JAL 744F

Thu Nov 18, 2004 4:42 pm

Does anybody have any info of which routes this ac is being used on? I guess they only have 1 so far so do they alternate it?

And I had a question about maintenance staff. But won't it just make a cost burden if for instance JL kept on flying 747-classics, and 744 into the same airport every other day? Because then they need the spares and the mechanics (maybe two groups depending on the circumstances on that day) It kind of makes me think of the JIC (Just in Case) production system.

the 744 (nice shiny aluminium body) was just taken delivery off less than a month ago and is mainly scheduled for use on NRT FRA NRT

Hailstone thanx

Can this be non-stop or does it land in ANC like the other 742 freighters?

Unlike KL, AF which go non-stop Japan-Europe, JL, at least according to its schedule, does a tech-stop at ANC.

JL bases basically its entire 744 fleet at NRT, so worry there about mx.

as carpethead points out, tech stops are still done at ANC - that is also what their latest schedule shows
