We just did, in J. KSML was Borenstein on the way there and Masbia on the way back. I don't have enough experience up front to make too many comparisons. I thought the seat was perfectly adequate but nothing to write home about.

Was the meal good or is the the same as economy? Can I rely on it or should I bring my own food?

Seat was decent, bulkhead has larger footwells as usual, dinner was fine though breakfast was weak.

Does anyone know if they serve KSML at all on any route? I have a booking for MEL-DEL (biz) and I don't have any confirmation of the KSML request!?

On the ViewTrip/Galileo/Worldspan website, it shows the request put through but no HK (unlike the other airlines in the booking which it does show HK)
When I called AI, they said they can't guarantee till check-in, which by then it will be too late to do anything anyway.

After much observation this is my first post on DDF, I hope i'm not posting in the wrong place. Thanks to all the wonderful information here I was able to accumulate and burn several hundred thousand miles this year. I will be flying CX F LAX-HKG-BKK in a month, i was wondering how the KSML would be, also if i'd be able to request Kosher wine and or Champagne on these flights... I will also be flying AC J  HND-YYZ... And in December I'll be taking QF F LAX-SYD and SQ J MEL-SIN and NH F SIN-NRT-JFK... Thanks so much guys.   
Read, earn, churn, travel & repeat. Never stop :)
