I don't think the A300s will be going anytime soon. The Chairman (President) of the new company has indicated that future fleet plans will include both Airbus and Boeing. JAL will not want to spend all that money to replace A300s with 767s now. This merger is about cutting costs. The benefits of fleet commonality could be wiped out by a fleet replacement.
