JAL helps passengers keep Fuji San in sight

Japan Airlines now has a webpage called “Which Side is Mt. Fuji?” to tell which window side passengers can see Mt. Fuji on its domestic flights.

“This service is in response to many customers’ interest in knowing which side Mt. Fuji can be seen in the cabin during their flights,” said a release from JAL. 

To enable worldwide passengers easily find which window side to see JAL within Japan, this special page is provided in both Japanese and English on JAL’s global website.

Beverage packaging on growth track

The market research company ASDReports predicts that the world market for beverage packaging will reach $112.4 billion this year. 

This forecast and others appear in Beverage Packaging Market Report 2016-2026: Analysis of Top Companies & Forecasts of Rigid & Flexible Plastic, Glass, Metal, Paper & Other Materials is available for purchase by the company.

The global beverage packaging market is expected to witness considerable change in its competitive landscape over the next 10 years. ASDReports says Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the largest regional market. Commodity price fluctuations as well as concerns over the slowdown of the economy growth in China have fueled investors with worries over the outlook for the region. 

Asia Pacific constitutes the largest market for the beverage packaging industry as well as providing several growth opportunities. The company estimates Europe is the second-largest market, however economic growth may offset the beverage packaging growth even though the region is known for rapid innovations in the sector. North America is projected to be the third market by value. The United States represents a developed economy with limited opportunities for new entrants and slow but steady growth. Furthermore, U.S. manufacturers are more exposed to capital market fluctuations. Uneven growth patterns are recognized in emerging economies of Latin America, and Middle East and Africa regions, potentially representing good opportunity but with higher risks. ASDReports says the Australasia region may also experience fluctuations of growth, however Australia represents a more mature market. The report provides analysis of the political and financial climates in the regions.
