Resumption of Boeing 777 operation to the U.S. mainland

Thank you for flying with Japan Airlines.

On January 18, 2022, Boeing has notified us that 5G signals for U.S. mobile phones, which will begin operating in the U.S. on January 19, may interfere with the radio wave altimeter installed on the Boeing 777. 


Based on that information, we were forced to cancel some flights to the U.S. mainland on January 19.


Today on January 19,  we have received confirmation from the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) that there is no longer a problem with the operation of the Boeing 777 and we will resume service to the U.S. mainland with Boeing 777 from January 20.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and if there is any impact on our flight operations, we will promptly announce it on our website.

Thank you for your kind understanding.
