It’s been an exciting weekend for Japan Airlines as they launched the first ever nonstop service between San Diego and Asia with the 787 Dreamliner. The airplane landed in San Diego this morning. This is just one more example of how the 787 is opening up new markets. (Photos from San Diego below by Bill Sandke)
Since you know I love food, I also wanted to share JAL’s special menu to celebrate today’s flights. The flight from Tokyo to San Diego included prawn ceviche, roasted lamb and the JAL Original Hamburger in Sasebo Style - inspired by Sasebo, the sister port of San Diego in Nagasaki.
On the flight from San Diego to Tokyo, passengers are enjoying US Prime Beef Wellington and lobster. The special menu will remain on the San Diego-Tokyo route through the end of February. Sounds like my kind of flight. Congratulations to JAL!
