Japan disasters prompt flight schedule cuts

4:17 pm on 29 March 2011

Japan Airlines has cut flights to Hawaii, China and South Korea after the massive earthquake and subsequent nuclear crisis caused a 25 percent drop in its international passenger numbers.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports the cuts at Tokyo's Narita Airport include paring back flights to Honolulu to 14 trips a week from 21.

The cuts will run from April 6th to about April 27th.
