Japanese airline puts planes to use as immobile dining venues

NICK EICHER, HOST: Well, necessity is the mother of invention and companies have to be especially creative even as we come out of the Covid recession.

Airlines, especially need to find new revenue sources. Japan’s All Nippon Airways for example.

It’s offering an innovative new service for $550: a first class ticket to nowhere.

MARY REICHARD, HOST: What?

EICHER: Well, first-class dining aboard a stationary Boeing 777, so a three-hour fine dining experience.

And if the first class price of $550 is outside of your budget, no problem! Dining in business-class is half the price.

They know the market evidently. About 60 guests piled in to dine on day one of meals on wings.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
