Boeing Provides Airplane Health Management Prognostics for JAL Boeings

AHM (Airplane Health Management) is Boeing’s software system that monitors, collects and analyses aircraft data for maintenance. Japan Airlines has ordered AHM in 35 787 Boeings ordered. The system will also be running on its 777s.

The system transmits in-flight info to ground services for diagnosis and operational decisions.

Airplane Health Management prognostics uses real-time airplane data to provide enhanced fault forwarding, troubleshooting and historical fix information to reduce schedule interruptions and increase maintenance and operational efficiency. It delivers valuable information when and where it’s needed. When an airplane arrives at the gate, maintenance crews can be ready with the parts and information to quickly make any necessary repairs. AHM also enables operators to identify recurring faults and trends, allowing airlines to proactively plan future maintenance. The primary benefit provided by AHM is the opportunity to substantially reduce schedule interruption costs such as delays, cancellations, air turnbacks, and diversions.

Ex Pilots Sue Japan Airlines

In Tokyo District Court, 146 plaintiffs argued over their dismissal. A year after JAL filed bankruptcy, and underwent restructuring in a government-backed bailout, the 74 flight crew and 72 cabin attendants—some of whom include their most experienced employees—attended a press conference. The documentation of their lawsuit included statements that said their dismissal was unnecessary as the airline known as JAL made operating profit totaling over 140 billion yen ($1.7 billion) from April to November in 2010. Kazuya Chikamura, head of the Japan Federation of Aviation Worker’s Union said pilots over 55, copilots 48 and above, and over 53 for flight attendants, factoring in also sick days. The suit questions if JAL made every effort to avoid dismissal and honor their contracts. A November 30 court decision by Tokyo District Court requires JAL to lose 30% of their workers or 16,000 jobs by March.
