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)

When I was there last, they had Bagels with a couple of salads, spreads, cheeses etc. Plus coffee/tea and cakes and free drinks from the bar. Quite a spread as far as kosher lounge food goes...

Indeed, as was previously mentioned (in an unrelated thread).  Thanks for bringing that up, as this is the thread where it belongs.
This is what I've gathered so far;
Lounges with KSML (specific lounges and travel class allowed varies) 
=TLV, LHR, FRA, HKG, CDG, MUC, &  Virgin ClubHouse JFK.
Thanks

It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

I believe it's all under the Rav Hamachshir of Ben Gurion...

And I don't think they soak the apples in pig fat :)

Yup Israel is the only place in the world where Kosher ice cream is easier to find than a kosher banana :)

I know, I know...that's what the smiley face was for....as a 'tongue in cheek' comment.  Couldn't resist, as asking about the Kashrus of fruit sounds so funny....

But technically speaking, eating fruit where Ma'aser wasn't taken is definitely Assur, but it's not "not kosher"

(lamont) Every time I'm there I call one of the three mashgichim listed on the te'uda.  Most recent time, he told me that for the most part, everything there is Mehadrin, the lettuce is Katif etc.  He did make two exclusions, I can't recall what they were,  IIRC one exclusion was the cream cheese, which IIRC he said was not Cholov Yisroel.

So b'kitzur, PUTPAC!

Assuming the deffinition of Kosher is "Halachikly fit to eat", I don't see why Tevel would be considered Kosher ???
