Formerly known as Weiss Kosher Cuisine

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.

Yes

(unlike Borenstein that seems to have the same attitude towards the flying public as itís parent company)

Borenstein is not fully owed by LY - just sayin

Zetko would love to hear feedback from passengers about their meals

They should make a separate tape for chicken and fish?
