San Diego will gain its first non-stop flight to Asia on December 2, 2012, with the launch of Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner service to Tokyo-Narita’s Airport (NRT) where the airline offers onward connections across Asia. The route will launch with four weekly services on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
On March 1, 2013, the route will go daily. San Diego will be JAL’s second 787 Dreamliner route to the United States.
Special In-Flight Menu to Commemorate Inaugural
JAL will be providing a special in-flight menu exclusive to the San Diego route for the period between December 2nd and February 28, 2013.
Passengers in Business Class en-route to San Diego will be treated to Mexican delights, starting with the amuse bouche of corn tortilla chips served with a rich salsa and cheddar cheese dip, marinated prawn Ceviche, and aspic-glazed roasted lamb with Mexican rice for customers who have opted for the Western menu. For entrées, customers will have the option of fresh sea-bream boiled with saffron and garlic, topped with a flavorful Guindilla cream and to complete the meal, customers can enjoy the California Orange Chocolate Mousse for dessert.
The carrier also provides an a la carte menu available to customers at any time after the first meal service. A la carte options in business class include a special Caesar salad, Mexican seafood burritos and JAL Original Hamburger in Sasebo Style – inspired by Sasebo, the sister city of San Diego in Nagasaki, Japan.
Customers in Economy Class who select the Western meal option will be served with a special beef stew that has been braised over long hours to achieve a soft and creamy texture, best savored with the buttered rice or bread served with it, alongside a bowl of Caesar Salad with creamy dressing and a generous amount of cheese and crunchy crotons.
Business Class passengers flying San Diego (SAN) to Tokyo-Narita (NRT) during the campaign period will be offered JAL’s Reconstructed US Prime Beef Wellington. Alternatively, customers preferring seafood can delight in the other special entrée option “Lobster Termidor”, one half of a seared lobster from the bountiful coast of US Maine.
For second meal service onboard flights bound for Tokyo, customers can enjoy a comforting bowl of steamed rice in Japanese kelp tea brimming seafood like salmon, scallops, sea urchin and roe, as well as avocado.
Back in the Economy cabin, passengers will have an opportunity to get a Taste of Japan with their second meal before arriving in Tokyo. JAL is bringing back the AIR YOSHINOYA – Beef Bowl, one of several popular AIR SERIES installations of JAL’s novel in-flight menus created in collaboration with well-known Japanese food chains.
