JAL To Delay 747-400 Retirement

Japan Airlines is delaying the retirement of their 747-446 fleet until the end of February 2011.  All of the Japan-HNL flights were to be switched 767-346ERs from November 1st.  However, JAZ76/75 from NRT is being kept as a 747-446 until next March, when it will switch to the 767-346ER.

The JAL news release of the revised winter changes.

It will be interesting to see if JAL subs 777-246ERs during peak traffic times like the Honolulu Marathon, New Year's holiday season, and Golden Week, on top of the additional charter flights.
