As some of you might already know this, Japan Airlines (JAL) is in the progress of repainting its fleet with the new livery after the logo change. There were speculations and ideas throwing around on how JAL will repaint its original JAL Eco Jet which features a green Arc of The Sun livery. JAL finally officially reveals the new JAL Eco Jet livery and they called it JAL Eco Jet "Nature" and unfortunately there's no green crane logo on the tail as some of you might have hoped for :p
This is indeed the same 777-200 used for the original JAL Eco Jet with registration JA8984. So instead of a green crane, JAL decided to paint the logos of the various eco projects they support. This plane will be mainly flying between Tokyo Haneda and Osaka Itami, Fukuoka, Sapporo Chitose.
