Hmm I do wonder how many people actually are interested in airplane food. Well I’m sure there’s some of you out there…
I’ve always had the impression that JAL has pretty good airplane food. And I was half right. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal during the flight to Japan. It could be due to the fact I was majorly hungry. Nonetheless I had a very very good impression of it.
Although as you can see it’s still light out, for us on the flight biologically it was dinner time. We had a choice between the Sand-borer tempura with rice or some chicken thing. I picked the tempura.
It also came with a potato salad (I think the Japanese really really like potato salad…it’s basically everywhere) and zaru-soba. They also serve hot green tea if you want.
But what I had really really been waiting for, for probably 9 years (I’m so not kidding you), was that drink you see in the back. It’s a JAL exclusive called “Sky Time”
It is basically a yuzu (citron) flavored, non-carbonated drink. Very very Japanese. We got a bottle of white wine to go with it to make it into a “Sky Royal”, which is really what they call it. By the way, this was the beginning of my total-yuzu-ing-it-out Japanese experience.
They were also awesome to include an English Bay cookie.
I must say, they also serve really really good coffee. Nice, bold aroma, not watered down at all. This was the theme everytime I had coffee in Japan actually, even in fast food restaurants. North America PLEASE take note.
Breakfast though wasn’t that fascinating. It was a half of a turkey sandwich. Again you see me getting Sky Time. As of now my opinion was, they definitely do dinner better.
