JAL To Cut 16,000+ Jobs
In order to streamline their operations, Japan Airlines plans to eliminate over 16,000 jobs and over 30 flights. Some reports have flight cuts reaching 50.
The only possible affect on Hawai‘i is the NRT-KOA flight, JAZ70, operated by a 767-346ER. The return flight, JAZ79, makes a stop at HNL before returning to NRT.
With the addition of the 787, Japan Airlines also plans to retire their 747-446 fleet within the near future. Their fleet types will be simplified to the 737-846, 767-346ER, 777-246, 777-346, and 787-846.
