Japan Airlines Corp has decided to introduce a watershed policy in the Japanese transport industry that will exempt pilots and maintenance workers from punishment even if their errors result in a fatal accident, company officials said. The officials said the Japanese airline puts priority on investigating the cause of a serious accident and believes that the new policy would foster confidence between the company and its employees and help produce swift and accurate reports on any trouble.
