Borenstein, on china. I got breakfast on that route in F and my wife on J. It was a hot omlette and the normal cold sides (roll, butter, pastry, juice etc).
You in F and your wife in J? How did that work out? LOL!

Airline: DL (Delta Airlines)
Class: J
Route: JFK-ATL
Caterer: Borenstein
Flight date: 11-27-2018
Meal in pics: Snack (Dinner)

Delta generally provides meals only on flights 900+ miles in J. NYC-ATL is one the exception routes (along with NYC-ORD and some others).

Airline: BA (British Airways)
Class: Premium Economy (World Traveller Plus)
Route: HND-LHR
Caterer: Unger's, Melbourne
Flight date: 11-27-2018
Meal in pics: Dinner (fish) and breakfast). Doesn't look much, but was pretty tasty and moist. Not bad at all, but seems exactly the same as regular economy. This is the first time I have been served meals from Unger outside of Australia.

Pretty sure its Hermolis, in which case Hashgacha would be Kedassia (Top Hashgacha in England)
