Japan’s largest airline, ANA, is to introduce enhanced catering mainly on international flights for Economy and Premium Economy customers.
These will be developed by ‘The Connoisseurs’, an in-flight meal team composed of 10 renowned chefs, five liquor and coffee professionals and nine of ANA’s own catering chefs.
The Connoisseurs currently cater for ANA’s Business and First Class passengers only and with this move the airline is clearly recognising that the ‘back end’ passengers are just as important as those in the upgraded classes. ANA will also be renewing meal choices for children and adding additional ranges in Premium Economy.
The changes build on improvements for in-flight dining, bedding and amenities introduced on international First and Business Class flights in July this year.
Not only Japanese but Western and Asian cuisine are served on flights to meet the different tastes of customers.
ANA’s chefs have created new in-flight meals for children in the style of the popular Japanese lunch box. The "Deco-ben", meaning a decorative lunch box, is unique to Japanese culture and uses colour and cute designs to make food exciting and enticing to children. www.ana.co.jp
