Established after the Second World War, Japan Airlines evolved into Japan's leading air carrier in a highly regulated environment. After liberalisation of the Japanese airlines industry in 1987, Japan Airlines suffered losses due to a tough business environment and inherent inefficiencies. Its merger with Japan Air System created Japan Airlines Corporation (JAL), which became one of the world's leading air carriers. However, in 2005 a series of safety lapses in JAL planes severely damaged customer confidence in the airline and the company received a first-ever operational improvement order from Japan's Transport Ministry.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To highlight the formation and growth of JAL against the backdrop of the Japanese airlines industry
  • To discuss its brand building strategies to win back customer confidence.
