“We are pleased to announce the return of Dallas/Fort Worth to our international network, which becomes our eighth gateway in North America and our fourth US service launch in just over three years,” said Yoshiharu Ueki, president of Japan Airlines.

“By making full use of the effi ciencies of the Dreamliner as well as capitalising on our even stronger relationship with American Airlines, we are confident this resumed service will provide even more valuable links for commercial and cultural exchanges for our customers in both regions and beyond.”

American and JAL commenced their Pacific Joint Business partnership in April 2011.
