The Colonel’s secret recipe takes flight: KFC catering JAL flights

Having trouble getting your fix of chicken from KFC? Time to book an intercontinental flight on JAL. The carrier and the restaurant have announced that the next three months customers will receive a two piece KFC meal as the second service in economy and premium economy:

During this period, customers traveling in Premium Economy and Economy Class on JAL from Narita to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego*, London, Paris and Frankfurt, will be served KFC’s Original Recipe two-piece chicken meal during the second meal service.


I’m actually tempted to go book a flight…

  1. I could not comprehend the move… KFC? Other folks go and try to get top-flight restaurants to do these sorts of things. what am i missing?

  2. how can a fried product possibly be reheated into something tasty?

    and, is it going to make the planes smell like a KFC? that would be terrible….

    but KFC is very popular overseas, and Americans love fast food! The packaging looks rather elegant considering the product, hahaha.

  3. Is KFC REALLY that big of a commodity for travelers coming from Japan to the USA? Its surprising how far fried chicken travels around the world, and how its sought after.

    It doesn’t make me really WANT to hop on a JAL flight though. Now if it were an In-N-Out Double Double…i might be more tempted.

  4. Lol awesome. When travelling for 2-3 weeks sometimes you crave something from home. Both Cambodia and Poland had pretty good KFC.
