Now You Can Even Get KFC On Planes In Japan

Japan Airlines recently announced that the company will serve KFC on select flights to the U.S. and Europe over the holiday season.

A press release confirms that flights "from Narita to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, Paris and Frankfurt" will receive a small meal comprised of a chicken breast filet, a drumstick, bread, lettuce, and coleslaw.

The company is calling the promotion, which will run from December 1 to February 28, "Air Kentucky Fried Chicken."

The promotion is just another sign of Japan's love of KFC and other American fast food companies. 

The L.A. Times reports that "Japan is a voracious consumer of American fast food..." particularly around the holidays.  The Japanese are known for their obsession with KFC "party barrels" which are always released on Christmas Day.
