All Nippon to Begin 787 Flights to U.S. Next Fiscal Year

http://news.businessweek.com/article...SNBPKC92BHPO2D
Quote:
All Nippon Airways Co. plans to begin operating flights on Boeing Co.'s 787 Dreamliner to the U.S. starting next fiscal year as it seeks to meet rising travel demand with the fuel-efficient jet.

Asia's largest listed airline by sales will make the flights from Tokyo's Narita International airport to Seattle, Washington and San Jose, California, starting in the year from April 1, it said in a statement today.

All Nippon, the first to operate Boeing's composite-plastic plane commercially, announced the new flights after saying last week postponed delivery of a third Dreamliner would delay the start of 787 services to Beijing by a month. The airline is counting on the plane to cut fuel costs.

“There is strong demand for flights to San Francisco now, so we are expecting solid demand for our Seattle and San Jose flights, too,” President Shinichiro Ito told reporters today in Tokyo.

Japan Airlines aims for 140 bil. yen operating profit in FY 2013
February 16, 2012

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- New Japan Airlines Co. President Yoshiharu Ueki said Wednesday that the carrier, now undergoing rehabilitation after filing for bankruptcy in 2010, aims to raise its operating profit to 140 billion yen in fiscal 2013.

In announcing a five-year management plan through March 2017, the company said it will also seek to achieve an operating profit ratio to 10 percent or more during the period and a capital adequacy ratio of 50 percent or more by the end of fiscal 2016.

"Our company is still at the stage of making an ascent and we must shift to stable cruise flight from now on," said Ueki, who assumed the presidency Wednesday, succeeding Masaru Onishi.

"My intention to make Japan Airlines the most popular company with customers and the most often chosen is clear," the 59-year-old president said.

In the new management launched the same day, Onishi became the company's chairman and his predecessor Kazuo Inamori became honorary chairman.

JAL said in its five-year plan it will focus its investments to international routes, especially those covering the United States, Europe and Southeast Asia, where demand is expected to grow, while cutting those for the domestic market as population grays.

It will raise its passenger transport capacity on international routes by 25 percent in fiscal 2016, and plans a 3 percent cut its domestic passenger transport capacity.

The airline will also spend some 478 billion yen over the next five years to introduce new aircraft including 29 Boeing 787s, an advanced fuel-efficient passenger jet, in the fiscal 2012 to 2016 period, the company said. It will also increase the orders for B-787s during the five years to 45 from 35.

In December 2012, JAL will launch a route connecting Narita airport and San Diego, and in March 2013, a route tying Narita and Helsinki.

While the company has been implementing a series of restructuring steps, such as terminating service on unprofitable air routes and cutting personnel, it said it will keep its personnel at the current 32,000 level throughout the planned five-year period.

Cut-rate carrier Peach starts flights
Kyodo

OSAKA — Low-cost carrier Peach Aviation Ltd. started operations Thursday, a move sure to intensify competition among air and ground transportation companies.

Describing its flights as "flying trains," the budget airline is aiming to attract passengers by offering low-priced tickets while cutting costs by providing minimal service and charging customers for extras such as meals and blankets.

The first flight took off from Peach's home base, Kansai International Airport in Osaka Prefecture, in the morning bound for New Chitose Airport near Sapporo. The carrier will operate three round-trip flights on that route and four round-trip flights a day connecting Kansai and Fukuoka.

The airline, partly owned by All Nippon Airways Co., plans to begin flights between Kansai and Nagasaki as well as Kagoshima by April, and flights between Kansai and Incheon International Airport near Seoul in May.

Prices for one-way tickets on the Kansai-Sapporo route range from 4,780 to 14,780, far cheaper than the 11,800 to 41,300 offered by major airlines ANA and Japan Airlines Co.

On the Kansai-Fukuoka route, one-way tickets cost 3,780 to 11,780, also cheaper than the roughly 10,000 to 21,900 charged by ANA and JAL.

The price is also competitive compared with bullet trains, which cost around 14,000 between Shin-Osaka Station and Hakata Station in Fukuoka, as well as expressway buses with fares of about 4,000 on similar routes.

To cope with the new competition, Skymark Airlines Inc. has said it will offer one-way tickets for as low as 3,800 for flights that it will launch March 25 between Kansai and Sapporo as well as Naha, Okinawa Prefecture.

Jetstar Japan Co., set up by JAL, the Qantas Group of Australia and trading house Mitsubishi Corp., will start services in July, while AirAsia Japan Co., another budget airline owned partly by ANA, plans to commence flights in Japan in August.

The newcomers will likely prompt major airlines to cut fares, observers say.

"The move will certainly benefit consumers" by prompting existing airlines such as JAL and ANA to offer lower fares, said Yoshihisa Akai, representative director of Japan Aviation Management Research.

Meanwhile, for low-cost carriers to become as popular in Japan as in the United States and Europe, in which their combined market share accounts for around 30 percent, the government and smaller airports will need to reduce costs for airlines, such as fuel taxes and airport fees that are set higher than overseas, Akai said.

Japan Airlines, the flag-carrier that went bust in one of the nation's biggest-ever bankruptcies, is aiming to re-list its shares by September, the Nikkei business daily reported Friday.

The airline, whose shares were delisted in February 2010, will file an application with the Tokyo Stock Exchange this month with plans to have its stock publicly traded again on September 19, the report said.


JAL went bankrupt in January 2010 with debts totalling 2.32 trillion yen (US$29 billion), but it continued flying during an overhaul that included massive cuts to jobs and routes.


It exited bankruptcy protection last year and logged an annual net profit of US$2.3 billion in the fiscal year to March 2012.


The airline's market value after the float would be between 600 billion and 700 billion yen, vaulting it ahead of rival All Nippon Airways' market capitalisation of roughly 550 billion yen, the report said.


JAL's estimated value would be about twice the 350 billion yen in public funds that were used during its restructuring, the Nikkei said.


A spokesman for the carrier told AFP that "no official decision has been made" on a new listing.

Japan Airlines (JAL) has adjusted its international route and flight frequencies for this financial year, it said in a statement.

The carrier confirmed it will launch 4X-weekly Tokyo Narita (NRT)-San Diego, Calif. Dec. 2, which will be a jointly served with oneworld partner American Airlines


JAL will increase its NRT-New Delhi service to daily Oct. 28, initially using the Boeing 777-200ER on three of seven flights a week through Nov. 30. After that, the 787-9 will take over the route.

ANA swaps 4 787-8's for -9's
(WCARN.com, June 19)


Quote:
All Nippon Airways (ANA) has adjusted its Boeing 787 order, replacing four -8s with the larger -9 variant.


ANA, the launch customer for the 787 Dreamliner, is keeping its total number of aircraft on order at 55, now split between 36 -8s and 19 -9s.


Four -8s that were scheduled for delivery beginning from ANA's 2013 fiscal year will now be replaced by -9s.


"The decision to order more of the larger 787-9 variant will give ANA greater flexibility as it expands its international route network," ANA said.


ANA has taken delivery of seven of the 55 aircraft. The aircraft entered service in October and has been operating domestic Japanese routes and Tokyo Haneda-Frankfurt, Germany.


The airline plans to launch long-haul 787 services from Tokyo to Seattle and San Jose on the U.S. West Coast in the current fiscal year.

Boeing 787's dimmable windows not dark enough, says ANA
(WCARN.com/Reuters, June 20)


Quote:
Boeing Co's launch customer for its 787 Dreamliner, Japan's All Nippon Airways says the plane's electronic dimmable windows are not dark enough for long haul flights and has asked the U.S. aircraft maker to come up with a way to make the plane's cabin darker.

The Japanese airline is looking to install pull down blinds on 787s already delivered, an industry source with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. That is one solution ANA is mulling for two Dreamliners operated on long haul routes, company spokesman Ryosei Nomura confirmed.


"For our passengers to have good sleep, we realised that it is important to offer appropriate darkness during flights especially for long haul," Nomura said.


ANA has ordered 55 787s, a replacement for the 767, making the new jetliner the centerpiece of its fleet plans for the next several years. The carbon composite plane is designed to be more fuel efficient and, therefore, cheaper to operate. It also boast higher cabin pressure and humidity in order to make flying more comfortable.


The 20 percent larger than standard dimmable windows, the first on a commercial passenger jet, darken but do not go opaque.


The U.S. planemaker declined to say whether other 787 customers had asked for darker windows or to discuss how it would meet ANA's request.


"Specific discussions between Boeing and our customers are considered proprietary and we cannot comment on them," Rob Henderson, a Boeing spokesman in Tokyo, said. "The response of our customers and the flying public to the larger, dimmable windows on the 787 has been very favourable," he added


Boeing so far has taken more than 850 orders for its 787, and says it will crank up production to at least 10 aircraft a year by the end of 2013. Glitches such as recent signs of delamination on the rear fuselage of some planes will not, it insists, further delay a project three years behind schedule. Delamination occurs when stress causes layered composite materials to separate.


ANA's local rival Japan Airlines is also a big customer for the 787, with four already flying international routes and another 41 of the jets on order. The carrier said so far it has not asked Boeing for darker windows.


"At this moment, we have not made any such request to Boeing," JAL spokeswoman, Sze Hunn Yap said.


The U.S. company accounts for around 90 percent of commercial plane sales in Japan, the biggest market share it has in any major aviation market.


Apart from the windows, ANA says it is happy with the seven 787s it operates. In the first six months of flying the aircraft on international routes, the plane burned 21 percent less fuel compared with a 767, the carrier said. Boeing's sales pitch claims a 20 percent fuel savings.


ANA added that a survey of passengers found that nine out of 10 said the plane met or exceeded their expectations.

Accident: ANA B763 at Tokyo on June 20th 2012, Hard Landing

(WCARN.com/The Aviation Herald, June 20)


Quote:
An ANA All Nippon Airways Boeing 767-300, registration JA610A performing flight NH-956 from Beijing (China) to Tokyo Narita (Japan) with 193 people on board, touched down on Narita Airport's runway 16R, bounced off and touched down a second time nose gear first before the aircraft settled on the runway at about 13:30L (04:30Z), rolled out and taxied to the apron.


No injuries occurred, the aircraft received substantial damage.


A first post flight examination revealed the fuselage skin received numerous serious creases just ahead of the wing root all around the circumference.


Japan's TSB confirmed the aircraft received substantial damage and opened an investigation into the accident.

Video's of the rough landing and the damage.






The damage looks bad. But apparently it's not that uncommon that this kind of cracks/wrinkles happen on rough landings. It can also be repaired without too much problems.
