i asked the lady working there to see the container the salads came from- they where all regular mikee etc, with mehadrin hechsherim. the rolls were from angels.
Angels doesn't mean BDTZ EH. I try to check but sometimes they get upset.

It is so much more geshmak to be able to eat food on a table, 4x the size of the plane table, where you can walk around, without the ground shaking. The free food is not worth the money.

On PP you may have to pay $27 for guest.

5) UA UC membership when flying (*A or UA?)

I am flying UA and have United Club but can't find anything official that says that I will be entitled to entry to the Dan Lounge in TLV.

You've tried it on a UA coach ticket and been denied?

I am flying UA and have United Club but can't find anything official that says that I will be entitled to entry to the Dan Lounge in TLV.
It used to be on the UA website but they got rid of that whole section of their site.

So has anyone had any recent experience flying UA coach with UC membership? Or is the changed website an indication of a policy change?

There's no change other than rots5 making a mistake and then correcting himself.

IME they are very lenient with this. Barring the time I got a LH F pass into the F lounge, and forgot to ask them to write guest on it (I'm entitled per *A as *G, to the best of my knoweldge) so the lounge called the LH desk, but they didn't authorize my guest.

Are the lounges in that link still valid options for UA Club card members?
