Anybody know what hechsherim I'm likely to see flying RT between JFK and TLV over WAW on LOT Polish? (In case it makes a difference, the NY ends look like they'll be on Privilege Style birds.)

Thanks

What does AZ have TLV-FCO-JFK?

Anyone know about the other way?

Lunch, CM J TGU-PTY: Utter garbage.



Dinner, CM J PTY-JFK: Pretty good, surprisingly.

My thoughts exactly.

I had them catered out of HAV as well.

Here's my post-flight update. Flights between TLV and WAW don't have meals - only basic drinks and non-kosher snacks. (I actually knew that in advance.) Additional drinks were available for purchase. Even on the Privilege Style planes the meal service was LOT's. WAW-JFK had Stogel with hechsher of Machzike Hadass of Antwerp. JFK-WAW had Borenstein's O-U.

Was the Stogel fresh stuff? Or shelf life meals?
