No AIR Series on month of September... [turns out to be false information]

Getting ready for another round of trips to Far East in month of September... Currently JAL is serving AIR MOS Teriyaki Burger on their flights. I thought that is cool if JAL serves AIR MOS Teriyaki Burger also on September. I had AIR Yoshinoya, AIR Tokyo Soup Stock, AIR Soba Noodle...

Well I looked up the menu and looks like JAL is not doing AIR Series on month of September. JAL is serving 「特製どんぶり」on month of September, hope it is something "special" about that domburi.

Yeah, if I want MOS burger that bad then just stop by one at Tokyo when I am at it...

Yes, I fly Y and PE, I am 庶民派.

this is AIR SERIES. JAL uses placeholder before actual announcement. Itís probably another AIR YOSHINOYA for fall

Never getting back to the Air KFC?

There may actually be a break, they have not had Air Series continuously earlier. But maybe the colabo makes it cheaper....

AIR SERIES has been offered nonstop since launch

I have taken long haul flights, London at least, without Air Series being the second meal. What do you peg as the launch?

This isn't offered on all long-haul flights. E.g. HND-SFO didn't have AIR SERIES after that AIR NORIBEN as second meal when it was a red-eye service (maybe except for a limited run for AIR YOSHINOYA). The same applies to JL041 which is a red-eye service

Yeah, I know JL 41 is different, as you basically only get the main meal mid to late in the flight.

But I am a far more frequent passenger on JL43.

Are you sure you were on JL043 and didn't get AIR SERIES as the 2nd meal in Y/PY?

Fairly certain, though I would probably not sign an affidavit on it.
