An All Nippon Airways flight made an emergency landing Wednesday morning in western Japan after a cockpit message showed battery problems.
Travelers heading to Japan from Boston will be able to make the flight without touching down along the way for the first time in history.
The MLB opened the 2012 season on Wednesday with a game in Tokyo between Seattle and Oakland. Since many people were surprised about this start to the season T&R sent Adolfo out on the street to see if baseball fans knew when the season started.
Major League Baseball’s opening day is April 5th, but the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics opened the 2012 regular season in Tokyo this morning. Fred and Rich weren’t aware of this until they heard about it in one of Wallach’s headlines.
The big winner in the start of non-stop service on Japan Airlines from Boston to Tokyo next year may be American Airlines.
