(Update: Added video news coverage and you can see how JAL staff decorated the Doraemon Jet)
Japan Airlines finally unveiled its Doraemon Jet today at Haneda hanger. JAL will start flying the Doraemon Jet from Monday until the end of April.

JAL invited 120 locals (kids+parents) to attend today's ceremony. Of course Doraemon itself was there too! The kids took pictures with Doaremon, boarded the plane, watched some videos and were all very happy :) But too bad, I think Doraemon is too big to get into the plane itself...maybe it can try an AA plane next time LOL

And for those who worries about JAL paying for the $$ to decorate the Doraemon Jet, JAL hardly pays for it because the Doraemon Jet is mainly for publicity of the new Doraemon movie coming out in March. So do they actually get paid to do this? LOL

The JAL Doraemon Jet is a Boeing 777-300 with registration number JA8941. The same plane has been used for a few other special liveries before, e.g. the Oneworld Livery, which you can check it out on airliners.net.

Mainichi Daily News has a very nice photo album of today's event. You can look at the Doraemon Jet and how happy the kids were here.
