The travel industry is hit hard due to the pandemic. With several flights being parked for the moment, Japanese Airline -All Nippon Airways decided to make the most of the situation by serving luxe meals off stationary planes. Yes, that’s right!
Much to the delight of food and travel connoisseurs, the ‘restaurant with wings’ was launched for a single day on Wednesday (March 31, 2021), however seeing the massive demand, it is extended for service. On the menu are Foie gras, crabmeat mousse, and wagyu beef fillet amongst a host of other goodies served with Japanese sake, plum wine, or Krug champagne.
Offering a complete in-flight experience, guests are welcomed with crew announcements and meals served in-cabin seats, minus the seat belts, of course. The servings are either first-class or business class meals with ‘passengers’ boarding a Boeing 777 at Tokyo’s Haneda airport holding tickets designed to look like boarding passes.
Yosuke Kimoto, 42, who enjoyed a business-class meal at the restaurant with his son, said, “It was a delicious meal. I’m glad that my kid enjoyed it too.” Kimoto’s son further added, “The business class was drastically different from the economy class in terms of both food and the seat. It was so spacious, and the seat was like a bed when reclined.”
The airline will offer 22 lunch and dinner sessions this month with complimentary amenity kits and access to the lounge at Haneda’s domestic terminal. A delightful inflight experience awaits you at All Nippon Airways!
