Lounges with KSML (specific lounges and travel class allowed varies)= TLV, LHR, FRA, HKG, CDG, MUC, &  Virgin ClubHouse JFK.

EWR, LGA, FLL (and most??) United Lounges= In the morning the bagels and muffins NO MORE Sara Lee  The yogurts are OU D kosher. But in the afternoon you are very limited. They usually have Milano cookies but the bar. If you bring your own bagel you can ask for cream cheese from the cooler.
Excellent chinese you can have delivered free to EWR from New Kosher Special, 163 Elmora Ave, Elizabeth, NJ, 07202, (908) 353-1818,  with $40 min. purchase.

Kosher food available in EWR Arts and Lounge (PP) May not be available around LY flights http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=10590.msg1679461#msg1679461 (thanks ZOW)

BA Lounges - Kosher food is available at BA's lounges at LHR as follows:
T5/T3 Galleries Club: Bagel/panini and/or soup.

T5/T3 Galleries First: Main course, usually a choice of salmon, chicken stir fry or meat balls (sometimes changed to spaghetti bolognaise).

T5 Concorde Room (CCR): Same as First, but they will also bring soup from the Club lounge if asked, and can also do a plate of plain smoked salmon (with a slice of lemon) on request. Just make sure you stress that you ONLY want the smoked salmon, otherwise they will bring cooked cherry tomatoes or other stuff with it. They will also mix cocktails using Grey Goose vodka instead of the non-kosher Ciroc (Bloody Mary and Cosmopolitan) if asked. The staff in the CCR are very helpful.

Galleries First and the CCR also have a kosher breakfast option: omelette or 'frittata' with stuff which is supposed to make it look like a "full English Breakfast" - meaning it has a copuple of rather poor Tivall sausages included. But the rest of the stuff is OK.

The arrivals lounge only carries the kosher breakfast.

Plain salted Kettle chips are kosher. If you want any for the flight ask at the lounge as they only carry two non-kosher flavoured version on the aircraft. Also, in the CCR you need to ask at the bar for them in the packet otherwise they will (helpfully) open the bag into a pretty china bowl for you.

Nothing kosher per se at EWR, but the staff there will bring you some sliced fruit if asked nicely (epspecially if you are in First).

To get a kosher meal in the Galleries lounges you need to get one of the servers and ask them to check what kosher meals are available. In the Concorde Room (CCR) you go to the dining area reception desk and ask there, or you can ask at the bar, or indeed ask any of the staff who tend to float around. If you want soup in the CCR they may well tell you that they don't have kosher soups - they are not 100% wrong there because they don't store any of the kosher soup in their kitchen (which is shared with Galleries First). However, if you ask them to check with their supervisor whether they can bring it for you from the Galleries Club lounge they will always manage to arrange it.

I avoid LHR at all costs, but, I believe its the BA first lounge.

AA lounge in LHR doesn't have kosher food....BA lounge in JFK has a bunch of snacks that are Kosher, but even if you were to get dining vouchers(Plat will not get you those, nor will they get you into the BA lounges in the frist place) there still aren't Kosher meals.
