    Classic hamburgers on long-haul business class? This isn't my idea of a nice dinner at all, plus it's hard to do burgers well on a plane.

    You have obviously never had an ANA burger before.

    It's still just a hamburger, not a real dinner.

    I was very skeptical before I tried it and was very surprised at how good it was ! It is also not a dinner but one of the mid-flight snack selections. NH do fantastic made to order snacks when ever you want during the flight!

    Oh, that's very different if it's meant as a snack. In that case, sounds and looks good. However, I would still object to this being dinner or even lunch on long haul IFC.

    I would take an ANA burger over a "real meal" on a US carrier, any day of the week...

    This is apparently the new burger. Taken from ANA's Japanese blog.

    Impressive photo. Looks like a pro photo and does look good. Only on a Japanese airline would they give you a knife and fork to go with it.

    Japanese seem to like to eat them out of bags!

    That`s probably why the big mac never sells well as it`s not in a bag!

    Even Burger King at least wraps the burgers in paper, which is nice.
