As of February 1, 2010, American Airlines will only offer traditional Japanese meals to First Class and Business Class customers who pre-order them. Japanese meals should be requested up to 24 hours in advance of the flight. Customers who do not pre-order a traditional Japanese meal will be offered a choice of Western and Japanese-fusion dishes, which include new entrées designed by celebrity consulting chef Sam Choy. Learn more about pre-ordering and view the sample menus.
The meal service provided will be comparable to the meal scheduled for your flight based on the flight departure time, the length of the flight and the meal service offered.
