JAPAN AIRLINES (JAL) HAS TAKEN DELIVERY of its first Boeing 737-400. The aircraft, the first of four 737-400s ordered by the Japanese flag carrier, will enter service in September on domestic routes, primarily from Osaka's Kansai International Airport. The services will be operated in conjunction with Japan TransOcean Air, 51%-owned by JAL. The airline last took delivery of a Boeing narrow body airliner more than 25 years ago - a Boeing 727 in 1969.
