Japan Airlines says it will shut its wholly owned JAL Express (JEX) subsidiary by October 1, 2014 by merging it into JAL itself.

JAL says it seeks to make the move to "stabilize the domestic business".

JEX operates a fleet of 42 737NG aircraft.

I always thought one of the reasons behind such subsidiaries in Japan was to allow the major carriers reduce labor and operational cost, and also allow the companies to independently grow by seeking out their own business activities which mainline might not be capable to focus on.

Interesting move. Does that have anything to do with LCC competition ?

I don't see what difference it makes if the 738's have the Express titles or not. Aircraft will still fly the same routes in the same all-Y configuration.

Kind of similar to when ANA shutdown Air Nippon and integrated their operations into ANA.

Quoting TC957 (Reply 2):
Aircraft will still fly the same routes in the same all-Y configuration.

True enough, but I believe they operate two types: all-Y & J-class+Y versions.

Does anyone have a break down of current operating flying JAL subsidiaries? Is JALways still in existence? Sometimes I recognise the need form a labour standpoint, but as the above poster highlighted unless there are major service level difference it just serves to blurt and confuse the primary brand and branding.

Perhaps as it grew, there was duplication of admin, and operational components between JL and JALexpress- it's come a full circle and will now be reintegrated
