JAL receives 14th Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Japan Airlines (JL/JAL) has taken delivery of its 14th Dreamliner: Boeing 787-8 JA831J. The aircraft departed Paine Field (PAE/KPAE) at 1643 PDT on March 18th as flight JL8101, and arrived at Tokyo/Haneda (HND/RJTT) at 1829 JST on March 19th.

JAL configures its General Electric GEnx-1B-powered B787-8s with 42 business class and 144 economy class seats. Although newer international-configured B767-300ERs are receiving new Sky Suite interiors (JAL adding more Sky Suite destinations.) and blended winglets, Dreamliners will gradually supercede older machines, which in turn will replace the oldest domestic B767-300s after conversion to domestic configuration.
