Update from LOT 2/25/19 - switched to Zetko

Wow, a KSML company that actually wants feedback? Be still, my heart:

http://www.zetko.com/testimonials.html

(Definitely a chassidisha company though based on the "from where did you fly" in the questionnaire ;D.)

Is it the same ownership? I was wondering if the NY KSML market got a third player.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

They say that clearly on their website, but are you certain itís the same ownership. FWIW I think (unlike Borenstein that seems to have the same attitude towards the flying public as itís parent company) the owners of Weiss really care to try and satisfy the consumers.
