JAPAN AIR LINES PLACES ORDER FOR THE MAXY AX FROM MISUBISHI

By CBR Staff Writer

Japan Air Lines has placed the biggest order to yet for the Maxy AX AT-alike from Mitsubishi Electric Corp: the Japanese flag carrier wants a total of 4,000 for use as terminals as it switches over its airline reservation system from the former Jalcom to the new Axess system and the Maxys will be installed in reservation centres around Japan, initially linking to the new domestic booking system, with the international booking system coming online later; JAL had planned to take Mitsubishi’s M3300 series workstations, but changed its mind when it saw the Maxy, which has also caught the eye of Meiji Life Insurance, which wants 2,000 of the things; with orders of this size, Mitsubishi is beginning to cut into NEC’s near unassailable lead in the business personal computer market at least.
