I heard on the news tonight (11 pm, Sunday May 8th) here in NY City TV news that a JAL 747 from NRT to JFK, not long after takeoff and reaching 33,000 feet, had to make an emergency landing at Sapparo due to depressurization. No one was apparently injured, but the a/c had to drop to 10000 feet in a matter of minutes. JAL spokespeople said it was a serious problem. No further info was given. Anybody else here of this, which a/c, confirm the story and follow up?

Actually, the flight was JFK to NRT and was near the northern island of Hokkaido when the decompression occured at FL360.
The aircraft was 744 JA8072.
According to the JL website, the investigation is pending.

Another black eye for JAL. Thankfully, unless I'm mistaken, no one has been killed in their recent spate of mishaps.

Indeed, it's one thing to enter an active runway or start take-off without ATC permission. There's been tail strikes, short circuits, and now decompression. JL has submitted to the Japan Transport Ministry a report on improvements. What improvements?

It seems incidents are getting worse. I hope the reverse starts happening before an aircraft falls out of the sky.

My information is that the flight was GRU-JFK-NRT (JAL 47), correct?

Rgs,
