Japan Airlines' flight JAL/JL585, a Boeing 767-346ER, took off from Tokyo/Haneda at 08:00 LT for Hakodate. The weather at Hakodate was deteriorating due to fog. STA was 08:55 LT (11/2355Z), but the first approach was abandoned at 09:00 LT. The second go-around was initiated at 09:19 LT. Then the flight crew decided to divert to the planned alternate, New Chitose (CTS/RJCC). While approaching to New Chitose, the flight crew noticed that the expected remaining fuel on arrival would be insufficient for the company's regulation. A fuel emergency was declared at 09:35 LT, and the Boeing given priority landed safely on runway 19R of New Chitose at 09:45 LT. The remaining fuel on arrival was 3400 lbs for 25 minutes of flight, though the company's regulation requires 4200 lbs for 30 minutes. There were no personal injuries. The flight restarted from New Chitose at 11:02 LT after refueling, and arrived at Hakodate at 11:41 LT.
JCAB rated the occurrence as a serious incident next day, and JTSB started an investigation.
