I think I once read they're toying with the thought of following ANA's decision to buy 737NGs eventually. However, also A320s are possible of course. As for the busses, I believe they have just about ordered enough 763s (eight in July 03) to get rid of the oldest A300s. Furthermore they are supposed to be a strong candidate for the 7E7 as an eventual replacement for the 306s and the 763s.

I think JAL is planning on keeping the JAS's A300-600R fleet as they are still valuable domestic workforce in the medium market along with B777 and B767s.
After JAL is complete with the merger with JAS, they will go through a phase of fleet simplification and A300-B4 models will more than likely be retired along with DC-10s and MD-11s by sometime in 2006.
