Fast food has taken to the skies! In an apparent world-first, Japan Airlines will begin offering KFC as part of its inflight menu.
For a limited time, passengers flying out of Japan can enjoy classic KFC staples like chicken drumsticks, chicken breast, flat bread, coleslaw, and the famous “special mayonnaise.”
The KFC program, dubbed “Air Kentucky,” is scheduled to run for three months over the winter holiday season, from December 1 through February 28. KFC will be available on select flights from Narita airport in Tokyo, to destinations including New York, San Diego, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt, and Paris.
KFC is hugely popular in Japan and other Asian countries, but this is the first time a national airline has partnered with a commercial fast food giant. If the concept proves successful, burgers and chicken wings could become a permanent fixture on airline menus.
What’s your take – is fast food a better option than airline food? Given the chance, would you eat KFC on a plane?
