Japan Airlines stated it would eliminate around 170 pilot and flight attendant positions on 30-Dec-2010 as its voluntary retirement programme failed to deliver the job reduction target as part of its restructuring plan (Kyodo News, 29-Dec-2010). Around 80 pilots, 60 flight attendants and 30 other employees are to be dismissed. The carrier is aiming to reduce its payroll to 32,600 employees by the end of Mar-2011, with the plan involving the elimination of around 16,000 jobs.
