JAL 777s

Do they operate International routes? From what I see in A.net they are mostly in Haneda.

I'm not sure if they operate their 777-200As on domestic Asian routes. You should check The777Man's website about the Triple7; it will provide you at which destinations the JAL 777s land.

JAL is to receive 298t 777-200ERs (with GE90-94B engines). These airplanes will be operated on long-haul routes, like what ANA iniated on the US routes a bit over one year ago (NRT-ORD).

It's a pitty we don't see JAL 777 not very often. It seems to be limited to the domestic market.

The MD11 "JBird" is also a model we don't see very often. recently, I was lucky enough to spot a JL MD11 at Schiphol, AMS. It's also impressive and nice to see.

There are only two airlines in the world which have not operated international routes with 777. JAL and JAS.
However, JAL is going to replace MD11s (for international routes) with 767-300ERs and 777-200ERs, so you can see it outside Japan in a few years.
