EWR, LGA, FLL (and most??) United Lounges= In the morning the bagels and muffins NO MORE Sara Lee  The yogurts are OU D kosher. But in the afternoon you are very limited. They usually have Milano cookies but the bar. If you bring your own bagel you can ask for cream cheese from the cooler.

Excellent Chinese you can have delivered free to EWR from New Kosher Special, 163 Elmora Ave, Elizabeth, NJ, 07202, (908) 353-1818,  with $40 min. purchase. Download the "Beyond Menu" app to order with a credit card.

Delivery available from Wok Tov (516) 295-3843 and Sushi Tokyo (516) 882-2244 to JFK.

LHR - BA Lounges - Kosher food is available at BA's lounges as follows:
T5/T3 Galleries Club: Bagel/panini and/or soup.
T5/T3 Galleries First: Main course, usually a choice of salmon, chicken stir fry or meat balls (sometimes changed to spaghetti bolognaise).
T5 Concorde Room (CCR): Same as First, but they will also bring soup from the Club lounge if asked, and can also do a plate of plain smoked salmon (with a slice of lemon) on request. Just make sure you stress that you ONLY want the smoked salmon, otherwise they will bring cooked cherry tomatoes or other stuff with it. They will also mix cocktails using Grey Goose vodka instead of the non-kosher Ciroc (Bloody Mary and Cosmopolitan) if asked. The staff in the CCR are very helpful.
Galleries First and the CCR also have a kosher breakfast option: omelette or 'frittata' with stuff which is supposed to make it look like a "full English Breakfast" - meaning it has a couple of rather poor Tivall sausages included. But the rest of the stuff is OK.
The arrivals lounge only carries the kosher breakfast.
Plain salted Kettle chips are kosher. If you want any for the flight ask at the lounge as they only carry two non-kosher flavored version on the aircraft. Also, in the CCR you need to ask at the bar for them in the packet otherwise they will (helpfully) open the bag into a pretty china bowl for you.

To get a kosher meal in the Galleries lounges you need to get one of the servers and ask them to check what kosher meals are available. In the Concorde Room (CCR) you go to the dining area reception desk and ask there, or you can ask at the bar, or indeed ask any of the staff who tend to float around. If you want soup in the CCR they may well tell you that they don't have kosher soups - they are not 100% wrong there because they don't store any of the kosher soup in their kitchen (which is shared with Galleries First). However, if you ask them to check with their supervisor whether they can bring it for you from the Galleries Club lounge they will always manage to arrange it.

Dan writes the following with regard to singapore airlines:
At JFK, suites passengers have access to the Virgin Clubhouse where there are complimentary kosher meals that are much better than typical airline food.

Does anyone know how this works, which meals they are, must you preorder etc?


In Singapore first class passengers have access to the “private Room” where you can order kosher meals as well.

Once again, does anyone know if this needs to be preordered etc. and which meals are they? (i would presume hermolis who singapore airlines use on flights out of singapore)
