In-flight food is not always the most popular, but this Christmas a Japanese airline is serving up KFC.

Japan Airlines is serving the chicken fast-food menu during December on US and Europe bound flights.

Each meal will consist of a chicken drumstick and breast fillet with coleslaw, lettuce and bread.

The airline recommends passengers either ‘‘savour the same, unique taste of KFC’s trade secret recipe of ‘11 herbs and spices’ as it is, or as a sandwich by sandwiching the fresh lettuce leaves and fragrant fillet in the bread, and topping it off with special mayonnaise’’.

Christmas in Japan is a mostly commercial festival celebrated by young people and KFC is considered a popular choice for a meal on December 25.

The origin of the Christmas chicken feast in Japan dates back to the early 1970s when American ex-pats ate chicken instead of turkey. At that time turkey supply was scarce in Japan.
