It somewhat of a surprising development, Japan Airlines has partnered with Kentucky Fried Chicken to offer a series of in-flight meals.
From December 1st, passengers will be offered the menu onboard select international JAL flights.
Customers travelling in Premium Economy and Economy Class on JAL from Narita to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, Paris and Frankfurt, will be served KFC’s Original Recipe two-piece chicken meal during the second meal service.
It includes one drumstick, one boneless chicken breast fillet, a piece of complementing flat bread made especially for AIR KENTUCKY, a cup of coleslaw and lettuce leaves.
Customers can savour the same, unique taste of KFC’s trade secret recipe of “11 herbs and spices” as it is, or as a sandwich by sandwiching the fresh lettuce leaves and fragrant fillet in the bread, and topping it off with special mayonnaise.
JAL and KFC have created an exquisite packaging just for this tie-up.
The design features JAL and the famous founder and mascot of KFC, Colonel Sanders on a special box and tray mat, unavailable anywhere else but onboard these JAL flights.
KFC is widely popular in Japan particularly during the Christmas season.
