ANA Subs 777-281ER This Weekend

All Nippon Airways (ANA) substituted a 777-281ER today for its ANA1052/1051 NRT-HNL flights, and looks to be for the rest of the weekend. It's possibly for the Honolulu Marathon, which several thousand Japanese runners will participate in on Sunday.

JA707A (c/n 27037) made today's flight, and is seen above returning to NRT as ANA1051 on Runway 8R.

You are correct, it is indeed substituting for for the higher loads due to the Marathon! Also, the 777 will replace certain 763 flights over the Xmas-NY period.

Nice shot! Along with the 777, ANA will also be bringing in their 747's latter this month. This will be an additional flight along with 1051/1052.

That would explain why there are also 4 JAL B744 on the North Ramp.
