Correct. Whatever that means. The only airline that serves Lubavitcher Shechita AFAIK is SU (same meal for breakfast, lunch and supper).
That's a big advantage of LY - you can request SKML with particular dietary restrictions... Not aware of another airline that has KSML with conditions. So in theory with elal you can order a SKML vegetarian or fish.

Correct. But unfortunately, LY has other disadvantages that outweigh that advantage. FWIW - I don't select airlines, or for that matter fly, for the KSML.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

How is the food on Korean Air JFK-ICN and ICN-JFK (Prestige/Business class)? Are kosher meals offered?

How would they compare to Singapore's kosher meals from new york?

How did you discover that? Not just Lubavitch hashgacha?
