JAL in crisis - useful links

In the biggest airline bankruptcy since the fallout from 9/11 claimed Northwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines on 19 January succumbed to the weight of its ¥2.3 trillion ($25.2 billion) debt and filed for bankruptcy protection. It is continuing to operate as it undergoes a financial restructuring plan led by a government-backed body.

JAL hopes to emerge from bankruptcy protection as a radically transformed operation built around a fleet renewed from "low-efficiency large aircraft to high-efficiency small aircraft".  For more on this story click here.
