Japan Airlines Co., Ltd. (JAL) began offering an Air Kentucky Fried Chicken in-flight meal on some international flights out of Narita Airport beginning December 1.

The meal is the seventh in the Air Series of in-flight meals, in which JAL collaborates with popular food and restaurant brands. This time, the airline provides an original arrangement of popular menu items from Shibuya Ward, Tokyo-based fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken Japan Ltd.

Included are two types of chicken: one with bone and one fillet. The bone-in chicken is a wing cut specifically to make eating in an aircraft cabin easy, while the fillet is a piece of boneless breast passengers can place between two pieces of bread, along with lettuce. Both pieces are seasoned with KFC's original "11 herbs and spices." The bread, made just for eating in the air, is a special "flat bread" with a moist texture that "goes great with chicken."

The package, labeled "Air Kentucky Fried Chicken" and featuring Colonel Sanders, KFC's founder, is an original design painstakingly made just for the in-flight meal.

Air Kentucky Fried Chicken is available in premium economy and economy class on eight routes from Narita to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, Paris and Frankfurt until February 28.

The first in the Air Series was the Air Mos Burger, a teriyaki-flavored meal that debuted in June 2011. The series has since garnered attention for allowing passengers to "enjoy casual Japanese food with familiar flavors in the cabin."
