ANA to serve burgers on European flights

22 Aug 2011 by BusinessTraveller

The carrier is to revive its “classic burger” offering on routes from Tokyo Narita to Europe and North America this autumn, as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations of the start of international flights in 1986.

The carrier first served burgers inflight in 1999 to commemorate the launch of its Narita to Chicago route, and will now reintroduce them to the business class menu between September and November on routes from Narita to Europe and North America, and from Haneda to Asia.

According to ANA each burger is made to order by cabin crew, with the option of cheese and bacon, as well as fresh garnish vegetables and sauce of the customer’s choice.

The burgers will be offered alongside the carrier’s new seasonal dishes “reflecting the autumnal flavours presented with a spirit Japanese of hospitality”. These include sake marinated grilled Bluefish, fillet steak with braised donko shiitake mushrooms, and parfait with soy milk ice cream and kyoho grapes.

ANA will also reopen its lounge for domestic passengers at Tokyo Haneda airport on September 15, following a refurbishment programme which has seen the addition of a new premium check-in facility and dedicated security gate with direct access into the lounge. The lounge is located on the north side of Terminal 2, close to gate 60.

The Japanese carrier is gearing up for the launch of its B787 Dreamliner aircraft next month - for more information including launch routes, seatplans, interior videos and exterior livery, click here.
