Japanese airline first to offer draft beer

Tokyo -- Japan's All Nippon Airways announced it Friday it will become the first airline in the world to offer draft beer in-flight beginning Tuesday.

The airline said the draft beer will cost about $11.30 per glass and 20 cups will be available on each domestic flight, except Tokyo to Okinawa flights, which will have 40 glasses, the Japan Probe reported Friday.

Officials said the beer will be served using keg technology designed to compensate for air pressure problems that previously made draft beer problematic on flights.
