KSML should not be effecting your decision at all.

could be your right as even the better kosher meals are still OK at best.

saying that, to me the upgraded meal and service that goes with it does factor in. if not your paying $2000 more (in some cases) for just a little nicer seat. these cabins dont even have there own bathrooms. unless the FA lets you use the business class one.

I thought you love Borenstein :D

In my book it's slop versus more slop.

Business class KSML should not make you spend a dollar more than economy class KSML. That's not what you are paying $2,000 more for.

Not sure if this is worthy of a new thread but I'm flying next week Aeromexico in J class from JFK to GRU and I've called several times to order KSML and they keep on telling me it's not offered for ANY of the flights... Including MEX - GRU  :-\

Any suggestions of what I can do?

ORD-EWR in United First, breakfast will be served. Can kosher meals be provided? Not sure if I'll last 2 hours without cat food.
