Probably just a deli sandwich for afternoon/night flights like the other short hauls

Airline: NH
Class: J
Route: HND-SYD
Caterer: Peter Unger
Hechsher: Kosher Australia
Flight date: 03/28/19
Meal in pics: Dinner, snack, breakfast

SNACK


DINNER


Meal size

Notes: flight was at 11pm, I'd already had dinner from Chana's place in Tokyo (good website and delivery service) thus didn't want to eat the dinner.  The crew brought all 3 (dinner, snack and breakfast) and asked when i'd want to eat which.  The meal sizes were more like a Y class Hermolis, however the snack was very good. Landed up making a combo of the dinner (fish), snack and breakfast just after shacharit.  (No pic of breakfast, was the usual eggs etc.)

@cdlaz Looks good. Thanks for posting.
Score? Maybe a 7 or 8 based on pix and your description?

Pretty much identical to mine in BA premium economy flying HND-LHR (except I only received dinner and breakfaast, no snack).

https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=24510.msg2025066#msg2025066

I actually thought it was pretty tasty, if rather small and economy-like.
