Japan Airlines considers ordering 20 Airbus A350s

Japan Airlines-JAL (Tokyo) has been a loyal Boeing customer. However the recent problems with the much-delayed Boeing 787 may have soured that relationship.

JAL is considering replacing its current Boeing 777-300 ERs with the new Airbus A350-100s for its European routes.
