Airplane Food Diaries: Japan Airlines

When traveling abroad, one of the best experiences of going somewhere new is getting to try the food.  While airplane food may not be at the top of that list, it is a chance to try flavors you might not otherwise.  Usually, on a 5+ hour flight you have 4 options: 1) try to sleep; 2) bring your own non-perishable items; 3) take a chance on a random meal; or 4) starve.  While options #1 and 2 seem the most practical, they are usually pretty hard to accomplish, especially when the hot food carts roll by and the heavy aromas meet your nose.

Airplane food is, well, airplane food.  It can sometimes be overheated, weird, or just not what your taste buds prefer.  The meals during my Japan Airlines flights were… interesting.  For someone not used to Japanese flavors, the foods were unique.  The flavor palate was a combination of sweet, spicy, and sour.  I was truely excited to try the meals.  The packaging was so unique!

Japan Airlines Meal Compartments

I was a little surprised at how each item was compartmentalized.  My initial thought was on the level of detail that went into the presentation of the meal itself.  It was kind of fun to unpack each item!  Especially since I had no idea what I was uncovering.  😜

Here is a peek at my meals on two Japan Airlines flights; lunch and dinner.  These are the meals they serve in regular class seating.  They include a rice chip snack, entree with various sides, baked good, drink, and ice cream.


Sunrise in South Beach: Miami, Florida

Sometimes we just need a little reminder to stop and enjoy the simple wonders of life. Remember to stop to enjoy the sunset. Remember to take in the moment. Remember to give yourself time. Remember to take time to reflect. And most importantly, remember to watch the sunrise.

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air”
