I've complained about that before. Its a pretty unclean problem to have. Especially on longer flights.

Airline: Singapore Airlines
Flight: PVG-SIN
Class: Economy
Incident: No Kosher Food (after confirming it on the booking)
Compensation: S$75 (=$61 USD) inflight Coupon

the FA felt really bad for me and gave me lots of fruits, and the plan was overbooked so i couldnt ask for an upgrade, and he then gave me a coupon on board.

question is can i still put in a complain and get something out of it?

and would it make sense to complain about that on the way to PVG i didnt get a kosher l'pesach meal, so i couldnt eat!

According to the CC they will reimburse for any amount that the airlines didn't.  So I'm hoping to get the $200 difference it cost me for the replacement.
