American Airlines' passengers will soon be able to enjoy instant cup noodles by Korean food manufacturer Nongshim, as the world's largest airline said Wednesday it will serve Shin Ramyeon on the Dallas-Incheon route that was launched in May.
It will be the only noodle dish on the carrier's in-flight menus. The carrier will serve over 5,000 cups a month to passengers in all classes.
Nongshim started to supply its instant cup noodles to Korean Air in 1998. Now Asiana Airlines, Air France, British Airways, Hawaiian Airlines and Cebu Pacific Airlines also serve them to their passengers.
Nongshim is also in talks with Emirates, the largest airline in the Middle East, to forge a similar deal. Moreover, the cup noodle recently became available inside the Sphinx observatory at Jungfraujoch, a tourist spot in the Swiss Alps, and around 1,000 cups are sold there each day on average.
