Japan Airlines eliminates direct flights to Amsterdam, San Francisco

Bad news for frequent flyers on JAL: starting in September, the airline is cutting direct flights between Tokyo and Amsterdam, Rome, Milan and San Francisco, and between Osaka and Guam, Hong Kong and Beijing. It’s too bad, I really liked JAL and frequently fly between Tokyo and San Francisco.

Update: JAL will, however, be flying from Haneda to San Francisco. Which is actually better. Yay.

  1. Hi.
    I did a little research about the air ticket yesterday and found the following information very surprising. Usually, a ticket from Tokyo to JFK would cost approximately $1500 (one-way), while the cost for SGN (Vietnam) to JFK (transit at Narita) would cost only $1200. I was speechless. I planned to buy two separate tickets: SGN->TKY then TKY->JFK so I would spend a week in Japan. However, the two separate tickets’ price were out of my reach. I was confused and didn’t know why would this happen. I mean, literally, the distance between SGN to JFK is much longer than the one betweek TKY to JFK, why would it be cheaper?!!
    And I’ve been reading your blog for a while. Amazing job. Please keep this up

Last, you go hell-for-leather for the best deal. A search for “get travel advice” on Google throws back 80 million results; the market is packed with brands to get you what you need. So to help winnow down the choices, following are a few of the better sites that I’ve used to eke out pre-trip advice, including suggestions for a trip to QuĂ©bec next month where I’ll literally only have a half day to explore. Note that I don’t really go into too much detail about social-networking sites like Facebook, Bebo, and Twitter, where the efficacy of your search for advice can depend on the breadth of your network, plus your own engagement and activity within those networks. If you have lots of well-traveled friends, tap into their font of travel wisdom. If not—or in addition—the below resources might help you get the info you need without too much extra legwork.
