It had been ages since flying with JAL. The amount of direct flights from Kansai International to Hawaii have been getting lesser and lesser as the years pass.
I usually fly United in order to accumulate mileage, but since they only fly out from Narita now, and there were talks of maybe them merging companies and maybe discontinuing the mileage program, we decided to use up our United mileage and join JAL's mileage program instead.
I try not to eat on board, the food isn't always good, and then if we hit turbulence...well, you get the picture.
So, I was all ready to skip my meal on board when I saw this orange box...Mon chou chou's Dojima roll cake. This cake is so popular in Osaka that there are lines to buy them.
Of course, not having tried it in Osaka I had to eat it...after eating some veggies and fruit, the entree was nothing spectacular.
The soft sponge cake is jammed with whipped cream....there is more cream than cake...delicious. I can see why there are lines for this.
Before our meal, everyone also received slippers and wipes for perspiration.
The thing that surprised me was that as soon as they cleared our dinner trays, they passed out these bags filled with a bottle of water, an anpan (sweet bean filled bun) & a milk bread...our breakfast.
The flight was long (close to 8 hours), but at least I was able to sleep.
I am glad that the tradewinds are back, I've heard it has been quite miserable for the pass couple of days.
Hope you have a great weekend.
p.s. my dates and times will be posted in Japan time.
