Delta Air Lines to reduce Japan capacity by 15-20%

Delta Air Lines stated it would reduce capacity to Japan by between 15% and 20% through May-2011, including the suspension of Tokyo service (Bloomberg/Associated Press/Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 22-Mar-2011). The reductions at Delta will have a net effect of USD250 million to USD400 million. Last week, Delta stated it would postpone new services from Los Angeles and Detroit to Japan which were launched in Feb-2011. The carrier stated it would restore service there as demand picks up again. Besides Tokyo, Delta also operates to Nagoya and Osaka.
