Are these airplane meals or something different? Also, I know that today is only Williamsburg and other locations don't begin until Thursday, but if you go, please let us know which location and what time you went and how the line was.

officially going to be fresh and healthy food. Not sure how airplane meals would fall into that category.

Would be best to see pics of what you actually got.

The picture I saw had non-CY chocolate milk and didnít look like something packaged for transporting home, it was probably just a placeholder.

Must have been.
וואלאווע is a Chassidish hechsher and would never certify non-CY.

Iíll let you know on Thursday. Assuming its gonna be similar to the non kosher offerings. Maybe kemach cereal and cy milk instead of cheerios and non cy. Lunch deli sandwich or chicken wrap, is what the non kosher menu is serving. So again assume it will be similar.

The certification from the Volove is for "Regal-Glatt" so I guess there's the reputation of airplane mael is there. We just need a נחשון to see if they can live up to something better than their  reputation.

I actually checked it out.

Not airline meals. Packed in paper bags (remember this is NYC, can't pack in plastic containers, they will cause the world to end).

These look like school meals (inspired by Michelle Obama).

Fresh whole apple. Bran Muffin (tasted quite good, though texture didn't feel fresh). Hummus. 1% (green) milk. Some sort of whole wheat bread. Lite plain yogurt. Fresh grape tomatoes.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

No dinner. Thatís a sum of the breakfast and lunch packages (I think).
