Have just joined and this is my first post on the board, so nice to 'meet' you all.
Does anyone know when JL's tri-jets are due from removal of service?
I really want to try and grab a flight on one before they go.
I heard it was 2005, but now someone mentioned 2006-7.
Anyone know a definite time-span for this?

The story of JAL retiring the MD-11's before the DC-10's is almost a perfect analogy for the parent outliving its ofspring. Truly sad in my opinion, but hey Thai744 means you have some time to hop on the dissappearing Diesel10's and by the way, welcome to our family.
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!
