My point is depending on the time that the flight leaves Denver for Tokyo, a night in Denver might be a must. If the flight leaves at 8am, most people will need to fly in the night before, then catch the flight out. If the flight leaves denver at 8pm or something like that, then unfortunately DIA becomes a layover stop.

I also look to the future, if this endeavor turns out to be a success, it could open doors to other non-stop international flights which as others have stated, could bring more tourist dollars directly into Denver.

12:35pm -> 3:30p+1 ( a little after Noon) Depart DEN-NRT Return 5:35p -> 1:15p


So a real early flight into DEN should be able to connect to the flight with out a overnight. Same with the return, any flight after 4p would be good for outbound out of DEN for connecting Passengers.

If you are delay'ed getting into DEN, They Continue you on to LAX, SFO, SEA, and have you connect there for the early evening flights.

I see on the United schedules. This new Denver Tokyo flight is listed as a connector flight for passengers originating in the East. Which makes sense Denver is a major hub for United. Passengers now have another city to add to their list of connecting hubs for travel to Japan.

DIA is the 5th busiest airport in the world in terms of airplane traffic and 13th busiest in the world in terms of passenger traffic. We have a lot of people coming through Denver to get to other destinations so it is not just for people from Denver. Anyone from the east of Denver flying to Japan on United will likely be on this flight.

I think this is really neat. I didn't see how often the flight will be offered though - does anyone know?

Daily. 7days a week

No 'end' date So as long as they can fill it (mostly) with Local and connecting passengers it will continue.

Thanks! Wow - I wasn't sure they would have enough passengers to make a daily flight. I thought maybe it would be only a few times a week.
