In contrast to the other two, Japan Airlines, JAL and All Nippon Airways, ANA, JAS' international route network was very small, but its domestic network incorporated many smaller airports that were not served by the two larger airlines. As an independent company, it was last headquartered in the JAS M1 Building at Haneda Airport in Ōta, Tokyo. It has since merged with Japan Airlines. JAS was famous for its variety of aircraft liveries; Amy Chavez of ''The Japan Times'' described the rainbow liveries as "abstract." Many of its color schemes in the 1990s were designed by film director Akira Kurosawa.Chavez, Amy.Japan takes flight" ''The Japan Times''. December 23, 2008. Retrieved on March 1, 2009.
