16 MD-90 They have plans to get rid of these airliners.

As JAL airlines is in terrible financial shape, they don't own all the active airliners. Many are leased, and other airliners which they own are stored to be sold.

Several domestic routes have been unprofitable, but JAL was forced to keep flying them by the govenment. Growing payroll and pension costs also damaged profitability.

JAL was privatized in 1987, and listed on the stock market. It was delisted in 2010. There is no value left in the shares and govenment has taken control. 15.000 out of 45.000 of the workforce should go.

In January 2010 JAL filed for bankruptcy protection.
