InFlightFeed unwraps Japan Airlines new food options
Japan airlines menu changes
An enhanced inflight meal experience awaits you on your next Japan Airlines flight. Beginning Sept. 1, Japan Airlines is teaming up with well known brands to offer passengers in all classes a vast array of Japanese delicacies!
First Class & Executive Class
Passengers in First and Executive class can feast on a new range of Japanese cheeses with flavours from the yeast of miso and sake, accompanied by Japanese rice wines and western wines. Further, they can enjoy the Air Taimeiken and Air Yoshinoya signature dishes (see below) anytime during their flight as part of the ‘Anytime You Wish’ service.
Premium Economy & Economy Class
From Sept. 1 until Feb. 28, 2013, if you are flying from Haneda to San Francisco, Bangkok or Singapore, expect to be dazzled by the Noriben Bento Box. Designed in conjunction with Soup Stock Tokyo, this healthy bento box will consist of dried seaweed, and select side dishes of grilled salmon, whitebait, chikuwa (September to October) or grilled chicken and fried burdock (November to February).
From Sept. 1 until Nov. 30, 2012, passengers travelling from Narita to Boston, Chicago, Frankfurt, London, Los Angeles, New York, or Paris can enjoy yet again the Air Series signature dishes. Teaming up with Taimeiken restaurant, passengers will enjoy a tasty omelette rice and chicken dish. All items are served separately and passengers will be given instructions on how to eat the dish correctly.
Also available from Los Angeles to Narita is the Air Yoshinoya beef bowl, which made its debut earlier this year. Packaging for this meal option has been well thought out: the meat is kept separate to the rice; and any additional sauce will be provided to passengers. This will ensure that the meal experience is as close to the real thing 35,000-feet below.
The Air Taimeiken and Air Yoshinoya options will be served as part of the second meal service in economy and premium economy class.
