Airline: LH
Class: J (European)
Route: TLV-FRA
Caterer: Hamasbia
Flight date: 01/06/19
Meal in pic: Dinner

All looked very unappetizing, tried just the chicken and rice and it was actually surprisingly good, but that may be because I was starving

My wife and I recently flew AF, JFK-> CDG business.

Both meals were completely frozen and inedible....
Has anyone had success with submitting a complaint and receiving some type of compensation?

Thanks!

They are not obligated to give you compensation, but you can always try anyways. My brother got insane comp from TK for lack of meal.
I'm not who you think I am.

Interesting. Funny thing is both Schalom and the Vienna caterer carry the same Hashgacha. (R Shwartz from Vienna)
I got Schalom ex ZRH

I still maintain that the worst catering in the sky is the stuff out of Bangkok. Had the same meal twice on ET, TLV-ADD and ADD-GRU

Might look better, but Stogel in the end of the day is edible, unlike this stuff

Maybe you're talking about frozen Stogel, the shelf stable Stogel is not edible.
