Instead of eating fast food at the airport before boarding, this collaboration will allow passengers to sample a two-piece chicken meal in the air.
Japan Airlines is introducing KFC in-flight meals onboard select international flights from December 1st to February 28th. KFC is a very popular chain in Japan, especially during the Christmas season, with many reserving buckets of chicken to eat on Christmas Day a month in advance.
Customers traveling in Premium Economy and Economy Class from Narita to New York, Boston, Chicago, L.A., San Diego, London, Paris, and Frankfurt, will be served KFC’s Original Recipe two-piece chicken meal. This includes one drumstick, one boneless chicken breast fillet, a piece of flat bread made especially for ‘Air Kentucky,’ a cup of coleslaw, and lettuce leaves. Customers can eat the pieces separately or put them together in a sandwich topped off with mayonnaise.
Japan Airlines and KFC have created exclusive packaging for this collaboration, featuring the airline and Colonel Sanders on a special box and tray mat.
