All Nippon Airways (ANA) announced a special livery that supports the recovery effort in Japan. Last week, one of their Boeing 767-300ERs (JA611A) showed off the special “Forward together as one, Japan” livery.

On May 2nd, ANA displayed a Boeing 777-300ER (JA786A) with the relief-related message at New York’s John F Kennedy Airport (JFK) for photographers and invited media.

“ANA wishes not only to support those who have been affected by the earthquake, but also move forward together with them to rebuild the region,” ANA spokes person told Airline Reporter. “For our global passengers, ANA would like to reassure our commitment to safety and top quality services through this message as well.”

As of March 13th, all ANA international flights have been operating on their normal schedule. Since April 13th, ANA has been back to flying to all the domestic airports it regularly serves as well as additional relief flights to Senai and Yamagata.

ANA is not sure how long the special livery will fly on the aircraft, but it will be at least through the month of May. NYCAviation has all 13 photos taken by Manny Gonzalez.

I suppose it is a nice touch… But… Given the cost of repaintain any aircraft of that size, maybe the good folks at ANA could have contributed those dollars (Yen) to some more productive use. And – repainting again, after a month or so? I’m thinking a poor choice. I know… as the launch cistomer for the 787, they can do no wrong. Still…
