Japan Airlines is partnering with KFC to take fried chicken to great new heights --and just in time for the holidays.
Japan Airlines announced that meals of a drumstick, chicken breast, flat bread, coleslaw and "special mayonnaise" will be served to passengers on select trips out of Narita Airport from Dec. 1 through Feb. 28.
"Air Kentucky", as the airline is calling it, will be served in packaging made exclusively for the airline during the second meal on flights to the cities of New York, San Diego, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, London, Frankfurt and Paris.
Japanese love KFC and other American fast food chains that offer food with a decided Asian twist. Wendy's in Japan serves up lobster and foie gras burgers and Burger King has pumpkin burgers and black-bunned burgers made with squid ink.
In case you're wondering, the KFC being offered on flights is strictly the traditional original recipe.
