They want to keep them. I know that three of them sound like a really strange decision but it fits in well with their scheduling of China flights from NGO. That is why there is only three but they want to keep them in the fleet.
So the data that you got in May 2004 is accurate, but they just kept all of them. The reason that they have a small fleet is that JL was one of the launch customers for the -300 model (which NH acquired more than JL)

The original JAL 767 order was for 9 aircraft with a mix of 200's and 300's. As mentioned they were one of the original 763 customers. The original order split was for 5 762/4 763 (if memory serves) but in the end only 3 762's were delivered.
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
