Sunday will see the beginning of Japan Airlines flights between Boston and Tokyo. The airline might also add destinations in Spain and Germany as they now have new Boeing 787 aircraft that will allow them to increase the number of flights they operate to smaller cities. Kiyoto Morioka, vice president of network planning for the airline, said that other cities being considered are Berlin, Dusseldorf, and Madrid.
Japan Airlines already has two of the new Boeing 787s and two more will be arriving soon, according to Morioka. So far the carrier's first flight to Boston is fully booked and flights for the rest of April and the month of May are 90% booked. Morioka said the Boeing 787s are the ideal size for flights to mid-sized cities and they expect to have a lot of traffic from Japan and other parts of Asia, people who will fly to the US via Tokyo.
