If you are fond of air traveling, you might already know that Asian airlines become better, if not the best ones in the world. One of the most remarkable Asian air carriers is Japan Airlines - it is simply the largest one.
The history of Japan Airlines began in 1951. Nowadays, Japan Airlines planes are Boeing 737s, 747s, 767s and 777s; McDonnel Douglas DC-10s, MD-81s, MD-87s and MD-90s and Airbus A300s. Japan Airlines still has the greatest 'collection' of Boeing 747 aircrafts. Former Japan Airlines Boeing 747SR is a NASA Shuttle Carrier today. In 2008 an addition to this fleet is expected, which consists of 30 Boeing 787 airliners. All these aircrafts are well maintained and kept in good condition.
A remarkable feature of Japan Airlines fleet is thematic design of the certain planes, which includes not only fuselage painting, but also special livery design. Examples of such creativity are well-known Adidas soccer airliner or special "Reso'Cha'" liners used in holiday routes.
With the status of the largest Asian airline it seems to be self-explaining that Japan Airlines has a wide choice of Asian destinations. Great amount of Japanese and Chinese landings is extended with Korean and Indian routes. Flights to Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam or Thailand are also performed. Some European destinations are supported: flights to France, Germany, Italy, Rome, Netherlands, Russia, Switzerland and United Kingdom are among them. United States, Mexico and Canada airports are available to reach on North American continent, and Brazil is one on South American continent. As a final touch, there is variety of routes directed to locations of Oceania, including Australia, Guam and Northern Mariana Islands.
Service in Japan Airlines aircrafts is worth telling about. Flight attendants will meet you with warm smiles and sincere attention to your wishes and desires. Great choice of different meals, snacks and beverages will satisfy your hunger and needs. The significant element of flights made with Japan Airlines is their entertainment system. It is called MAGIC and deserves such name. The content of it is a great multiply of different movies, music tracks and video games. Last generation of MAGIC includes also Audio/Video On Demand system - you can use one in Japan Airlines on Boeing 767 and 777. Comments from flight attendants built into the system will also help you to choose what you will spend your next hour on. If inflight entertainment is important for you, you should try this true jewel of entertainment systems. No wonder that MAGIC is owned by an air carrier from Japan, the native land of Sony and Nintendo, modern technological capital of the world. Today Japan Airlines is one of the most successful airlines. Perhaps, soon it could enter the major scale air traveling business entering oneworld Alliance. But just now Japan Airlines is worth trying to travel with - and you can learn it with your own flight experience.
