@cdlaz Looks good. Thanks for posting.
Score? Maybe a 7 or 8 based on pix and your description?
Snack 9 - certainly better than the J snack on UA from EWR (yes, I like fish)
My best of the pack dinner+breakfast = 8
The mints were very nice too ;-)
Pretty much identical to mine in BA premium economy flying HND-LHR (except I only received dinner and breakfaast, no snack).

https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=24510.msg2025066#msg2025066

I actually thought it was pretty tasty, if rather small and economy-like.
Yip, tasty, just smaller than any J I'd ever had.
BA and NH probably may use the same ground handler in HND with the same MEL caterer

This stuff looks nice, but seems rather generous to give an 8/9 remember Borenstein was put in the 5 slot

Snack was better than Regal or Borenstein
Once I mixed and matched from the dinner and breakfast it was an 8 (I like fish)

Airline: NH
Class: J
Route: HND-SYD
Caterer: Peter Unger
Hechsher: Kosher Australia
Flight date: 03/28/19
Meal in pics: Dinner, snack, breakfast

SNACK


DINNER


Meal size

Notes: flight was at 11pm, I'd already had dinner from Chana's place in Tokyo (good website and delivery service) thus didn't want to eat the dinner.  The crew brought all 3 (dinner, snack and breakfast) and asked when i'd want to eat which.  The meal sizes were more like a Y class Hermolis, however the snack was very good. Landed up making a combo of the dinner (fish), snack and breakfast just after shacharit.  (No pic of breakfast, was the usual eggs etc.)
Watch out for the bugs on that bok choy!  We don't need Lifetime Presidential Elite on Air Gehinnom!

When do they start putting on passover meals?

thanks

BCN-JFK ended up having Pesach meals Sunday after Pesach for hot meal but Chometz for cold option. Was in group of 5 all gave back trays but none of use ate the incuded Matza.

FA said "mmm more Matza for me - i love it"


 Friend on DL same day told me GA called up passangers and said they have only a few non pesach meals so anyone who was willing to take a Pesach one they would give them vouchers to buy drinks/snacks at BCN stores.

All tasted decent (aside from the fruit which as usual looked gross). The eggs were actually the best eggs I've had in the sky, tho really small, I think they were fresh.
