AA out of MXP
BA out of MXP

I'd assume any aa or ba flights catered by Hermolis.
If flight is not originating in LHR, Im not sure its safe to assume. CMIIW

I was travelling Premium Economy with BA earlier this week. The tray arrived as the sealed box on the plastic tray (catered by Open Kosher, this was ex EZE), and next to it the BA metal cutlery and the standard dessert that the other passengers were being served albeit with a yellow sticker with KSML ticked next to it.

Having realised that neither of those components was from the KSML (as might be with Hermolis), I asked the FA who also said he was surprised. Seems that they added these to 'bump up' the KSML to be for Premium Economy. Still not good for those who wouldn't have thought twice.

I believe that all airlines out of tlv are badatz eida chareidis from masbia. (As long ad you request the mehadrin kosher)
On elal if you don't request it then its rabanut

On AF it's plain Rabbanut IIRC.

Does anyone know if Virgin Atlantic offers kosher meals in the LHR Revivals lounge ?
I know they have in the regular lounge.
