I think the Mexican A.netters don't know that I am taking about so I will state it in brief. The JL11/12 flight to MEX flies twice weekly via YVR to MEX and there is one heading down there as I write thig but why has a new generation jumbo from Japan Airlines never flown to MEX? The new generation jumbo starts from JA8910-8922 and they have been to YVR on numerous occasions. For instance, JA8917,8920 are the two that I have spotted.
Is there a minor difference in the configuration for these two different types of 744? Or is it the difference of IFE or is it merely because of scheduling? JL 18 and 12 leave NRT only 25 minutes or so apart of each other but its strange that the Jumbo's flying to MEX are always equipped with MAGIC II and they are the JA80xx generations. Occasionally, I think I saw JL8901 fly to MEX the other week but that is not the new type as they start from JL8910. Does anybody know any information on this?
