United and Continental are cutting Japan service over low demand

United and Continental airlines are the latest carriers to announce service cuts to Japan due to a steep drop off in demand following the nation’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.


The merged airlines will cut capacity to Japan by about 10 percent in April and 14 percent in May.


The airlines are making adjustments across the country, dropping multiple flights per week between four US cities and Japan. The launch of a second daily flight between Tokyo and San Francisco is also being delayed until April 27, according to spokeswoman Julie King.


Other major US carriers, including Delta and American Airlines, announced similar service cuts earlier in the week.
