Interesting. Funny thing is both Schalom and the Vienna caterer carry the same Hashgacha. (R Shwartz from Vienna)

Oops, you're right. I just rechecked, I got mixed up because it says Schalom Air catering and the hashgacha from Vienna on the same sticker.

Donít understand why any airline uses them! They should be banned by all religious passengers till airlines stop using them!
