Capturing an interesting moment in operations, intersection of tradition and technology. Do ANA pilots wear their white gloves while flying?

This kind of "good-bye" saying should be introduced to every airline

Interesting capture, can anyone explain why they are saluting the aircraft / pilot? Is it customary or is there a VIP on board?

It's a standard practice in Japan, to "salute" the departing aircraft and crew. Note that the pilot also wears white gloves.

To the person from France, it is a sign to the flight crew that they are cleared to taxi and that they are responsible to watch where they are going.
