JAL to add fun character to in-flight meals

31 May 2013

From tomorrow, Japan Airlines (JAL) will start serving in-flight meals in a package adorned with the popular Japanese character Kumamon.

This new meal service will be in operation until August 31, in premium economy and economy class on routes from Narita, Tokyo to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, Paris and Frankfurt. Passengers on Helsinki flights, meanwhile, will be graced by the cuddly character boxes starting July 1. 


The cute packaging will contain a meal consisting of noodle soup with vegetables and Kumamon custard cake, among others things.

This fun in-flight meal innovation comes one month after JAL introduced remote meal ordering service in business class (see story here).
