On AA LAX-LIH with BYOK the FA bought the meal to my wife and ask her to check if it's warm enough, as usually he peaks in but he is from Brooklyn and know not to open the kosher ones

What heschsher is my airline meal? Wiki?
« Reply #1414 on: January 11, 2018, 05:59:31 PM »
Can someone advise, I think it will be helpful to start a thread and maybe even a wiki with what hechsher the KSML is on different airlines. Also different routes we get different types of KSML also. 

Ex. BA- LHR - NY- You normally get a Kidasiah Hechser, but BA NY- LHR sometimes you get Borensteins which have a OU Glatt on it.

Actually tried 3 times but no luck (Not that I want it anyway)... Just curious has anyone had any experience with the fresh fruit platter my guess is that there are some halachic issues there....
