Why does LX161 have an online menu when no other flight does?

Was googling around for a menu for my LX146 tomorrow and came across this menu for LX161 instead.

Am I right in concluding this is the only flight that has an online menu?

And if so, how come?

Japanese are very particular down to every detail - I presume the market requests such information which maybe is not the case for India

It's interesting that even the outbound flight from ZRH (LX160) does not appear to have one. Or at least not at this URL: https://www.swiss.com/japan/en/lx160-meal

As I wrote in this thread:

I think Japanese passengers expect to see menus before they travel. Lufthansa published menus for flights to/from Japan on their Japanese website long before they started publishing them for all longhaul flights.
LXs Japanese website has published the menus on LX161 for quite a while now.

It looks like they have now made the same information available in English.

I wish all flights had online menus. The low cost carriers mostly put their BoB menu cards online for perusal, and Emirates posts the menus for all three classes. I think it's great to have an idea of what you're going to get on the day.
