Japan Airlines 50th Anniversary
In 2001, as part of Japan Airlines 50th anniversary celebrations and the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney’s birth, the airline held the promotion “JAL Dream Express 21”. Six aircraft received five different Disney inspired liveries; two aircraft carried the same theme.
The Boeing 747-400 is an American wide-body, four-engined jet airliner and the best-selling variant of the B747 family. It is one of the most recognisable passenger aircraft with its distinctive hump atop the forward fuselage. The -400 flew for the first time on April 29, 1988, and made its service debut on February 9, 1989, with Northwest Airlines. Produced in several versions; -400 (passenger), -400F (freighter), -400M (combi), a high-density seating for short-haul Japanese domestic flights (-400D), -400ER (extended range) and -400ERF (extended range freighter). Production of the B747-400 ended in 2002, with 694 airframes built.
The -400 incorporates technological and structural improvements over previous variants. A new glass cockpit removed the need for a flight engineer. The optional stretched upper deck of 747-300 became standard. Lengthen, lighter wings and except the -400D, 1.8 m (6 ft) canted winglets. More fuel-efficient Pratt & Whitney PW4000, General Electric CF6 or Rolls-Royce RB211 high-bypass turbofan engines and increased fuel capacity. Carbon brakes instead of steel and improved fuselage to wing fairings. It can seat up to 416 passengers in a typical three-class layout, 524 in a two-classes, or 660 passengers in a high–density single class (747-400D) and a maximum range of up to 14,200 km (8,823 mi) with maximum payload, depending on the version.
