Have a mint flight on JetBlue, lax-bos. Tried to request ksml, was told that canít pre-order it just ask onboard. Is that true? Do they stock ksml for every mint flight?

hope this flight is soon, so you won't need to ask every week until 2021.
does the premium plus on UA come with an upgraded kosher food from tlv-jfk? hows there hard product overall?
UA is TLV-EWR.  Yes, upgraded kosher food.  The seats are nice.  Nicer than economy.  Not as nice as business :)
yes my bad its of course newark, hence the $100 uber to get there.

ok great, thanks for the info.

yea not expecting business but itll be nice to get some of the business experience.

thanks.

appreciate the recap.

this is a new product from UA and just wanted to get as much details as possible before booking a really expensive ticket. the travel agent and UA themselves were hard pressed to give me an answer.

for non kosher meals in these premium classes there is a difference in the "upgraded meal/service that you'll receive oppose to business class.

KSML should not be effecting your decision at all.

I thought you love Borenstein :D

In my book it's slop versus more slop.
