Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, various airlines have started coming up with creative ways to use their grounded planes.
Anyone willing to pay $540 for a first-class dining experience can look into Japanese airline All Nippon Airways’s latest offer, which lets diners eat on a grounded Boeing 777 at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, BBC reported.

According to The Guardian, main courses include Wagyu beef with Kobe wine mustard and grilled sablefish with saikyo miso. These dishes come with plum wine, Krug champagne or Japanese sake.
All Nippon Airways is offering 22 sessions this month for lunch and dinner. Every customer is given access to Haneda Airport’s domestic terminal, as well as an amenity kit.
Japan’s biggest airline is not the only airline that has come up with a creative solution during the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year in October, Singapore Airlines offered lunch costing up to $525 to anyone interested in eating on a parked Airbus A380. Last week, British Airways launched a limited edition meal kit that will be delivered to the homes of customers interested in recreating a meal worthy of a first-class cabin.
