Does the WA charge to heat up Kosher meals?

What is the work around for not paying the hefty $50+++++++ @ the WA to heat up a single meal X2 5 nights? Do we just say this is a "once in a lifetime trip" and call it day?!


Schlepping a toaster to the WA is not the most appealing thing

Just booked with UA, 38.5k one way on TK metal.
Better than AC/TK pricing.
Booked return BLR-AUH-TLV for 30k AA
Will do direct MLE-BLR for a few days
Hoping it happens

What are the creative ways to find biz award space to Maldives from NYC? Thought I heard you can add on an additional leg to potentially get the married segments and then drop it off at the end? Any help would be appreciated. Qatar suites is not available due to World Cup

Did you try without the converter or just with one?

As I wrote before, I wouldn't want to burn the villa down  :) So I only used it with the converter
