This week has been absolutely horrific for Japan, and for the world in general considering that what's happening with the earthquakes, tsunami and nuclear issues impacts everywhere else in some way or another. Really, we don't even have the words to describe how badly the last several days have been, when tragedy gets piled atop fresh tragedy.
In the travel sector, the freshest loss to Japan today has been the withdrawal of Delta's new direct routes from Detroit and Los Angeles to Tokyo-Haneda, the metropolis' smaller international airport, which only inaugurated a shiny new international terminal in October 2010. The flights have stopped for now, and are not schedule to resume until May 31 from Detroit, and June 2 from Los Angeles at the earliest.
