A Japanese meal is offered on the NRT flight. I think itís only in Y/C as Iíve never seen the option in F.

edit: only in J. Here is what the Swiss web site has to say:This menu is available in Business Class from and to Tokyo (LX 160 and LX 161); must be booked in advance. Please contact our Service Center at least 24h in advance to book your Japanese meal.

Starter: Soba noodles.
Main course: Japanese style with rice, miso soup and marinated vegetables.

I'm pretty sure there is Sushi available in F. Specifically we had a discussion about wether Yooijs Sushi really is First Class quality...

Itís a long time since I last flew ZRH-NRT in F but some sushi (not on the menu) used to be served before the first course.

I read the website as well and it appears that Japanese menu was for higher travel class only but website allowed me to choose it along with kosher as a special meal in economy...will report back once tray is delivered....like opening a present …...

Ah yes, that could be it. The sushi in the picture seems to be globus sushi though, did they switch from Yoojis?

The sushi in F doesnít count as a full Japanese meal. Last time I flew F on NRT was 2018 and the sushi was pretty crappy honestly. On one of the flights the sushi was replaced by some weird Japanese finger foods. Even the FA thought it was weird.

It is very hard to make a decision to pre-order a Japanese meal in C when they are not very descriptive and you also don't know what is on the regular menu...
Can't they provide the menus online in advance? I am flying on a C ticket NH outbound and return on LX metal, the NH website has the entire menu as well as the special pre-order menu so that one can make a decision...

When are you flying? LXís Japanese language website publishes the menus for LX161. The Japanese main dish from 7 March to the beginning of June is sea bream with grated radish sauce.

I have posted the current LX161 business menu in another thread.

Given that NH doesn't fly to ZRH, that is quite unlikely...
