Can someone please explain this to me - I am sorry if this was discussed 4 pages back.

On SFO-EWR (UAL) Biz Class this is what I can order:

Hindu
Gluten Intolerant
Muslim
Vegan (Strict) Vegetarian
Asian Vegetarian
Child
Vegetarian lacto-ovo

OK, so this leaves me with questions :-)

1) Is this an issue with the kosher caterer?
2) Is this an issue with UAL trying to cut the corners where it "can get away" with it?
3) Is this outright anti -jew/kosher??

I know this must exist on DD somewhere - my bad!

I thought that all special meals were blocked. Have you tried calling to see if the other are actually available?
Write to UA to complain?

I did call and they said the list is irrelevant and that any special meal will be denied. Still strange that kosher is one of the only options missing, but thanks for the ideas.

If the ticket is not ticketed it won't show.
