If you haven't heard of MOS Burger, let me explain. This is a Japanese fast-food franchise business that easily beats the major names such as McDonald's and Lotte. Whilst a little more pricier, MOS has really redefined what to expect in a fast-food burger and fries concept. In this blog though, I will be taking about this concept brought to an entirely different height - literally! The AIRMOS is a collaboration project between Japan Airlines and MOS Burger, where the entire burger experience is brought to the sky.
During my flight on Japan Airlines from Tokyo to Sydney, I was served two meals - one traditional Japanese meal and the second was more of a supper which was the AIRMOS. The entire excitement already began when the flight attendants started to serve a meal without asking for options, as I thought it was time for breakfast. But instead, this very familiar smell of the tomatoes and the buttery bun just reminded me of the days I've spent in both Hong Kong and Tokyo having a very premium burgeinstantly got me thinking its a surprise. And it was! The tray was brought with images of the JAL plane and the distinctive words of AIRMOS..
Instructions came along for those who had no idea what they were served.
This is the completed burger. Below is an image of the actual MOS Burger from a restaurant. You can see that they are pretty much the same (except for the missing cheese on the plane) And in terms of taste, yup it's the same. The unique depth in flavour of that tomato relish sauce on the burger is a signature of MOS Burger, and you also get that in the plane. The entire experience of making your own burger, rather than having to be served a pre-made one, just adds to the entire long flight. All it left was a smile on my face.
As it was too good, I actually ate two burgers (my partner was asleep). Not rather healthy but definitely comforting! AIRMOS was a limited time collaboration between JAL and MOS. JAL has previously also collaborated with KFC to bring fried chicken in-flight. However, this special has already finished back in August last year, and JAL, is continuously looking for other great companies to work with to delight passengers traveling on their long haul economy, soon to be experienced on your next JAL flight.
