Japan Airlines has unveiled plans to introduce new amenity kits in long-haul Business Class and has also announced new autumn menus on its international flights.
The airline is planning to introduce new amenity kits in long-haul international Business Class from the end of August 2019.
For flights departing Japan, Business Class customers will receive an amenity kit designed in collaboration with MAISON KITSUNÉ, marking the brand’s first collaboration to create an amenity kit for the airline industry.
Flights arriving into Japan will feature an amenity kit designed in collaboration with BEAMS, a Japanese brand in lifestyle retailing. The kit features a unique pattern found in popular clothing materials and will feature a new design every three months, in line with the four seasons of Japan.
The kits will include a toothbrush, earplugs, eye mask, tissue, moisturising face mask and MAISON KITSUNÉ lip balm.
In a statement the airline said: “The JAL Group will continue to embrace the challenge of delivering an inspiring travel experience with new products and services.”
On the menu
The airline has also revealed its new autumn menus available on international flights from 1 September.
For Premium Economy and Economy Class, JAL has welcomed five chefs from RED U-35, Japan’s largest culinary competition for chefs under 35, to collaborate on meals for passengers.
Meanwhile the ‘Anytime you wish’ menu for First and Business Class passengers departing from London and Frankfurt will feature a new rice bowl developed by JAL BEDD Chef Daisuke Hayashi and Chef Shinichi Yamamoto, owner of a popular ramen shop in Frankfurt called Muku.
Further highlights of the new menus include the return of the popular AIR Yoshinoya Authentic Beef Bowl as well as the renewal of JAL’s original rice crackers. The in-flight snack is being renewed with a mixture of rice crackers, almonds and Japanese bean confectionaries.
The new colourful packages are designed to express the four seasons of Japan and feature the image of an origami crane.
