Japan Airlines (JAL) first rolled out the exclusive restaurant in the sky dubbed "JAL BEDD SKY AUBERGE" back in January 2013 to offer high quality inflight meals on flights to various destinations. From March 1 2015, JAL will further enhance its JAL BEDD SKY AUBERGE dining experience for those traveling from Los Angeles and Chicago, and those traveling on red-eye flights.

In Business Class, Chef Naoki Uchiyama's menu will feature Corn Fed US Prime Beef with Madeira Sauce and Sautéed Chilean Sea-bass & Ricotta Cheese Gnocchi with Green Pea Sauce as main dish choices. Note that the press release mistakenly labeled the sea-bass as the sea-bass from First Class (but still lists it as a Business Class dish). Below is the Western menu offered this Spring.
