Re: KSML (Kosher Airline Meals) Master Thread UA TLV-SFO
Class: Y!

GS Manager and Hamasbia Mashgiach came to my seat to call me to the J Galley.
"Hi is it your Birthday" (someone must have told them, Wife claims no responsibility)
"We have these 2 platters of fruit and cakes for you to enjoy, feel free to let us know when you want them"
No Kosher tape or anything, guess that's why the Mashgiach came on board?

Trip reports X25 PLEASE!
Most of the important information I've commented in other threads, eg. South Africa, Barcelona lounge KSML, EWR Art lounge KSML, Schmoozy in TLV
LAS: Conferences and meetings (do you want to hear about the packed kosher lunch) Ace of Steaks is great
Other US locations: Do we need a report  ;D
South Africa - nothing that isn't covered in that thread, or I haven't updated in the wiki
Moscow, London, Berlin, Athens, Zurich, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Delhi - I think others have covered
Lagos and Accra - true, been a few times, needs a report
Bogota - ok, will try work on a report
KTM - yip, will try report, didn't go as a backpacker and advice for business is certainly different
TLV: Is a new report required?

Re: KSML (Kosher Airline Meals) Master Thread NRT depends on the ground handling company
ANA HND-SYD J served food food from Ungers in MEL
Qantas-HND SYD served me a Stogels Long Life box (not the frozen that I got on TK from SIN) which even the crew were shocked at the contents

Re: DDF DO: NYC Edition?
Great DO, what a turnout!!!
Nice to ne in NYC and meet some of you.
FA on UA90 didn't understand why I declined the KSML in C "there isn't Kosher food in the lounge, you must be starving"
Dino rib was the best pre flight meal ever!

Re: South Africa Master Thread
Car rental/car hire from Cape Town/CPT: has anyone been able to waive CDW and/or make use of primary car rental insurance benefit on a Chase card or secondary car rental insurance on AmEx?

- Budget website for CPT airport says CDW is mandatory and can't be waived.

- AVIS website for CPT airport says CDW is optional.

- Any other suggestions? Worth it to just splurge on car rental company's insurance?
Rented from Avis, Hertz and Europcar in 2019 - got CDW waived with Chase from all 3 but they did put a "hold" on my card at Europcar.
However it depends how you book the rental. If you booked with CDW included at time of booking you'll have a hard time revising the rental.

Worth going or overrated?
Been a few times and still think basically all the same chicken with a different sauce.
Thank you @cdlaz ! For AVIS, did you book at the counter, or online? (I have a reservation online in advance of upcoming travel - not prepaid, no option to waive CDW online, but booked through AVIS Preferred and next to CDW reservation says "FREE.")
Online but from the US site.
