Welcome to DDF and thanks!
Do you know the brand and hechsher by any chance?

+1 OK certification and it also has "TK" (Turkey Kosher) hashgacha -- presumably the OK is more recognizable.  ;D

One more point that I should note -- I flew the day after Pesach and the TK kosher meal was a chametz meal -- meaning they didn't try to give us the leftover pesach meals.  The label on all the meals were dated April 3rd (the day I was flying) and said that they needed to be used within 3 days of the date.  It's too bad that TK doesn't have an 'upgraded' meal for business class -- but, for what it's worth, they do have fresh cut fruit (for those that will eat it) and they give you an individually wrapped Godiva chocolate before take off.

Mind you , that and the brownie were basically the only half edible things served

On flight from TLV to EWR b/f Pesach, the porcelain of my warm nuts cracked in half, and I decided it wasn't worth potentially killing myself.
And dinner (chose the salmon) was very dry, and had a date of 2 weeks prior.
Breakfast was good though.
Hopefully my flight tomorrow will be better.

Does it make sense that a US Airways flight from Philly to LAX doesn't offer an option for kosher meals?
