ANA Wants Passengers to Help Them Decide Their Next Menus

ANA Wants Passengers to Help Them Decide Their Next Menus
Joe Cortez

For the second year running, ANA is asking for flyers to help determine its menu in the Premium Economy and Economy cabins. The 2019 In-Flight Meal General Election will put a number of potential dishes up against each other, with frequent travelers ultimately deciding which ones make it to the plane.

Japan’s All Nippon Airways wants flyers to help decide the menu for the Premium Economy and Economy cabins next year. The airline announced polls are open in the 2019 In-Flight Meal General Election – the sixth run of its popular promotion.

Last year, flyers were given the option to vote for their favorite choice among a selection of curry dishes. For 2019, voters will be given a ballot of 10 Donburi rice bowl dishes. Described as traditional Japanese fast food, ANA describes Donburi as a white rice bowl “topped with various food items in an eating style called ‘Don.’” The three main forms of “Don” include beef, chicken and egg, or seafood.

Voting runs through the entire month of October 2019, in two stages. Voting on the “East Campaign” runs through October 17, 2019, with the top two selections among the local Donburi dishes of Eastern Japan will join the in-flight menu. Between October 18 and 27, 2019, flyers will vote among five different types of Don coming from Western Japan, with the top two ending up on the updated menu. The results will be announced on November 2019.

“We are always looking for new ways to give our passengers a voice and inviting their input on the services that we offer in order to create a more responsive airline,” Hideki Kunugi, Executive Vice President of ANA, said in the press release. “Voting via the internet and social media platforms is a fun way for the public to make their opinion heard and ensure that our offerings align with their interests.”

While the meal vote is a regular feature for the Japanese Star Alliance member, the carrier has been making waves for their dedication to luxury. Earlier this year, ANA announced a rebuild of their premium cabin, called “The Suite.”

    Simple – just copy Air Asia. Lots of delicious meals optionsavailable for very good prices, either for prepurchase or to buy onboard. (Well, you could make it free for full service airlines.) Don’t go for the traditional fare that has been standard for decades. It’s good but uninspiring.
