It never seems to get better for JAL. In addition to the pain they’ve gone through, they’ve also taken an axe to some more of their international pairs (15 more, taking it to 28), and suspending 30 (taking it to 50) domestic pairs to reduce its network and costs, along with 11 oversees offices and 8 domestic bases
JAL is attempting to push the airline back to profitability within a year, rather than the stated 3.
Meanwhile to shave more costs, JAL will outsource it’s maintenance, putting more workers on the line – however in request to retire staff, it seems people want to jump ship with 3700 people requesting earlier retirement – 1000 more than actually needed.
Lets hope JAL can turn this around. However, one year can be a very short amount of time….
