Japan Airlines is to introduce
award-winning Miyazaki beef to its inflight meals for First Class
on international routes from Tokyo (Narita) to Europe and North
America from today (9 January) until 31 March 2013, to commemorate the
launch of JAL Sky Suite 777 - the airline's latest inflight
products and services.
Produced in Miyazaki
Prefecture situated in the southern islands of Kyushu, Japan,
Miyazaki beef is rated over level A-4 by the Japan Meat Grading
Association for its outstanding quality of meat. It won the
topmost accolades in five of nine categories in a nationwide wagyu
(Japanese beef) quality contest that is held every five years, for
two consecutive contests (2007 and 2012), and is recognized as the
most superior beef in Japan and a well-known prime label overseas.
Between today and 28 February
2013, JAL will serve the high grade beef in First Class as a main
western meal selection. Customers will be able to enjoy the Miyazaki beef fillet "alla Rossini", matched with
fragrantly seared foie gras and apple - a menu specially crafted
by Seiji Yamamoto, Michelin 3-star chef and owner of distinguished Japanese restaurant Ryugin.
There will be a
regular change of menu from 1 March 2013 and JAL will continue to
utilize Miyazaki beef in the new line-up until 31 March 2013.
