Since JAL’s removal of the famous crane from it’s livery, Japan Airlines has had bad luck financially while watching its own quality and service drop below international levels. Many Japanese feel that the return of the crane will also mean the return of a high quality airline.
Personally, Japan Airlines is my favorite airline but right now I only fly EVA Air. I hope I can start booking flights with JAL again in the near future.
