Delta Air Lines continues to adjust its network to Japan, with plans to exit the Fukuoka market in May.The SkyTeam Alliance carrier will end its daily service to Fukuoka from Honolulu with a Boeing 767-300ER on 7 May, FlightGlobal schedules data shows. It has served the route since 2011.The move follows an evaluation of "how to best deploy" aircraft, says Delta. While exiting the Fukuoka market, the airline will return to the Detroit-Honolulu route in June.In addition, Delta will resume service between Seattle Tacoma and Osaka in April after a six-year hiatus.
