Japan Airlines (JAL) began offering a new lineup of Japanese cheese for First and Business class passengers on select international routes on September 1, 2013.
The selected flights (for the service in First class) include flights from Tokyo Narita to Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
In First Class, the accompanying garnish is carefully selected according to the suggestions by the cheese producers to go well with their particular kind of cheese.
The selected flights (for the service in Business class) include flights from Tokyo Narita to Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, San Diego, Vancouver, Boston, Honolulu and Sydney, and from Tokyo Haneda to San Francisco.
The airline will offer cheese from Hokkaido as well as Tochigi, Chiba, Nagano and Yamanashi prefectures in its current selection of cheeses.
JAL is also offering fine wines, seasonal sake and shochu (a Japanese distilled alcoholic beverage) to go with the Japan-made cheese.
JAL introduced a number of new options for in-flights meals on many of its international flights on September 1. These include a new shochu line-up and meals created by celebrity chefs and famous Japanese restaurants.
