Passengers traveling on some Japan Airlines’ flights from Japan to the U.S. and Europe are getting a fast-food flavor fix in-flight, Kentucky Fried Chicken. For the seventh year, Japan Airlines is bringing back its popular Air Kentucky Fried Chicken meals in premium economy and economy from December until Feb. 28, 2013.
Presented in a pale blue box emblazoned with KFC’s Colonial Sanders and a JAL aircraft, the meals include KFC’s Original Recipe two-piece chicken meal (one drumstick and one boneless chicken breast fillet), a piece of flatbread made especially for AIR KENTUCKY, coleslaw, and lettuce leaves. Customers can use the lettuce, flatbread, chicken fillet, and special mayonnaise to create a sandwich.
The Air Kentucky Fried Chicken meals are served on flights from Narita Airport in Tokyo to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, Paris, and Frankfurt. Now that sounds like a finger-lickin’ good in-flight meal.
