Out of rehab, JAL goes looking for deals

Deal with French business jet service signifies cautious return to expansion

TOKYO -- Japan Airlines is switching to an expansion mode, having completed a humiliating rehabilitation process on public money, but the company remains cautious, for now.

On Tuesday, the Japanese carrier announced it had signed a deal with France's Dassault Falcon Service to launch interconnection flights, taking passengers from Tokyo to Paris on JAL flights and then to destinations in Europe and Africa on Dassault Falcon's business jets.
