On Wednesday (June 29, 2022), Japan Airlines announced the launch of ‘SKY DELI by JAL’ in partnership with Dean & Deluca. From Thursday, June 30, 2022 customers traveling between Tokyo Haneda and Gimpo can now enjoy café-style meals that can be easily enjoyed during their flight. The meals are also served in paper packaging, reducing weight and eliminating single-use plastics. The new catering offer is in response to customers’ desire for delicious and easy to eat meals on short flights. The new café-style meals are easier to enjoy than traditional tray style meals, allowing guests to design their own inflight experience.


In addition to the SKY DELI by JAL meal selection, JAL CAFÉ Lines’ original coffee, curated by Coffee Hunter José Y. Kawashima will continue to be available. On flights from Tokyo Haneda to Gimpo the menu will include a pecan nut bacon potato donut sandwich from Dean & Deluca accompanied by ‘POTATO for You’ cheese flavored crisps by Calbee. Customers traveling from Gimpo to Tokyo Haneda can enjoy a marmalade fried chicken donut sandwich by Dean & Deluca with POTATO for YOU black pepper flavored crisps.


The reduction of plastic containers and the use of paper packaging will reduce the weight of tableware and packaging by around 95 percent compared to conventional inflight meals, thereby reducing approximately 70 tons of CO2 per year.
