Presenting JAL CAFE LINES Onboard All International and Domestic Flights

 

Tokyo, August 24, 2011: Japan Airlines (JAL) announced today, the introduction of a new in-flight beverage service JAL CAFE LINES, starting September 1, 2011.

 

In seeking to provide the best coffee onboard for its valued customers, JAL consulted with coffee connoisseurs to establish a way of serving up cups of excellent coffee in in-flight cabin conditions which requires good preparation and timing, thus leading to the creation of JAL CAFE LINES.

Customers flying onboard all JAL Group flights will be offered the exclusive line of high-quality coffee created especially for the premium service carrier by world-class Coffee Hunter Mr. Jose Yoshiaki Kawashima in collaboration with coffee roasting expert Mr. Tomohiro Ishiwaki. The first-rate beverage will be offered at no charge to customers in every cabin class onboard all international and domestic flights starting this fall.

 

Earlier in 2009, for a one-month trial period in September, JAL offered as part of its domestic first class cabin service, the Grand Cru Cafe - a special lineup of coffee from Mr. Kawashima’s careful selection of coffee farms and tress throughout the world which were also made under the strictest quality control in cultivation, processing and selection, raising the number of First Class passengers that September by more than 2 digits compared to the month before. JAL estimates it will serve up to 10 million cups onboard its domestic flights and 5 million cups internationally of JAL CAFE LINES in a year.

 

For a period of two weeks from August 25, 2011, the original JAL CAFE LINES coffee will be available on promotion at the WIRED CAFE NEWS at Nihonbashi Mitsui Tower, with prices ranging from 450 yen for a cup of hot JAL CAFE LINES coffee to 1,200 yen for hot JAL CAFE LINES First Class coffee.
