Inflight Meals

Japan Airlines is lovable to lots of passengers due to it friendly service. The flight attendants smile all the time and are always willing to help you. If you travel with Japan airlines, don’t hesitate to ask for support when you need it.

If your stomach is not good enough for cold food, choosing Japan Airlines should be taken into consideration due to its special trays. Japan Airlines uses the trays that have the heated bit inside, therefore, the food is kept warm enough when it is served to passengers. Besides, Japan is also famous for green tea, which is benevolent to people’s health if regular intake is taken. However, some people find green tea a little weird taste and they cannot drink it.

Unlike green tea, green tea ice-cream seems to be the favorite of almost all passengers. A combination of cold ice-cream with an oriental flavor – green tea just cannot make your day even better. For economy class, Apple pancake is highly recommended. It is yummy enough to satisfy customers. Sushi and sashimi is a must-try dish.

Japan Airlines has some weak points. Business class passengers do not have a lot of options in comparison with other airlines. Besides, due to its Asian culture, food is claimed to serve in so small portion which Western customers do not feel full after meals.

Last but not least, most flights between Vietnam and Japan take 5 to 7 hours overnight or late evening flight so you get to enjoy either breakfast or dinner and a snack only.
