Japan Airlines was operating seven 787s on international routes before the grounding. It has arranged for alternate aircraft on these routes through the end of May, and has also had to cut some frequencies. The carrier says it will make a decision about when its 787s will return to service after JCAB has issued its clearance.

The carrier has also yet to decide when test flights will begin, a spokesman says. JAL had to postpone the start of a new route to Helsinki due to the 787 problems. There is no word on a revised launch date.
