Japan airline meals are included in your ticket price. The airline has collaborated with some great brands over the years, including Yoshina, Mos Burger and KFC. Economy class passengers will enjoy Western and Japanese inflight meal options.


Japan Airlines has collaborated with many chefs, to create a range of meals for economy class passengers depending on where you are flying to and from.  On short-haul flights there usually isn’t a meal choice, while medium haul and long haul flights will offer two meal choices. Most economy class meal trays will have three side dishes of salads, noodles and vegetables. Dessert is typically served after your main meal. You’ll also find a range of soup on your inflight beverage menu. Consommé or Miso soup options are offered on most flights and be sure to head to the galley on long-haul services to Europe and the USA (ex Hawaii) for the Sky Oasis snack bar offering.
