(In a corporate newsletter dated October 21, Japan Airlines struck back at the filmmakers of Shizumanu Taiyo, a thinly veiled fictional account of the crash of JAL Flight 123 in 1985.)

We Face This Together: Do Not be Misled by Gossip and Criticism

The harsh financial conditions surrounding our company are attracting the attention of the public…. Not only does this damage [the public’s] trust in us as a company, it could also lead to a loss of customers…. There is no way that such fraud [as depicted in the film] occurred… Fictionalizing [the accident] for a film and trying to use it for corporate gain is inconsiderate to the families of the deceased. We are considering what appropriate measures to take in regards to this.
