Haneda airport JAL and ANA aircrafts taxiingJapan Airlines (JL) and All Nippon Airways (NH) on December 16 revealed the respective seat capacity offered during the New Year holiday period from December 23, 2010 to January 5, 2011. The consolidated capacity offered by the two airlines declined by 15.8 percent year-on-year to 688,838 seats. The total number of bookings decreased by 22.7 percent to 533,801, bringing the booking rate down by 6.9 percentage points to 77.5 percent. Apparently, there is a difference in a business performance between Japan Airlines which is downsizing its operations amid the restructuring efforts and All Nippon Airways which is aiming for a further growth with its international operations as its main business pillar. Both airlines, however, seem to suffer from some negative impacts such as the unfavorable calendar dates over the New Year holiday and the pressing issue of territorial rights over the Senkaku Islands with China.

JAL decreased its transport capacity by 28.4 percent to 403,890 seats and the number of bookings fell by 32.6 percent to 324,930. However, the booking rate, although it declined by 5.0 percentage points, remains at 80.5 percent. By destinations, the airline’s Honolulu route sees a booking rate increasing by 1.7 percentage points to 91.1 percent. The Guam route shows a booking rate of 88.1 percent, down by 1.4 percentage points.

On the other hand, ANA substantially increased its seat capacity by 12.0 percent to 284,948, whilst the number of bookings edged up only by 0.1 percent to 208,871, registering its booking rate of 73.3 percent, down by 8.7 percentage points. By destinations, the airline’s Europe and China routes show a double-digit decline in terms of the booking rate. The Honolulu route, however, enjoys a booking rate of 95.4 percent, up by 4.2 percentage points, beating JAL on the same route.

Meanwhile, in terms of domestic routes, JAL reduced its transport capacity by 22.0 percent to 1,937,468 seats. As the number of bookings fell by smaller 18.2 percent to 1,049,772, the booking rate was up by 2.5 percentage points to 54.2 percent. ANA, on the other hand, increased its seat capacity by 4.2 percent to 2,608,864. With the number of bookings increasing by 6.3 percent to 1,358,046, the airline’s booking rate posts an increase of 1.0 percentage point to 52.1 percent. The two airlines together bring the total seat capacity of 4,546,332, down by 8.9 percent. The aggregate number of bookings made on the two airlines declined by 6.0 percent with a booking rate of 53.0 percent, up by 1.6 percentage points.
