Japan, somehow, continues to get cooler, as a Japanese airline has announced that it will begin to serve KFC on board its flights, with aromas from fried chicken and biscuits permeating the cabin.
Japan Airlines is to begin serving Kentucky Fried Chicken to passengers on some US and European flights for three months next week.
The Japanese airline is looking to appeal to Americans and Europeans who would want something more familiar and appealing to them than the on-flight sushi that is the norm on Japanese flights.
Americans and Europeans aren’t the only ones who love Colonel Sanders’ fried chicken, as KFC has a huge following in Japan, especially during the Christmas season.
Fried chicken is a popular dish in Japan for Christmas dinner, and nobody makes it better than KFC.
Japan Airlines passengers on board flights to New York, San Diego, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt and Paris will be served a KFC meal that will include a chicken breast, a chicken drumstick, cornbread, coleslaw and lettuce.
As if you needed another reason to travel to Japan.
