Japan Airlines (JAL) has announced adjustments made to its international route and flight frequency plans for fiscal year 2012.
JAL has set the date for the launch of its new nonstop service between Tokyo (Narita) and San Diego as Dec 2, 2012, flying four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. This will be a joint business service with fellow oneworld airline member and joint business partner American Airlines (American).
JAL will also add two more weekly round-trip flights between Tokyo (Narita) and New Delhi, making the route a daily service from Oct 28, 2012. To accommodate more high-yield corporate demand, JAL will change the aircraft deployed on the route to the larger 777-200ER which also offers Premium Economy service. The wide-body 777-200ER will initially be used on three of seven flights a week from Oct 28 to Nov 30, until the full switchover from the 787-8 currently assigned to the route.
