A stern warning and shake of the finger to Japan Airlines (JAL)
and its parent company from the government in Tokyo, which issued
what it calls an "operational correction" to the company over a
series of what Japanese media reports called "dangerous
The Mainichi Daily News reports "operational corrections" are
among the most serious warnings the Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure and Traffic can issue in dealing with what it sees
as transportation problems.
The Daily News reports one incident for which such a correction
was issued involved a JAL aircraft that began its take-off roll at
Shinchitose Airport in Hokkaido last January. A similar
incident involving a JAL aircraft occurred at Incheon Airport in
South Korea on March 11th, according to the report.
It was the first time JAL had received such a government warning
since February, 1999, when its mechanics used the wrong type of
lubricant in some of its aircraft.
