ANA: The first airline in the world
to offer in-flight meals
featuring Japanese Kaiseki cuisine

Kaiseki cuisine has evolved as a light meal that
demonstrates omotenashi, or Japanese-style
hospitality, and ANA was the first airline
in the world to offer it on its flights.
Our chefs have a deep knowledge
of traditional Japanese restaurants, and use
complementary, seasonal ingredients to make their
in-flight meals a treat for all five senses.

"The Connoisseurs" is a collaboration between

    Message Overcoming hardships to make customers happy-that's my reward
    There are various constraints placed upon in-flight meals, and I feel truly rewarded when I overcome these limitations to make our customers happy. Although we make large quantities of food at a time, our staff always work as if they were serving meals individually to each and every passenger.
