JAL Boeing 777 routes in 2011

JAL was the largest operater of Boeing 747 airliners in the world for many years but from March 2011 the 747 will no longer be part of their active fleet.
Over the years the Boeing 777 has take over routes of the JAL 747 airliners.
But one should not just compare the number of 777 to that of the 747. Both airliners served domestic routes in Japan.
It seems they have 24 ER (Extended Range) 777s in their active fleet of 46 777s with 7 extra 777-300ER on order early 2011.

The Boeing 777-200 and 77-300 against the 777-200ER and 777-300ER

The 777-200 and 777-300 have served domestic routes in Japan. Even during the banckruptcy JAL has been adding 777-300ER airliners.

Only the ER (Extender Range) versions are capable of true long haul flights to Europe and America.

It seems they have 24 of the ER 777s in their active fleet of 46 777s with 7 extra 777-300ER on order early 2011

Of the 20 Boeing 777-300 in service in December 2010, probably 7 are 777-300 and 13 are 777-300ER. Might be confusing as they have 7 extra 777-300ER on order.

Of the 26 Boeing 777-200in service in December 2010, probably 15 are 777-200 and 11 are 777-200ER.

The non-ER 777 seem to do only domestic flights.

Some of the long haul destinations are also served by JALs Boeing 767-300 airliners: Singapore (2x daily), Kuala Lumpur (daily); ....
