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.

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.

Someone on a different site mentioned how swiss's kosher caterer asked to service the lounges and swiss refused. I'm gonna bother swiss just a little to show that it would make a difference to thier passengers if they had kosher food in the lounges.

Ps. After every flight that the kosher food wasn't up to par (which is probably almost every time) people should email them about the (lack of) quality of the food.
I'm not who you think I am.

Borenstein meal at the Delta Sky Club.

They usually have 2 options, a vegetable risotto or chicken. They did not have the risotto dish when I was there, so chicken it was.

Meal took about 7 minutes to prepare from when I requested it, and the waiter brought it to my seat.

The dish is 3 Chicken Tenders with steamed Corn and a single mini Potato Latke cut in half.

The chicken and latke were both extremely rubbery / chewy. The corn was the highlight of the meal :)

HT: @dovid1375 for posting about this a couple months ago, on another thread.

Reposting here from the general lounge thread, re. AA Flagship Dining in MIA:








Didn't taste the chicken, but the Salisbury steak was not bad. Pretty small, but hot and somewhat tasty. The potatoes were bland and I didn't even bother with the peas and carrots. The waitress was more than happy to bring me a second one and was quite familiar with the kosher rules as far as serving goes. The ambiance is also quite nice.

Overall not a bad way to spend some time on a layover, but I'd consider the food more a snack than a meal.

Just had this in the DL lounge in JFK, just gotta ask for it. They also had a fish or beef option.

I'll post pics when I get back.
