Me too. I actually go to high end restaurants and and ask them to cook my meal the way Borenstein does because I love it so much.

I just laughed out loud ^golden

On board AA in J YYZ-MIA this morning, my pre-ordered Kosher menu selection was not loaded. the FA wasn't even apologetic about it. He just looked down at his manifest as he was taking orders and said "It says here "Kosher"...Not going to happen! Would you like the eggs or the oatmeal?"

Talking about KSML,  An interesting point.
When I flew once from TLV,  the ksml from hamasbia had just a plain yogurt/leben. I noticed my neighbor had the regular meal and the yogurt was a flavored, with a heimish hechsher,   later after they finished serving I asked the FA if they have more from it and they gladly gave it to me.
Talk about discrimination against the frum community...
Why can't the kosher providers give something tasty?

Thank you for contacting American Airlines, my name is Josh and I am happy to address your concerns.

I've credited your AAdvantageŽ account with 2,000 Customer Service Bonus miles to apologize in a tangible way.

Mr. Eliteflyer, we want to be the very best and your correspondence, while disappointing, is a valuable reminder of how hard we must work to meet our customers' expectations. We've valued your business since 2002 and appreciate your loyalty as an AAdvantage member. We look forward to your giving us another chance to serve you.

Sincerely,

Josh Seamon
