KSML (Kosher Airline Meals) Master Thread
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:48:51 PM »
It would be great to have a complete lest of KSML by airlines, with info such as Hechsher, company, Mezonos/Hamotzi, CY and CS.
I started with the little that I know, posted in the Wiki.

I never understood the point. You have to bring your own food anyways because theres never a 100% guarantee the meal will come. If it does come, it will say the hechsher and other info.

Some people do like to know these things...
"Never a 100% guarantee" ≠ "100% guaranteed not good".
You would plan differently for the two scenarios.

Reposting all my posts from FT...

LH Y out if EWR sevres Regels (chicken) for dinner and a breakfast (not a hot one) before landing.
LH Y FRA to EWR had a meal from Shofar (Frankfurt local).
CO 84 Y had Regels (beef) for dinner, and a hot breakfast before landing, returning had from Hamasbia.

Heard that B6 has Kosher lunch boxes for sale on the NY-FL routes.

From my family's travel,
SAA Y-class JNB-CPT-JNB (yes, a 2hr flight) & on BA (Comair) Y-class JNB-VFA-JNB got a hot KSML out of Jo'burg (South Africa only has one Hechser)

Quote
I was in FRA this week, the Shul is in the main hall, opposite from the entry to the B Concourse, there are steps leading up a floor with a sign "Jewish Prayer Room". (PS it fits in no more then just a Minyan...)

Today in the morning I was flying out without KSML, so I went to look for the vending machine to something to eat, the vending machine is right in the beginning in C Concourse, it's there, but it was empty and not working......

Quote
In JFK Virgin Clubhouse, was offered (not ordered) a Frozen KSML (they heated it up) from Fresko (Star-K).
SQ Suites JFK-FRA very poor Borenstein meal, labeled business class, chicken, no real dishes, very little food.
LH FRA-VIE a cold meal from Sohar, very good, real dishes etc (a salmon dish).
OS VIE-TLV hot meal from local prov, real dishes, very good.
US TLV-PHL (not ordered KSML due to booking 4 hours to flight), asked by FA when taking meal orders for my choice, asked if they had a KSML, she said they maybe had a Veg KSML on board extra.
When meal came, got a full J class KSML meal, real dishes, food not bad, from Masbia. Milk got a closed bottle of Kosher milk. Got a wraped plate of hot nuts.
