JAL Fleet Plans - Whats Cookin'?

Thu May 20, 2004 11:20 pm

What are JAL up to regarding the fleet makeup - what are they getting rid of (the ex-JAS MD8xs, DC10-40, A300 etc?) and what do they have on order.

Do they have a 733ER order? I thought they did but that plane only has GE90s and i know the JAL fleet is PW4000 series powered.

What about the 747-400ER?

How many of the original 747-400Ds have been converted back to standard 747-400 specs (ie: they glued the winglets back on)?

Presumably there is a big 7E7 order in the pipeline - anyone gues how many?

Whats the 767 thing about - they have GE CF6 and PW4150 powered examples dont they? Arnt their 762s knocking on a bit now too?

Where are they going to use the 773ER to? And are they keeping the 772ER LHR flights? When are the J-Birds being retired? Seen a JAL MD11 a few times at LHR - i know they use them to ZRH sometimes too - where else do they use them to?

Any new routes?

Cheers guys,

What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Yes, JAL does have the 773ER on order... and they were more than happy to take the GE90 despite the PW4000
