiba, as well as its proximity to Yokohama and Kanagawa Prefecture, a heavily industrial area. Not to mention, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics has boosted its opportunities to reappraise its value as a major hub... and Narita will remain as a major international hub (given JAL's and ANA's heavy presence there). There will be airlines that want to do double or multiple daily frequencies to Tokyo (given its importance as a business center), so airlines will have choices to make to serve this important hub. HND and NRT will continue to complement each other, and their presence will be ever more important as the Olympiad nears.

Hmmm... that could be a really tough negotiation, especially that an abundance of domestic ops take place during the day. And adding international flights to the mix can really cause added strain to an already crowded airport. By the way, should the plan push through, to which destinations would you like to see those flights operate to?

Oh! I didn't know that HND is on such a fancy reclaimed land.

It's a Qatar Amiri Flight (a VIP airline owned and operated by the government of Qatar) aircraft, not Qatar Airways. It's a bit strange actually that they use the exact same livery.

Oh and it's an A310, not an A319.

Yep. Those two are exactly the peculiarities of that parked aircraft. The sharklets on that aircraft can be typically found on the A320 family of aircraft, not on an A310... And yes, the Qatar Amiri flight looks exactly the same as the regular Qatar Airways livery. Not to mention, its relative size to the rest of the aircraft parked seems to be dwarfed, that's why I thought it was an A319... Thanks for clearing it up for me.

Any 2 engined plane would look small standing next to 3 777-300s.

As Qatar Airways is state owned and the country is ruled by the Emir. See it as a bit of promotion for the country and the airline.


ps.
Most A310 that are still flying have the standard Airbus wingtip fences. All the later built came equipped with those from the factory. They had them before the 1st A320 took flight.


@Le Male
It's not just on reclaimed land, part of the runway in the foreground is on a steel pier.
