Food on-demand aboard Japan Airlines flights
Passengers who fly with Japan Airlines have the chance to try out a new touch screen meal ordering service.
Although not currently available to everyone, the company launched its so-called Anytime You Wish service to businessclass travellers on Monday, April 15th.
Those wanting to take advantage of the service, which is initially being trialled on the airline's fleet of Boeing 777-300ER Sky Suite aircraft, can simply order items from the TV screen in front of them.
Currently, the system is available to business passengers flying from Tokyo to London, although there are plans to extend the service to other routes in the future.
The first meal on board will be delivered as usual by the flight attendants after which time travellers will be able to order food up to an hour-and-a-half before the plane is due to land.
In addition, business class flyers can order duty free items using the same on-demand service.
