Japan Airlines has become the first customer to fully implement an in-flight monitoring system from Boeing that will help it operate at peak levels of safety, reliability and efficiency. JAL is implementing Airplane Health Management (AHM), a new data-monitoring and prognostic service developed by Boeing Commercial Aviation Services. AHM monitors the health of an airplane in flight and relays that information in real time from the air to the ground. When the airplane arrives at the gate, maintenance crews are ready to make any needed repairs quickly. A development partner since spring 2004, JAL began using the system to monitor half its Boeing 747 -400 and 777 fleets . Since then, it has extended the system to cover all of its 747-400s and 777s.
