I really hate to enter the fray with facts, when conjecture obviously is the communique of preference here.

The only reason the widebody flying was cut back (not now referring to the change from KIX/NGO to NRT/KIX), was because of one simple little fact; EBA to EBD are scheduled to rotate through MNL for their 'C' checks (and other stuff). The result is that JQ is now working on the premise that it will be one widebody aircraft short until Feb, 09.

So the bean-counters had to sit and decide which of our destinations to cutback (more than likely, temporarily) until we're back to full strength.

Yields, load factors, costs and ultimately profits were all examined before the final mix of 'reduced' services was decided.

My guess is that the A330 will go back to one, if not both, axed destinations (KUL/SGN) once all puppies are back in the dog house.

Now back to rumour and gossip...

Oh, BTW Qanchor, where in the IATA world is TSN? I'm pretty sure that wherever it is, JQ don't go there - yet.
