How did you discover that? Not just Lubavitch hashgacha?
IIRC it clearly states שחיטת ליובאוויטש.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

LY only shows options for Strictly kosher Fish or Strictly kosher child, are there any Reg kosher options (so I can hope that it won't be fish)?

Hi Guys,
I'm not Jewish but have a friend flying Aeromexico JFK-MEX-GRU later this year in J. KSML seems pretty nasty, any experiences to share for BYOK (if they heat POM or similar) or options for delivery of Kosher meals to MEX or GRU airports?
Cheers!

They definitely did. @Yaalili wrote about it.
Is it still open?

Negative. Was there in Jan (I'll finish my TR one day) and the place didn't have any certification, although they seemed to know a lot about parve and dairy and showed me some packages of chips with (not great) hechsherim.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.
