Japan Airlines has improved its in-flight meal service
featured on USA routes, to its flights to London, Paris, Frankfurt, and
Passengers traveling on JAL's Executive
Class Seasons - the airline's international business class - on
these routes, can look forward to being pampered with a wider
array of dishes to select from for their in-flight meal, and by
the heightened level of personalized service.
Passengers are presented with a choice of
Japanese or Western full-course menus for their first meal
onboard. The Japanese menu, produced in collaboration with Kyoto
cuisine Mebaekai, incorporates the seasonally-changing flavors of
the haute cuisine of Japan.
Only the freshest seasonal ingredients are
used to artfully craft a course of small dishes that have been
steamed, simmered or grilled. The first course will consists of 8
small dishes instead of the current 3, and to create an atmosphere
of the coming spring season, passengers will be treated to
delicacies like "sashimi"-style bream, baby sardines with Japanese
pepper and butterbur sprouts which will be complemented with a
glass of Japanese sake or shochu. Moving on to the main dish, or
Daimono, passengers can now choose between fish or meat to go with
freshly-cooked rice on board.
JAL's western menu is created by some of the top
chefs from the Association des Disciples d'Auguste Escoffier du
Japon. Passengers can enjoy the delectable hors d'oevres and
following that, select between 2 entrées that will be stylishly
arranged on the plate by cabin attendants in the kitchen.
For their second meal, passengers have the
freedom to choose when they wish to be served and will be spoiled
for choice with a selection of over 10 different Japanese and
Western style dishes.
To increase the level of customer care cabin
attendants are now assigned to specific areas in the cabin so that
they can attend to the needs of the same passengers from take-off
to landing. This increases the contact and deepens the bond
between the cabin attendants and passengers, adding an intimate
and personal touch to the overall in-flight experience.
JAL has also removed the use of serving
carts when serving meals in its executive class, to create a more
spacious and quiet environment. Each meal is served individually,
just the way customers can expect to be served in a restaurant.
