Japan / Nuclear, airline precautions

Are flights to/in Japan in any potential danger? Austrian seems to think so....

Vienna - Austrian Airlines will have army radiation experts on its flights to Tokyo from Monday, the Defense Ministry said.
The experts will measure radiation levels during landing in Japan and report any unusual findings, the ministry said.
Austrian Airlines said it would introduce a stopover in Seoul on its Tokyo flights, in order to reduce the time that the crew has to spend in Japan.

Gimmick or meaningful precaution?
