As far as I'm aware, JAA now operates only 747 Classics and 767s (I believe their DC10s are now gone, since JAL's are too). What is the future plan for the airline? 747-400s are probably overkill, since the Japan-Taiwan routes are around 2-3 hours. 777-300s perhaps, or 787s or (more likely) both?
Its fleet hasn't changed that much in recent years, so I was just curious as to what the future held for it.

Unofficial or not there are only two 743s in EG colors.
The 763s are used with JL crews.
Overkill or not, the 744s are indeed used for many of the EG flying as some 744s have been switched to a two-class configuration for Asian use.
The 773ERs will be used primarily for long-haul routes for the time being. Next up will be to convert transpac 744 flying to 773ERs.
