JAL maintains lead at Narita


Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation has published Narita traffic data for the week ending May 25 2009. It shows JAL remains the biggest airlines operating at NRT, by both capacity and frequency. JAL has 21.9% share of frequency and 20.5% share of seats at NRT, while ANA has 19% share of frequency and only 14.5% share seats.

This is mainly because ANA operates much smaller aircraft than JAL does. It will be interesting to see the data after JAL has completed the restructuring of its fleet. Switching from US flights from 744 to 773 alone means a roughly 23% drop in capacity. This probably means JAL's share at NRT will look more like ANA's in the coming years.
