The 772 flights aren't additional flights as Bigo747 states in his post, they will just replace the JL403/404 MD-11 (which replaced the 744) flights on select days on August 1. They do look beautiful indeed. I guess with the economic downturn in Japan & globally and the possibility of war, there's been a drop in passenger traffic between London & Tokyo.
How many 772ERs is JAL receiving, and what other routes are they expected to fly on?

The traffic cant be that bad - JL has 2 daily's on most days (mayb everyday i dunno) also daily to KIX, and used 2 have 3 or 4 times a week to NGO with MD-11's before 9/11. BA has 2 dailys 2 NRT (how come they cut places like KIX, NGO and SEL from their network a couple of yrs ago?). Also VS fly daily with A340-300/600 and NH with 747-400's. NH used 2 fly 4 times or so per week to KIX but stopped after 9/11. Even if JL drpos 2 777, there r still tons of seats 2 Japan from Heathrow - is London Japan's No 1 long haul city???
