Preparation of Inflight Meals for International Flights
Delivering the ultimate flight experience through inflight dining
Our menus always include specialties of the season, so you can enjoy delicious meals with a seasonal flavor even while you are flying. Our motto is "safe and high-quality inflight meals." We aim for customer satisfaction through "food," which is one of the key aspects for an airline in delivering a top-class service.
We use the finest ingredients, sourced from Japan and around the world, to prepare a variety of menus for each flight class and route. We take pride in our attention to detail when it comes to the delicate flavoring and arrangement of dishes. The skill and sensibility of each of our chefs is what makes us who we are. Since our inflight meals will be served to thousands of customers, we take great care to ensure that each one is made perfectly.
In our hot kitchen, we chop vegetables, prepare meat and fish, and cook with heat, as the name suggests. We prepare thousands of inflight meals every day, but because we believe that the chopping of vegetables and the preparation of meat and fish greatly affect the quality of the final product, this is all done by hand.
Since the meals will be reheated on board, cooking times are carefully calculated and adjusted so that the dishes reach the flight in peak condition, and temperatures are strictly controlled to ensure the highest standards of hygiene.
In the cold kitchen, we mainly prepare dishes that are not cooked with heat. Ingredients cooked in the hot kitchen are cut into equally sized portions and seasoned, and fruits and cheeses are also cut to size so that we can provide a premium quality meal to every customer. When preparing each dish, we always have an image of the finished product in mind, taking into consideration how it will be served by the cabin crew.
The pastry kitchen is where we make bread and desserts. Our bread is homemade from our own dough. We bake a variety of soft and hard breads, which our customers love. We prepare both Western-style and Japanese-style desserts, focusing on the finishing touches to provide visual impact as well as delicious flavor.
