That has to make the crew and pax feel good. I'm curious, Skymark is a British airline isn't it? Do they fly to Japan with a stop over somewhere?

Nevermind about the Skymarks question. See what happens when you ask a question after you just wake up, eaten no food and decide not to look up simple information?

First time I saw this was at NRT and a Korean Air jet was pushing back ... I thought it was some sort of wartime repentance but no, they do it for everyone!

AWESOME SHOT! So JAL planes are named after stars? Its great to see Deneb on that plane, since Astronomy is another thing I love! Gotta be paying attention to JAL planes fron now on.

Oh, yes it is a very Japanese traditional way to send those passengers off.
And to my friend in Puerto rico, seems that only a few 777s are left in old colours, and in new colours, the names of the stars are gone...

Nice photo. For those that don't know, the aircraft is called Deneb, and have a cygnus because, Deneb is the name of the most bright star of the constellation Cygnus =)

Although JAL is phasing out this color scheme, this B777-346 looks great.

I recently went to Japan and visited haneda domestic airport and narita international airport. They both have huge observation decks where you get some fantastic photos - one of 3 extended jal 777's , one rotating, one in the gate, and one taxiing......fantastic

A plane has been sitting on the run way for an hour - waiting for bad weather (heavy thunderstoms to subside)before take-off. In such a scenario, who clears the plane to fly? The traffic controllers or the captain? It has been reported in the media that the captain of the ill-fated Kenyan decided to depart meanwhile other airlines were waiting for the weather to improve. How can a pilot decide to fly knowing the weather is bad? Who calls the short? The weather men or the aircraft captain?
