have to call in advance. in the lounge I did not get any kosher food. Said only for ba pax
Officially its only for BA pax.

I asked, and originally they said no as there were only 2 meals reserved for 2 BA pax.

Around a half hour before our flight, they told us since the BA pax didn't show up, we can have their meals.

We only got through the first course as we needed to start boarding.

OT, but does anyone know if the Godiva chocolate served on TK IST-BKK is kosher? It was made in Belgium.

just flew LX biz MIA TLV and the MIA based food was a poor excuse for any class of kosher meal. THE Swiss based meal was quite fresh, tasty and presented nicely. why arent we holding kosher vendors accountable for the horrible product they are providing, when it is so simple to provide tasty fresh meals on visably appealing dishes. >??
