Japan Airlines announced it would introduce new menus on routes between Honolulu beginning in September.  In addition, the airline also announced it would offer new special services for its Honolulu flights.

In business class, JAL will introduce Bedd for Resort, a special menu crafted by Chef Chikara Yamada.  The menu will include seasonal autumn salmon with ginger-fried pork, and a Western menu of Japanese beef filet with special sauce.  The options will be available on flights from Tokyo Narita, Nagoya Chubu, and Osaka Kansai to Honolulu.

Also beginning in September, the airline will offer an Ore-no Kinaishoku for Resort menu for economy class, which will include Ore-no Beef Stroganoff, Ore-no Zensai, and Ore-no salad with truffle oil dressing.  In addition, JAL will improve its Air Yoshinoya selection with the addition of an original Japanese beef bowl.  Shochu, a Japanese distilled beverage, will be available in First Class, Business Class and Premium Economy on international routes as well. Between December 2013 and February of next year, the airline will offer Italian main dishes and French side dishes and dessert.  These menus will also be available on the airline’s flights between Honolulu and Tokyo Narita, Nagoya Chubu, and Osaka Kansai.

In addition to the new in-flight meal services, Japan Airlines will also begin offering new additional features, including a new section (last four seats of economy class) for nursing and ladies make-up.  During boarding and de-boarding stages between Tokyo and Honolulu, the airline will also play background ukulele music performed by Jake Shimabukuro, a famous ukulele artist from Hawaii.

In an effort to allow passengers to have a more restful night’s sleep, the airline will also begin serving in-flight meals prior to landing, as opposed to following take-off, on flights from Tokyo Haneda to Honolulu, starting October 1.  Also beginning October 1, Japan Airlines will start to offer picture books and toys for young children, on flights between Tokyo Narita and Honolulu.
