JAL extends flight adjustments due to low demand

19 Apr 2011

Japan Airlines (JAL) will continue to re-adjust international flight frequencies and capacities due to decreased demand in the aftermath of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami that struck the northeastern coast of Japan.

From now until the end of May, the carrier will not only suspend selected flights, but also use smaller aircraft to align demand with supply and costs. 

Between May 9 and 31, the Boeing B737-800 will be used on the Narita-Guam route, instead of the B767-300ER and the B767-300ER will be used on the Narita-Honolulu route instead of the B777-200ER. 

The following chart shows reduced flight frequencies in April and May:
