Looks like the new meals are only on EWR for now, just "enhancements" on the other routes

Part of the Kosher expansion includes the airport experience where United is testing the addition of a hot Kosher la carte meal option in the Newark Polaris Lounge to complement the already featured Kosher wines. Additionally, at both the Polaris lounge and United Clubs in Newark and LaGuardia Airports the offerings will include Kosher packaged snacks upon request.

VS requires 48 hour advance booking for KSML only. Every other meal requires 24 hours.
BA too. KSML and Halal iirc require 48 hours.

VS definitely did not require 48 hours for Halal. They did however have extra KSML on both legs, including Hermolis ex-LHR
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Just got my breakfast on UA in biz class. The rubbery omelette package says use by Feb 14. What are my chances that it's still fresh?
