SEATTLE, June 03, 2008 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Japan Airlines International (JAL) announced today that the airline will equip its entire current and future fleet of Boeing 777 jetliners with the Boeing Class 3 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), following a validation trial conducted over the past year.

JAL has 40 777s in service and has been operating the EFB on two 777s as part of a validation trial since June 2007. Retrofit kit installation for the remaining fleet of 777s will
begin in April 2009 and all installations should be complete by the end of the 2011.

JAL is scheduled to take delivery of three more 777-300ERs in 2008, all of which will be delivered with the EFB installed.


Congrats to JL for keeping up with the latest and greatest technology!

Delta has also opted for the EFB in their 777-200LR fleet and is considering retrofits for the 8 ER models.

in the 777 it a set of displays and computers that provide the crews with access to the aircraft flight manual, navigation charts, weather maps, flight planning software.

the A380, B777, and B787 are the only commercial aircraft that have fully integrated EFBs , but there are bolt on units available for most every plane.
