Flew CX888 from YVR- JFK on Chol Hamoed. was served a KFP meal from Omnitsky's in Vancouver. The mashed potato & chicken dish was actually pretty good. Served with matzah, cucumber salad and cake. This meal must have cost the airlines mucho $$$
CX probably has a contract to pay a fixed price around the year

I know many consider Hermolis to be the gold standard for KSML. Haven't had that in many years (since the introduction of outrageous YQ on BA). I would definitely nominate La Casa (out of Istanbul, served on TK ex IST and ex TLV) as a runner-up, if not serious contender.

Fresh meals, excellent presentation and packing, high Kashrus standards (and what I consider a plus, as it could satisfy a broader audience from a Kashrus perspective - only dairy and pareve served), all ingredients listed  - no guesswork required.

Attached pictures from recent IST-JFK. Other than dessert, everything was excellent, including fish which didn't have a "fishy" taste.

Yes, they are very good usually. I never received food that was manufactured more than one day before the flight.
