Are these new frames or reuse from former international config ones?

Are they slowly trying to phase out 737 service on the major/trunk routes?

I was wondering about the Class J width since it's 2-3 on the 737 so a seat less while 2-3-2 on the 787 which is the same as the non-sardine 787 configs. Surprised that is 2cm wider in 787 Class J, better than A350 even.

2-3-2 is the same as long haul PY. 2-4(2 is the more comfortable economy setup, which I think JAL is the only carrier left to run on long haul Y. Not surprisingly they have 3-3-3 in domestic Y, as the new version of the domestic 777 went for 3-4-3.

Ahhh, thanks. I spaced that the center cluster is 4 not 3 on International Y. 10 abreast isn't great but not the end of the world on the generally short stage lengths for domestic flights. As a back of the bus flyer, I keep my fingers crossed for long haul though.

Wait, aren't they also rolling out a bunch of Air Buses for flights between Fukuoka and Haneda? I saw multiple ads from JAL about it this month. Are the Air Buses a one off? I thought maybe they were switching.

They bought A350-900s for domestic operations. No change to those plans, first flight will be in September. I guess they needed capacity increase quicker than they could add the A350s.

How old are the 767s getting?

If it mainly flew domestic all that time, I guess the cycle count is pretty high, but would not seem to be in dire need of replacement.
