Sad news. However, I remember when I priced their flights, discovering that their fares to Bangkok, Singapore, etc., were little different from those offered by the major carriers after the add-ons were included.

Getting woken up every hour on an overnight flight by announcements, sub zero cabin temperatures and sneaky little conditions to get more money from the passenger.

Good riddance...

Narita airport is allegedly the most expensive in the world.

Not many airlines can afford it.

What's gonna happen next summer with the Olympics? Will be there enough flights?
