On January 2010, Japan Airlines filed for bankruptcy after sustaining fatal financial losses. A proven entrepreneur Kazuo Inamori became its president and led the company to hold major cost cuts and change in mentality. As a result, in only 2 years, the company achieved record-high revenue of 200 billion yen and has rejoined the stock market. Yoshiharu Ueki became the company’s new president in 2012. After his years of career as a pilot, he joined the management soon after the bankruptcy and worked with Inamori for the company’s revival. The program features interview with Ueki exploring JAL’s remarkable recovery and its future challenges and aspirations.
