I can't believe you said that! I've had their meals so many times and I've never been impressed, I mean, I've had worse, but they're far from good!
on the other hand, they used to put in a card about the 10 mivtzoim!

i dont think anyone would suggest any KSML, business or not, is better than a home cooked meal...
But when you include not having to wash dishes, it can be close...

The truth is that she used to sell Shabbos food our of her house when she was younger, so I'm blessed with the quality and healthiness of the ochel.
But dishes don't wash themselves...

I love how you completely ignored the last 10 OT comments (including 2 of your own). I guess something about my posts must really get you going...

You're right, I also went OT and I hereby do apologize for that. But kashrus discussions always escalate, and wife's cooking discussions don't.

And I enjoy your posts, so keep them coming.

+100 keep it up.

It'll obviously take a while if ever to fill up with all airlines and routes, but we already have many of the basic routes and its a good beginning, if only everyone will chime in. Maybe a post on DD will get more people to help out.

Was just served a Hamasbia dinner and breakfast on UA TLV-EWR.
That was probably one of the worst airline KSML I've ever had.  The main dish in both, were horrendously inedible.  And talk about those eggs, ughh!  Gross.

I know what you mean....I took that flight yesterday.....the dinner was still kosher for pesach (awful meatballs) and the breakfast was absolutely horrendous!
I have nothing witty to write here....
