It took us several months before offering an airfreight option because we were trying to make sure that the lechons reach Manila in the best possible shape despite their long journey… We experimented with at least 10 lechons, checked-in as accompanied baggage or actually sent as airfreight or unaccompanied baggage. We used different packaging options including cardboard boxes, styrofoam boxes, with vents, no vents, packed warm, etc. before we were satisfied with the results. While the airfreighted lechons are not the same as lechons that are fresh off the flames, we find that the lechons remain reasonably crisp if eaten soon after their arrival in Manila, and CAN be heated up until the skin is crisped up (instructions included in your shipment). So if you are Manila based, and can pick up your lechon from the airport, you can now taste a Zubuchon. Yes, the pigs can fly! :)
