JAL Offers "No Meal" Option

Submitted
Japan Airlines has recently introduced a "No Meal" option for passengers on some flights in an effort to reduce waste. This option means that the airline/caterer would not prepare a meal for you, instead of throwing out and wasting food and meals that you don't eat, meaning there will not be a meal for you.

Does anyone really not eat the free food after the huge price you paid for the ticket? I'm all about free lunch!

Same! Although you do get an amenity kit, which probably costs about the same as the food

I don't usually eat the entire meal but I definitely want my meal experience to break up the time on a long flight. I just flew SPN to DFW via UAL and none of the flights offered any food more than little snack packets. I was pissed.

Take out the restroom also. Make it a dump free flight, that would save a butt-load of energy.

I was on a C-130 flight from Christchurch to McMurdo many years back. They had a funnel and a tube. I had no problem. I don't know what the females did (including the pilot". It worked well.

unless this also includes a notable reduction in ticket price - do not bother to select. the regulations requiring disposal are what needs modification here - not the meal option without change in price.

And the airline saves money because there's less food going out meaning less food needs to be ordered from a supplier

if they aren't passing that savings on to the customer then I don't care. An airline's profit margins are not the issue here. See my first post.

I'm agreeing with you. I'm saying airlines are saving money which can be given to the customer, but is not.
